SOURCE: I can't remember my user name and password to my router

You will need to reset the router. On the back of the router hold down the reset button for 30 seconds release the button and then wait for the power light to stop blinking. If it doesnt stop blinking within 1 minute unplug and wait 30 seconds plug back in and the router will be reset

SOURCE: Router locked. Cant remember the password.. User "root"

Hi,
The only solution for u to login in to the router is to reset the router.

1.If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.

2.To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

3.Wait about 30 seconds to access the router.

4The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. When logging in, type in the default User Name “admin,” and the
default Password “admin” then click on the OK button to access the web-based manager.

Regards,
Ayyasam

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


Hi!

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,

Bogdan

I don't remember my network key,so I cannot use it


Try to connect you computer with an Ethernet cord. If the Internet is working check the default gateway of the computer by typing "ipconfig" on the command prompt. Type the default gateway on the address bar. There you will see the login page for your wireless router. Check the default username and password from the router's manual and enter it. If it accept the user name and password, look for the wireless settings, password should be seen there. If not create a new one. If default user name and password doesn't work reset the router. There should be a reset button or pinhole on the back of the router. Press and hold it for 10seconds. Try again typing the default gateway on the address bar then re enter the default user name and password. If it work your router now do not have a network key (unsecured). You can create a new network key on the router's configuration page.

How do I find my security key for a D-Link DIR-625 router?


Hello,

You will need to log into the router's web page to view the security settings and access your security key. The default IP address of D-Link routers is normally 192.168.1.1; simply input this IP address into the address bar of your web browser.

You will be brought to a D-Link page and be prompted for your user name and password. If you have not made any changes then the default password should be admin. If you changed the user name and password simply enter them here.

You will need to click on the "setup" tab found at the top of the page. Now you will need to click on "setup wireless" or "Wireless settings" to access the manual configuration. Now you will be able to locate the security key.

If you are unable to locate any of these or you have changed the user name and/or password and no longer remember what they are, you will need to reset the router and set up your wireless network from scratch.

Thanks,

Pat
