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

    if ur talking abt the router manager password, if u had changed it earlier and u have forgot it , no way to get it back. u will have to reset it so that it can go back to factory defaults but in that case u will need to find the factory defaults password....
    if u did not change it then check manual that u got with router
    Generally it shud be
    username: "admin"
    password: "admin" or could be "password"

    and


    if u are talking abt the WEP ( wireless encryption key password or WPA by which u connect to wireless ), if u had changed it earlier and u have forgot it , no way to get it
    back. u will have to reset it so that it can go back to factory
    defaults but in that case u will need to find the factory defaults WEP key and that would be available to u in the manuall that u got with router or at that the back of the router or at its bottom ( it would be printed there )

I have a new lap top which is recognising the wireless network and then asking for a network security key. How do I find this?


The network security key is essentially a password that was setup to control access to your network. Presumably, when you set it up you gave it a password that you could remember, but not so obvious that people could easily guess. If you've forgotten or lost the password, you can reset the router by using a paperclip and holding the reset button for about 10-15 seconds. Once you reset the router, it will be restored to its original factory defaults and you can then setup again your wireless networking.

I have a DIR-655, can't log on with my Itouch, also can't remember password and have not been able to reset


There is a reset button on the back of your router, hold this down for 30 seconds with a pen. You will need to go through the whole setup process after this.

MAC Book Pro unable to connect the wi-fi. Connection timed out er


Reset your wireless password/key. Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

Unable to setup wireless network


you will need to search the wireless networks again as the old settings will still be assigned to the wireless card.

 

So refresh the list of networks and then click on your network to connect.
