If you lost the password for the wifi connection then you can just log into your router by going to your internet browser and typing 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in the adress bar. The username is admin and the defult password is password or 1234. Under wireless settings you can change or remove your wifi password.
If you have changed your log in password for the router then you will have to reset your router. To reset your router to factory defaults, use a pen or paperclip to press and hold the Reset button for approximately 10 seconds until the Test light blinks. Release the button and wait for the router to reboot.
Let me know how this goes and if you have any further questions.
Hi,on the back of your router or the very bottom,you will see a reset button.Press that and hol for about 10 seconds.Make sure you have the IP adress for the router,as this procedure will rest it back to default.
The cable modem uses an ethernet connection to the router. Open the router and check the status, if you see the time warner ip address in the status page of the router, then you have internet connection.
Hopefully if you try the following steps, you might be able to get to the problem.
Disconnect the router, and make a call with your telephone. If this does not work, contact your phone company.
Reconnect the router, checking that all cables attached to the router and computer are secure.
Check that the WAN light is green or blinking green. This may take several minutes after connecting or rebooting the router. If the WAN light is off or blinking yellow, contact your ISP.
Check the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If not, move the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual.
Check if the LED on the Ethernet adapter in your computer is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue this document.
Power off the router.
Power the router on again.
If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router, as described below in reset router.
If you still cannot log on to the router, try to get assistance from Netgear at www.netgear.com.
Run the router's SmartWizard. This lets the router discover whether you have a static or dynamic IP address, and whether you are using PPPoE to connect to your ISP. (For routers without this utility, go to Step 14.)
If a dynamic IP address is discovered, go to Step 15.
If PPPoE is discovered, configure your router with the username and password from your ISP. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
If a static IP address is discovered, configure your router with this information given by your ISP: the IP address for your router, the address of the ISP's DNS, and the address of the gateway. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
If the smart configuration utility does not find an IP address:
Power off the router.
Power on the router.
Go back to Step 10.
Click Test to access NETGEAR's online test page. If the page displays, then you have Internet access!
If the page does not display in a minute, you may need to do something called MAC spoofing, which I listed below.
Find out if the modem's IP address can be seen by looking at the Router's Status Page, as described in the manual. If not, then reboot the router and computer, in that order. Wait for the router to completely reboot before starting your computer.
If the router's IP is seen, then there is a problem with your browser's settings. Your security may be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser may be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to "High", change it to "Medium". Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are greyed out, then settings for a non-dial-up connection are being used.
Reset for routers with reset button on back panelWrite down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
Release the button.
Wait for the router to reboot.
Log in with the default password.If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
Unplug the router's power.
Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
Wait for the router to reboot.
Log in with the default password.
Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router.If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records.
Disconnect other computers from the router.
(If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.)
In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1.
Type admin for the username, password (or 1234)for the password, and click OK.
Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address.
Select Use Computer MAC Address.
Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address.
Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.
I tried to get everything together to try to help you out. Hopefully this stuff will get you online!
With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and
hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will
flash and this will restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1.
This should show the router status page with the default settings.
This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).
Your modem has already registered itself with the MAC address of your computer, so it doesn't recognize the MAC of your router. In cases like this you have two options:
Configure your router to clone the MAC of your computer
Connect the router to your modem and do a soft reset so the modem registers itself with the MAC of your router.
Clone MAC - Go to your routers Admin web interface and on the main page you should see the "Router MAC Address" section at the bottom. Select "Use Computer MAC Address" and click "Apply" and your router should reboot and you'll be back in business.
Soft Reset -
Plug the modem into the router via the ethernet cable then do a soft
To do a soft reset, do the following:
pull the power cord from the modem
count to 5
hold down the Reset EMR button on the modem
plug back in the power
count to 30 while holding the Reset EMR button (the modem should be blinking a lot)
release the Reset EMR button and see what happens.
