Re: unable to setup wireless network
I know exactly what has happened u did not knew the password for router manager u reset it After reset router , it came back to its factory defaults, now the password will come back to its factory defaults ( if u still dont know the factory defaults password, check manual provided to u with this router ) After reseting , as router came back to factory defaults , it also changed the wireless encryption key or WPA password with which u were able to connect earlier to its factory defaults original key and due to that reason u are getting limited or no connectivity coz the WEP or WPA key has changed. Solution: IF U know the original wireless key or WPA key try to reenter it and see whether it connects or not if still does not work
Then connect ur PC or laptop with ethernet or LAN CABLE (CAT) Your internet will start working with the cable NOW u will be able to open the router manager page Type the factory defaults password and log in Then goto the wireless settings page and check what is the WEP key stored in ur router and also try to channels of the router and see wherher it increases the signal strength or not Once you have got the key from the router manager page Try to reenter it and then surely it will work......... Best of luck

You will have to reset it to a new one by using a hardware reset option at the back of router. Put in IP address of router in to your browser. Then it shall ask you for ID and password. Enter `Admin` or `admin` as ID and `Password` or `password` as password. You will see a web based setup opened in front of you. Go to the Wireless Lan settings and then you will SSID so change the SSID and this would be your network`s name. Then go to subsection security and select WPA2-PSK or simple WPA-PSK then enter your desired network key. Once done with all these things the click apply and reboot if prompted.
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.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router . Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable? If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key. Use that password to connect to the wireless network

Your wireless router is prompting you for a password in order to log onto your network. If you do not remember your password, you can reset the routers' configuration by holding down the reset button on the back of the router, and you can then use the default user name and password to change the settings. HOWEVER, you will lose all of your network settings so if you have multiple devices connected via wireless,they will also have to be reset.
If you need help re-configuring your router, visit the router manufacturer's web page. There should be a tutorial to walk you through the process.

Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer?
Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections".
If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it.
If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again.
let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it
the only way to restore the router is to hard reset the router,which will reset the router to the factory defaults and then setup the router as the first time installation and the default username and password will be restored,i kno this is much of a work to reset the router and again setup the router like 1st time installation but this is the only way to retrieve the default user name and password..
Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.
1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. 2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. 3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".
Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.
4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab. 5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast. 6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup. 7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11). 8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.
Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.
Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:
a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off b. Distance between the wireless router and computer c. Possible wireless interferences
