Re: router

The routers I have had will default to the factory password if you press and hold the reset button in for a while. On the linksys brand it defaults to ADMIN. Lookin the manual for your router and looker for RESET and you may find something similar to this in the instructions. If you don't have them you can find them on line.
Let me know if you need more help.

Re: router

Hi Guest,
Harry has the answer for most routers. Netgear, Dlink, Linksys. Tthe reset is usually a tiny hole. Straighten out a heavy paperclip, and press it gently in the hole. It can in front or back. Hold it for 30 sec. On a very few, you have to hold the button in and unplug the router and plug it back in. The most common user name is admin, and the most common passwords are no password, password, and admin. Good luck!

I need a password to get wifi

When setting up your Wifi router, you have to setup your WEP2 protocol. There you give in the password for your router. Perhaps you should ask the person who did setup the router what password (s)he gave in.

If you are trying to connect to a router, that is not yours, even when you know the password, but you don\'t have permission of the owner, it would be illegal

Lost installer/set up driver linksys model wrk54G

You don't need the disk. You should be able to log-in to the web interface of the router at this URL:

If you don't remember the password, you'll have to reset the router to factory defaults and then log-in with password "admin".

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

I set up wifi network in my home and forgot the password I used to set it up. Is there any way to recover that password?

Unfortunately, no. The only way to access your network again is to reset the router by holding down the reset button on the back (you might need to unplug it, then plug it back in while holding the reset button). That will reset your web interface (navigate to in your browser while connected to the router)'s username and password to some form of the following:

Username: admin
Password: admin
Username: admin
Password: password
Username: admin

NOTE: The last combination is a blank password.

Once you've entered your router's web utility, you can set up your wireless again. Don't forget to write down the password...I wrote mine on the router itself, because honestly nobody can see it because it's in my house, so I don't have to worry about it being stolen.

How do I set up a new pass ward

You don't give the brand and model of your router so I can't give detailed steps, but it's the same simple process for all of them. You access the router's setup pages using your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.), then enter the new password where it tells you. If you don't know the current password and can't access the setup pages, you can reset the router using the recessed pushbutton found on the rear panel. Then you can log in with the default username and password.

You can find full details for your router at the manufacturer's website, where you can download manuals and find other helpful information. Also, sites like this one can give you the default password information for most routers to get you started.

2wire routers are usually owned by your ISP, you may try calling them. Otherwise you can do a reset on the router putting it back to factory settings. On the back usually next to the power plug their is a small button that can be pressed in by a pen/pencil/paperclip.

I would strongly recommend calling your Internet Provider first to make sure so you don't wipe out any settings.
