If you press the reset button on the back of the Belkin wireless router, it will reset the router back to the factory defaults and that includes the login and password.

SOURCE: ZyXEL P-660HW-D3 password change

There should be a tiny recessed 'button' (usually more of a hole) in the back of your router. This may be marked 'reset'.

To use this to reset your router, the manual for the Zyxel P660HW router advises that your power LED should be on, but not blinking.

Push the end of an opened out paperclip into the 'reset' button (hole) for 10 seconds, or until the power LED blinks. This restores your defaults. The manual I have advises that your password will be reset to 1234. If you have a manual, please check this.

Good luck ;-)

SOURCE: reset and setup help on dynex dx-wgrtr wrireless g router

Hi guys, I have the same router and I had the same issue. I just figured out how to fix it. All you have to do is access the mac ip address and it will give you all of the information that you need. It will show you your old password (which you can reset if you want), also it lets you access all of the settings on the Dynex router. The mac (ip) address for this router is http://192.168.2.1/. I recomend righting this (along with your password) on the router itself with a sharpy (marker) so that you can find it quickly in the future if you have the same problem. Godd luck, I hope this helps you.

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

I am having trouble resetting a password on netgear to accomodate an IPAD


Hi rammjoe,

I'm not sure if you're reffering to the password of the router or the password of the network or Network Key. You don't need to worry listed below are all the sters on how to obtain both password.

If you want to obtain the password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Go to the Wireless Settings Page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.

You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

PURCHASED A SECOND LAPTOP TODAY AND THERE IS A SECURITY CODE(PASSWORD) REQUIRED TO ALLOW THIS COMPUTER ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE ...HOW DO RETREIVE THIS OR SET UP NEW ..I HAVE A 108 MBPS WIRESLESS...


it sounds like you are trying to access a computer from another computer.

you need to:

1. configure a home network so both computers can see each other:
vista
xp
7
2. now you need to share folders
vista
xp
7

now if by ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM I HAVE you mean your network, you need to know what passcode or key code your router was set up with. if you didn't setup security for your password talk to the person that did and find out what the password is. if you can't reach this person you may need to reset your password to defaults which should automatically allow access to any computer your bring into your wireless network (not recommended without security) and then you should reconfigure security and make a note or remember the new password or keycode so you can configure the new and any other computer you want to allow to connect to your network.. this is how you can set to router back to defaults:

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password
or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 5 seconds).
2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

for more info on how to reconfigure your router and security for it here's your router's manual

good luck
