The simplest way to overcome this it to perform a master reset on the router. You will usually find a RESET button on the back of the router that is "counter sunk" in the casing. You'll need a ball point pen to press it. Press the button in and hold it for approximately 10 seconds or so. The lights on the front of the router will blink. When the lights all come back on and steady as usual, unplug the router for about 5 seconds for good measure. Then plug it back in. When the router boots, you'll once again see the router from your wireless device (laptop) though it will be unsecured at this point! At this point, you should go back into your router settings and re-secure it so that your network (and internet access) is once again secured from outside intrusion. Since I don't have the make and model of your router, I can't walk you through this step, as all of them are different. If in doubt, once you're up and running again, (if you don't have the original owners manual) you should go to the manufacturer's website and view the setup instructions.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need further assistance! :)

SOURCE: i forgot my wireless password and i want to access

If you have another computer that works with your wireless, you can try this application to dig out the wireless key from it:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html

If you don't, or if that other computer uses some proprietary software to connect to wireless networks, you will have to go to your router's configuration interface and look for the wireless settings there.

But if you didn't take the precaution of writing that passphrase down somewhere, chances are you also forgot the password to the router's configuration... Try the default username and password that's specified in the manual, and if this doesn't work you will have to reset the router to factory settings and set it up from scratch.

SOURCE: forgot wireless access code how do you change it ?

You will have to reset your router to factory default settings. There is usually a reset button behind the router.

Restoring the Factory Defaults
Press and hold the Reset button for at least ten seconds
then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily
flash. The Power/Ready light will begin to blink. When the
Power/Ready light becomes solid again, the restore
is complete.

Then the router will have default user admin and password will be blanked

Thanks

I have AT&T WiFi Secured Sites but Forgot Password. It Tells Me its Reenter but its not. I Use A Nokia Lumia 520 Smartphone. Help please.


Wireless Routers have more than one type of login. One is the router management login (ID and password), and is used to log into the router to set certain parameters, such as the SSID (the name shown for your wireless) and the wireless access password. The other type of login is the wireless access password, which you must use to connect a device to your wireless network. Most wireless routers have a way to reset the router management login to the factory default. If you know your router management login, you can use it to find or reset your wireless access password. Your internet service provider can help you resolve issues with your wireless network. Good luck.

Changed password now can"t access router


Your laptop still insists on using the old password that's why it can't connect. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Select your router's SSID. Right click on it and change Properties > Security > Show characters. The old password that you forgot should appear. You may then change it to the latest one.

You may also click on the wifi signal icon on the lower right corner of your Taskbar, right click on the router's SSID, select Properties > Security > Show characters to reveal the old password you forgot and change it to the latest one.

Forgot my Belkin password


If you forgot your wireless password you can take a pin-sized object and hold down the button located in a small hole that is likely labeled "reset" for a few seconds to reset the router to its factory defaults. This will reset your password, but in some cases will require you to call your cable company to re-instate internet access. Hope this helps.
