No choice, your have to reset the router to it factory default settings. Just look at the rear side of your router beside the power supply input, there is a reset button, just turn on your router and press the router for more than 5 sec. Please note that, this action will clears the router’s user
settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask.
So please make sure u have that information before do so especially internet UserID and Password.

To reset the router to the factory defaults, press and hold the Reset
button for more than five seconds. This clears the router’s user
settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask.
You will then have to log into the router and set up everything again.

I dont know the code forgot the code for other computers to get conecct like a ipone for the computer


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you forgot the code or the Network Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed to connect your iphone.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya

How to check wireless security key or passphrase on NETGEAR routers.


Most of the times after configuring the wireless connection on the NETGEAR ROUTERS, the user either forgets the security key or misplaces it.


In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. The below steps are applicable for most of the NETGEAR routers.

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase(or network key).
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Hope the above steps will help the user to locate or reset the wireless security key.

Forgot password to log on for my wireless connection trying to add my Wii and now cant even get my laptop back online


You can check the passphrase when you access the router page:
  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • If the Wireless Security Key uses the default, the Passphrase is the 10 digits located underneath the router under the S/N.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Forgot passphrase


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

I forgot my security code to add a new computer


To check the wireless settings, use a computer that can get online or is hardwired connected to the router.

Follow the steps below:

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type 192.168.1.1

2. It will prompt you for the username and password. By default, the username is admin and then leave the password field blank.

3. Go to the Wireless tab.

4. Click the Wireless Security tab.

a. If the mode is WEP, take note of the Passphrase and Key (you need to copy only the default transmit key). If WEP encryption is 64 bits, you have to copy the 10 digits security key.

NOTE: If you are using a Linksys wireless adapter on the additional computer, you may use the passphrase for the security key.

b. If the mode is WPA, copy the Personal key or the Enterprise Key.

5. On the additional computer's wireless settings, select your SSID and enter the keys that you copied.
