    It should be listed under wireless security settings on the router's embedded webpage athttp:// If you never changed the router's password, the default password is admin (no user name). If the router password was also changed and you forgot that, you might be best just doing a factory reset. There's a little black button on the back of the router you need to press for about 15 seconds, then everything about the router will be just like it was when it was new (no wireless security, any DSL accounts will be wiped if there were any)

You will basically have to reset the router then redo your wireless setup in the router, don't forget to write it down.

  • If you also have forgotten the password to your WiFi router, the first solution is to try ID and default password as specified in the router's documentation.
  • If it does not work,reset your access point or your WiFi router with the help of default settings. To do this, see your hardware documentation. On almost all routers, there is a small hole for resetting the router.

    You will have to reset the router. Hit the reset on the back of the unit.
    If you do not have the software and manual it can be downloaded from
    you will need to select the correct WRT54G version.
    Connect your computer directly to the router using a cat5 cable.
    Follow the instructions in the manual to set up the router.

    I cannot get the roku to connect to my wifi i cannot remember original password so i am trying to use the guest it keeps giving me a code 011 help

    You will have to either remember your password, or reset your wifi back to factory settings and set up a new password. In order to clear the "code 011" error, you will have to hold the reset button down on the Roku for at least 30 seconds to do a factory reset. But, don't do this until you get your wifi password issue squared away first.

    I hope that helps.

    How to find ur wifi password

    The D-link support desk can help with the default password to the unit, but can not tell you what your wifi password is. If you have a device on wireless you can go to the wifi adapter and usually check a box that says "show password in text". If that is not an option, log into the D-link and change the wifi password to something you know and can remember.

    Note: changing the wifi password will break the wireless connection to any existing thing that uses wifi. You will have to go to each device and change them to the new password.

    Don t know wifi password for my home

    Wireless routers have a pre-set wifi password from the factory and also have a recessed small reset button on the routers. You should look up your specific wireless router online to find out what the factory password is and also how to reset it to that factory password.

    After doing so be certain to go back and change the password to something you can remember. Write the password down in a secure location, etc..

    I just purchased a Nook eBook and I need my WiFi password to make it work. How can I create and reset a new password?

    I assume you already have WiFi, if you don't, I suggest going out to wal-mart and buying a cheap wireless router to get you started. Then the instructions should explain how to get the password set up.
    If you already have WiFi and the problem is that you forgot your password, then this should be able to be fixed easily if you know or have not changed the password for your WiFi router. Below is a set of steps to resolve the issue. The only requirement is a computer connected to the same router via WiFi or Ethernet.
    1. Open Command Prompt (in windows) or open Terminal (in Mac OSX) 2. In the command line, enter "ipconfig" and press enter. 3. Look for Default Gateway and remember the corresponding IP Address. (Format: ###.###.###.###) It might look like but not necessarily. 4. Remember that IP Address (write it down, copy it, do something). 5. Open your favorite web browser and enter that IP Address into the URL box. 6. This should ask you login, if it doesn't, skip step 7. 7. use the username that you set up the router with, or if you didn't change it, try using "admin" as the username and "admin" as the password. Try not using a password. If you still can't figure it out, use google to try and find the default password for your brand of router. 8. Once logged in, you can restore factory settings, or change your WiFi Password.
    Having more information would have been helpful. (Aka - Router Brand, Is it your router, are any computers connected to it) Hope this was helpful.

    Need a password to my wifi

    If you don't remember it, you can get it or reset it by logging to your dsl wireless router. Once you are in router, go to wireless tab, look for passpharse or wep key. You can get password from here or you can even change it. Click OK when done, your router will be restarted. Once restart is done, you can get in wifi using that password.
    Good luck
