Re: factory defaults on ss2510 powerline router

Look for a small reset button. It would typically be concealed in a small hole where it can be pressed with a paper clip. Try pressing the reset button for about 15 seconds, then release it. If this fails to reset to defaults, turn off the the reset button....turn on the power while holding the reset button in...continue to hold the reset button for about 15 seconds.
Good luck...and I hope this is helpful!

The only way to get in to the router without password is to reset it to factory reset. RESET will bring all the settings back to what it was when you got it out of the box. Any custom settings will be lost and you will need to input them back in to settings (like your wireless network name or SSID, password and any open ports). Reset is done by pushing is little reset button (little round hole) that is usually on the back of the router and most times it says reset or it is different color than color of the router. You can use a pen or little screw driver but make sure not to press too had so you don't damage it. Router needs to be on and then when you push in the reset you need to hold it in for 30 seconds (make sure it is 30 per clock not just your count to make sure it worked). Once time is up just remove the pen or what ever you used and you can now log in to your router with default user name and password. This is probably on the paperwork you got with the router. If you don't have it just Google your model and most times you can find it there. If not you might have to call support and just ask them. Hope this helps.

Need password to my netgear router n 300

what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.
If you need more help post back! Thumbs and testimonial are welcome!

I need to retrieve my password on the Speedstream 6520 Router so I can log in wireless with my iphone.

not possible to retrieve a password! that's why they are secure... if you have your ISP ADSL setup details you can reset the router to factory default and reprogram it from scratch, or call their help desk BEFORE you do it and ask them to email you the connection details before you start. then WRITE the password on a label and stick it to the router.

Well, can I plug my powerline unit into a powerstrip anyway?

While *technically* the Powerline network can function when plugged into a low-end powerstrip, i.e. a powerstrip with a simple fuse, this *seriously* degrades performance, and can block the Powerline network completely.

I have a large house (e.g. 4,000 sq ft). Will the Powerline network work throughout my house?

While the homeplug 1.0 standard was optimized for homes of around 2000 square feet, our Powerline devices have been tested with excellent results in homes of up to 7,000 square feet.
