Forgotten password


The password is the wireless router's encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password


Symptoms:


You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network



Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.


If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.


To view or reset a wireless network password:


Launch your Internet browser and type http://www.routerlogin.net in or http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 the address field for your browser. Enter the router's username and password.
The default username is admin, the default password is password.
From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router administration interface, select Set Up > Wireless Settings
Note: On some routers this option will be under BASIC > Wireless.
From the center screen, you find the current wireless security settings under the Security Options heading.


If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.


Read more about Securing your Wireless Network.
If you cannot log into your router:


- If you were routed to the NETGEAR website or getting the "Page cannot be displayed" message when trying to login to router, make sure you are connected to the NETGEAR router. Check your wired connection and make sure cable is securely plugged in and LED is on. If wireless adapter is on, make sure you are NOT connected on a different wireless network.


- Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default access information to reconfigure your router settings. NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

I have a Netgear router -but I dont have the same computer that I used to set up Internet connection. My router works but is not secure


the computer you have should make no difference to how the router works.
If your wifi connection is insecure you will need to login to it and add the security under the advanced/wireless (wifi) options and add a password.
if you connect to the router with a cable then just turn off (disable) the wifi, you don't need to set up the security.

I lost my network security key, router is not working.


Get the user manual to verify how to make a master reset on your router. There should be a small button inside a very little hole, on the back, that you should press with a pen.

I have forgotten the security password that had set for router


First: can you recover the password from your old computer? it may be saved in your browser's password list.
Second: rather than re-configure the router, all you may really need is the WEP key. Do you have that written down somewhere? or retrieve it from the wireless settings in the old laptop?

To default to "new":
The router should have a reset button accessible by way of a small hole and labeled "reset". Unplug power from the router for 30 seconds, and while holding the reset, plug the power back in. This should default, clearing any passwords etc. Important to Note: Lights should blink on the router, be careful not to interrupt power until the router has completed the reboot process. A power interruption may turn it into a brick.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

I have recently installed Netgear Wireless G Modem Router DG 834G but failed to select the path to encrypt my contacts with the internet - in other words I am a bit insecure. How do I change this...


Type in the routers sign in address in the address bar and you can open up the admin page. If I remember correctly, the url is http://www.routerlogin.net/ or http://192.168.1.1/ The default sign in is admin for the user id and password in the password box. User id = ADMIN and password = PASSWORD. This will get you to the default settings of your router and then you can set it up secure.

After this you should be able to use the factory login to add the security.
