1. Log into your router by accessing either:

http://192.168.1.1/or http://192.168.0.1/

only one of the above will work.

2. Enter your user name and password that you set for the router. If you did not change it, use the default:

Username: admin
Password: password

3. Click on the Wireless Settings link.

4. Your WEP key will be in the wireless security settings. Key1 is the key you are looking for.

'I've forgotten the router password,' is a common problem. But first, which password do you need?
  1. If you want to login to your router configuration screen - you need the router login password.

  2. If you want to connect (say) a new laptop to your wireless internet connection – you need the network key. This is the encryption key used to secure your wireless signal. Windows asks for this key when you try to connect.
Here’s a rough guide to what to do in each case. For detailed instructions, check your manual. If you can't find a manual, follow the tip How To Find A Router Manual.


1) Retrieving a lost network key - so you can connect (say) a new laptop to your wireless network

i) Login to your router. Do this by entering http://192.168.0.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. If you don’t have these, see Step 2, ‘Retrieving a lost router password’.

ii) In the screen that you see, go to the section headed Wireless, Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK etc – but that’s the one you need.

Tip: Write the network key down on a label or piece of paper, and stick it to your router.


2) Retrieving a lost router username/password - so you can login to your router interface

i) First, see if there is a label on the base of your router, showing the correct username and password.

ii) Otherwise, try the defaults and see if they work. Common default usernames are admin, or blank (ie type nothing, just leave blank).
Some common default passwords are password, admin, 1234, sky (for UK Sky users), or blank (no password). Check your manual for this, or try a Google search. It’s important that you find the correct default password for your router.

iii) Defaults don’t work? You will have to resort to a hard reset.

Beware. If you perform a hard reset, your router will be back at factory defaults. Your router login password will then be the default, BUT you will normally lose all your router settings. If you have a combined modem/router you will also lose your internet connection, until you have set up your router again.

If you are very concerned about this, ask the person who set up your router to help you.

Otherwise, you can do it yourself . Every router and ISP is different, but with your ISP login details and your manual (see How To Find a Router Manual ) you should be OK.

For further help, visit your ISP’s website. Your router manufacturer’s website may also offer easy install software, and setup tips, if you need them. Print off any online information you need before performing the reset.

iv) To reset - ensure you have a wired (ethernet) connection to your router, and that it is switched on. Find the router reset button, which may be an unmarked pinhole, often on the back of the router. Press and hold down the reset button as long as it takes to reset the router. This is typically 10 seconds or so (check the manual).

v) You can now use your default password to login to the router, and set up your details afresh.

I hope this tip helps you. Losing a password is a pain, and we've all done it. But - with a copy of your router manual - you can find those settings, and get back up and running fast.

I lost my serial key # to hook my laptop to wireless


Do you have a desktop or other computer that's on the network? Use it to log into the router and retrieve the wireless key.

I forgot my wep key and login password to my lynksys wrt54g router. is there any way to retrieve them?


Instead of retrieving them, there is a much easier way. There is a small reset button on the back of the router you must push with a pen or paper clip. After reseting the router, plug it into your computer and you will have an option to configure. Also, some routers have a button to push to be able connect automatically within a certain amount of time. Retrieving the password involves hacking and some serious skills and programs, so if it is someone else's router you are trying to gain access to, you are looking in the wrong place.

I have lost the pass code/security key for the Msi router at my mother's house. What can I do to retrieve it? Nick


The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

I lost my belkin router key how can i retrieve the key


Hi theresa816,

If you lost the key, then the best thing to do is to reset the router back to it's original factory default. Usually the reset button on the back of the router, hold it down for 10 seconds, and it should reset. Then go into the router and set back up your WEP key in order to put in on your laptop or desktop for access.

Good Luck,

Mark
