Go to command promt and type ipconfig then press enter
look and list down the "default gateway" it is something like 186.128.1.1
then open an IE or mozilla in URL section type the gateway and hit enter, it will try to open the routers main page leave the user name blank and type "admin" as password, the main page will now open up, click the administration tab and there you'll find your password section

I accidentally reset my wireless G WRT54g router, how can restore it?


Not unless you made a backup configuration file. So unfortunately you will need to reconfigure your wireless router. The main points you should configure are...
  • Change the default password to login to your router configuration
  • Change the SSID (optional)
  • Enable wireless security WPA2 / PSK (keep out unauthorized users)
You can configure it manually or download the utility from Linksys / Cisco website which will walk you through the configuration.
Comment back if you need help configuring it.

You need to set up a network password. The easiest is to set up WEP (wired equivalent privacy). Chapter 3 of the user manual (downloadable from http://kb.netgear.com/app/) will give you a tutorial and will walk you through set up. This will keep others from using your wireless access. Make sure that you record your network password for use with your other wireless units.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

I want to change password for wifi network


1
Open up an Internet browser window on your computer system. To gain access to the default settings, type in the default IP address of the wireless router in your Internet browser's address bar and press enter. You must refer to the wireless router's documentation or navigate to the manufacturer's website for the correct IP address.

2
Type the default user name and password in the security dialog box that appears, then press Enter on your keyboard. Because different router manufacturers use different default user names and passwords, refer back to your router's documentation or support webpage for the correct information.

3
Navigate through the router administration pages to find the wireless router's administrator password settings. Change the default user name and password to a unique set so that possible unauthorized access to your router settings will not take place. Make sure to hit "Save Settings" to complete the change.

4
Set up your wireless security settings by navigating to the proper administration settings page. By default, wireless routers do not come with a password for connectivity access. Choose the appropriate wireless security level you need and type in a unique user name and password. Save these new settings and log out of the router's administration setup.

5
Write down the user names and passwords for both network access and the administration setup page. Keep these user names and passwords in a safe place.

Thanks.
Have a great day.

Create a password for wireless internet connection


Hi. Open your browser and go to http://192.168.1.1
the default username and password is admin / admin.
Once you are inside the router, you will see on the left the menu such as network map, operation mode, advanced settings. Under advanced settings you will see the Wireless configuration where you can change the SSID (name of the wireless network) to any name you want. Then on the security you can select either WEP or WPA, i would recommend WPA and you set the password (letters and numbers or just letters) and save the settings and that's it.
Try to do this on a computer directly connected to the router (via ethernet cable) because any change on the wireless will disconnect you.
I hope this helps. Please do not forget to write and provide positive feedback for our fast/free support today. :D

Lost my user name and need to add new computer


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network ?
Or your new computer will be connected to router with the cable.
If it is hard wired to the router and the router is working for the other computers then you don't need to change anything on the router.
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then you should know the wireless settings of the router.
