I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.

When I try to use my wireless laptop, the router isn't working. It asks for a password - I don't know mine?


When you installed the router, you provided a password/passphrase for connecting to your wireless network.
Apparently you didn't write this down or someone else set up the router.
If you don't have access to the admin console on the router either, you'll have to do a factory reset of the router to allow you to set it all up all over again.
This time, make a note of your passwords.

We cannot remember the password so we can connect a new laptop. Is there somewhere on the desktop we can find the password?


  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
  1. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
  2. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
  3. Click Security under Wireless menu.

    There you will see your encryption key.
Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Yo! if you dont remember the password try connecting the laptop to the router to access the routers page or you could also do it on the main PC that is physically connected to the router.

go to the setup page of the router normally routers ip would be 192.168.1.1 but not always depends on the manufacturer.

once your on the setuppage of the router try to go to wireless section and wireless security.
on that you can get the wireless key that should work.

Peace.
