Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Idon't know what my security code is for my belkin router.


To reset your WiFi password, run the disc that came with the router, or look at the back of the router for instructions on accessing your router thru ethernet cable to reset your password. I suggest trying to run the disc first, because if you change something in the router setup that you shouldn't then you could end up with more problems. If you don't have the disc, then often router manufacturers will put info on the back of the router so that you can gain access. Look for an IP Address (Example: //192.168.2.254) If you find this, then go to a computer that is connected to the router thru the ethernet cable and open up your Internet Explorer, go to the address bar and type in the IP address as it appears on the back of the router. After this it may ask you for a Username and Password. If so, then it also will likely be on the back of the router. Once you gain access to the router's program be careful not to change anything other than the security password. Look for an area labeled Wireless Settings or something similar to that. Once you have reset or changed your wifi password, click Save or Apply if you see that on your screen, then logout of the router's program and close out your Internet Explorer.

Want wireless paswrd


Hi!

Depends on the setting of your access point or wireless router. To get the wireless password you need to login to the web-based configuration of your access point or wireless router. To access the router or access point go to your web browser and type in the ip address of your access point or router.
login and get your wireless security code there.

I hope this helps.

Accessing and changing present WEP security code


Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser address bar, which will allow you to access the routers settings(do this from a computer that is connected to the router, of course). Once inside, use the default user name 'admin' and the password 'password' to conduct any changes you would like to make. If you need to reset the router becuase you've changed the password and have now forgotten, look for a small hole somewhere at the back of the router, and push a pin in (carefully) until you feel you've pressed a small button. That should bring your router back to factory settings.

I have (stupidly) disabled the NAT feature of my Belkin wireless G router, without specifying an IP address to access it, and so can get no access to the wireless network from any pc. Is there a way to...


to turn the NAT feature back on in the belkin router, just reset it.

And you can always tell what address (known as the gateway address) access the router, which ip,

by clicking start, run, and then type cmd and click 'OK'

in the black window that pops up, type 'ipconfig' without the commas and hit enter on your keyboard

look for the default gateway

if nat was on, or after you reset it,

its 192.168.2.1

type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of internet explorer to access the router

most routers default password is ither admin , or password

spin

I can not get on the internet through my Linksys Model WRT54G.


You're a little sparse on details there. The first thing to try is to access the router itself, by typing http://192.168.1.1 into your browser's address bar. Try it first with wireless, and if that fails with a wired connection. If you can access the router, log on and make sure the DHCP settings are correct for your service provider (who can provide you with those details if you need them). If you can access it with a wired connection, but not with wireless, reset the router using the tiny reset button on the back - it may be that it's encrypting the connection and you don't know the key, and resetting it to factory defaults will solve that problem.

Forgot the password/code/security to let somebody else onto my linksys home wireless network. Don't remember how to do any of it or retrieve the security code to access the secure wireless network


Hi,

The easiest would be to reset the router using the small recessed button at the back of the unit. Performing a full hard reset (pressing reset more than 10 seconds) would clear the password. Of course, this action would also clear all other configurations and settings reverting the unit back to factory default.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I came back from vacation and my wireless network is showing up as security encripted. I've never set a security code how do I reset?


Hi,

Two way to remove security encryption:
1. disable in your wireless setup (Either the WEP or WPA);
2. full reset the router. Press the small recessed button for more than 10 seconds. (However this will also remove and and all settings of the router including the WAN)

For simplicity, perhaps option ! would be the safest for your requirement.

If for some reason the above does not work for you, pls post back brand and model of your router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Try the reset switch on the back of the router. Using a paperclip, hold the reste switch in for 30 secs and then power down the router. Once that is completed, you should be able to access the router config page under factory settings.
