Forgot wi-fi password


if you have access to the wi-fi router, you can reset it to default password by pressing reset button on the router, this will revert it back to the factory settings, including router name and password, the password will be on the router itself.

I forgot my password and can't connect to the wireless router. Please help


Reset the router to its "factory" settings, which reverts to the "default" password.
Then, reconfigure your router, and choose a new password.

I forgot my password and i cant let my friends use this line


If you forgot the password, resetting the router will allow you to access the router's configuration screen again. However, this will reset the settings to default, and you will have to reconfigure the router.

To reset the router to the factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds. This clears the router's user settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask.

Here is the instruction manual for the WR850G Router (the above instructions are from page 1-8):

Motorola wr850g. I forgot my password for my router, I've tried to reset, and when I access router from hardwired computer of course it asks me for user ID and password. Please help!


Open your Internet Explorer browser:

In the URL field, enter
http://192.168.10.1 (the router's default IP address) and press the Enter key.

Enter as follows:

User ID: admin
Password: motorola

Once you have logged in, for security reasons you should change the User ID and Password.

I forgot my user id and password on my wireless g850 routher.


the online user manual is available from here http://support.digidave.co.uk/index.php?_a=downloads&_m=get&_i=5
Section 2 Page 37 - explains how to login to the router and the default values for username and password
http://192.168.10.1
  • User ID. The default factory setting is admin.
  • Password. The default factory setting is motorola.
If you have changed this and forgotten - then you will need to do a factory reset of the router see page 82 - button at the back marked reset - hold this in for at least 5secs

Router password


here is a link to the manual for your device - it should show you how to reset it and tell you the default password - if you have your own password then you must reset it to get back to the default password - hope this solves your problem - http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SB5120/downloads/SB5120_User_Guide.pdf
