Question about D-Link DI-614+ /DWL-520+ Router

1 Answer

Having issues with resetting the D-Link 614+ router. I need to change 1 simple option in the router; however, somehow the admin log in will not accept the password "I think" I made for it. I have tried using the reset button(held it for 10seconds, up a to min , and even longer), yet it still has the password or whatever enabled. I have tried keeping it unplugged for hours and hoping it would reset... but to no avail. Is there a command prompt command, a file I can download, or anything at all I can use to access this router? I am really confused, but really want this thing to work out. ( The setting I need to change is the mps, it is capping my net at 2.5 at the most, which i have plenty more to spare than that because I am connected to my modem and get at least 2x that).

How do i change my password

Log into your router's administration page (typically at by default). There will be a menu with options for various admin tasks. Change password will be listed as an option. If you do not know your admin password to log into the website, you can do a factory reset on the router to blank it back to 'out of the box' settings by unplugging the router and holding in the reset button on the back for 5 seconds while powering on the router. Once reset you should be able to log in with a username of admin and password of password. Once in after the reset the router will walk you through the initial setup steps again and you can choose a new password.

I have a linksys-N router cannot remember my username and password. Where do I start to retrieve this information

If you are having problems logging on to your linksys n router. you have to options to log on with the default. the usual default username and password is admin.
if that does not work. try leaving the username blank then the password is admin, third is type admin as password then leave the password blank.

if the options didn't work, there should be a reset button at the back of the router. try pressing it for about 5-10 seconds. the default username and password would be restored. Yo can also try going to this link.
Hope this helps.
thank you for choosing fixya.

Need to know the passphrase for the wrg 614 v7

The paraphase is something the owner sets up. you can log into the router @ OR Use the default username (admin) and password (password) .
Go to Wireless, then security. you will see the paraphrse there.

If you need to reset the router do the following:

Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.
Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

    How do i change password on wireless router

    hello, two things first if you know the current password and would like to change it to something else: simply log in to the router using the current password and once logged in look for "Maintenance" section and uder it you will see the option called "Set Password", click on it and then you will see three input fields "Old Password", "New Passwor", and "Repeat New Password", fill in all the fields and click apply and you are done.

    second, if you have forgotten your password then the only option you have left is to reset the router with a paper clip (in reset hole in back) but keep in mind you will lose all settings and you will have to reconfigure it. Once the router is reset you can change the password same way i mentioned above.
    here is a link that describe step-by-step how to reset and connect back to router to log back in.

    Hope this helps,

    I cannot set password

    There are 2 users in this router, 'admin. and 'user', default password is blank. admin can change password of user without having old password, user can change his own password, admin can change password of his own by supplying his old password then new password twice. To log in to this router, default address is user name admin and password blank. You may now change password from tools menu.

    If you forgot user password then log in as admin and change password, If you forgot all password then only way is to reset router from rare pin hole. Pressing reset for 20 seconds.
