You'll need to access if from your browser, and the instructions are on the website of the maker. Check that make and model, then there will be instructions on that page.

I want to change my network password


Hi

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Type the router's URL into your web browser. To access and change any settings on your router, you must log into the router's URL. This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router. If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website. After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.
Input the router's default username and password. Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.) Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the default ones. Many browsers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all. To find out your router's username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.
Access the router's security settings. Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page. One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings. Find and click the link or tab. This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.
Select an encryption type and change the network password. Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security. To create a password using letters and/or numbers, you must choose the WPA security setting. Change the network password by typing in a new password in the two textboxes. When you are finished, click "OK."
Save your changes and log out. After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change. Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page. If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may automatically be logged out of the router.

Don't know user and password fpr Netgear router. Can't even find the disc


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
If you have already changed the default password/user, then the only way out is to reset the router to get it to the default user/pass.
If you haven't then the default Username is admin and password is password.
For older devices the password is 1234.
I hope you this will help you out.
Regards, Waqar.

How do i change my router password


Please just follow the steps to change your router's password.

1. Open your Internet browser, type the address of the router into the URL address bar, and open it. The address is typically in the form of 192.168.X.X. This is the local network address.

2. Enter the account name and password to open the router setup utility.

3. Navigate through the setup utility until you find the screen that will let you change the password. You will need to enter the old password to change it.

4. Decide on a new password that has good security to a hacker. The best password is more than 8 characters and uses both lower case and upper case letters and numbers. Some will allow you to use special characters also. Do not make the password anything that can be found in a dictionary or any date of significance.

5. Enter the old password in the change password page of the router. When prompted then enter the new password. You will be asked to enter it twice to confirm that the correct password is entered.

6. Immediately, record the new password in some secure location that you can find if you forget it.

7. Confirm the password change on the router page and log off the router. To check the information and that the router has been setup correctly with the new password, open the router address in the browser again and log in with the new information. If you are able to log in, you have successfully changed the password.

Thanks.
Have a great day.

Wish to change my password on the Belkin G Plus Nimo router and cannot remember where to go to get in and do it


1. Access the router's setup page by going to 192.168.2.1.
2. By default, there is no username and no password. Otherwise if you have created a password to access the router's page already then use that password.
3. If you want to change the administrative password of the router, go to "System Settings".
4. If you want to change the wireless security for your wireless connection, then go to wireless settings tab of the router.

Cant remember the password or username to access my router


Hello,

Depending on the type of router, there you be a factory reset button on the back of the eqpt that you can insert something about the size of a paperclip into for about 10 seconds while the power is on.

NOTE: Once this is done, you will lose all configuration and passwords on the router. After that, you can refer to the manual for the default password on your router. Some routers have default passwords and others you can leave blank.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

I have a lynksys router WRT54G. How do I change my password? I don't remember what the password is


You mean the router password? By default there's no username and the password is admin. If you can't remember your previous password, you can just reset the router. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds, plug it back in. It should be defaulted back to admin as the password.

I need a password for my wireless g router


The default password is in your manual or user guide that came with the router. Accoding to the list found here: http://www.answersthatwork.com/Download_Area/ATW_Library/Networking/Network__4-List_of_default_Router_Admin_Passwords_and_IP_addresses.pdf belkin uses a black password with the user name admin on some routers and others leave both fields blank. If you changed the password and forgot it you will have to reset the router to bring it back to default.

Need to get a wireless password


If you have a router without a password, users connected to the router can change your settings. I recommend enabling WPA security with a pass phrase and a password on the router. You might consider changing the name of the admin account to something else too.
