Onnect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.

You have to be careful how and when you press the reset button.

Make sure that you have the reset button and not another one. Sometimes, there are two buttons.

Unplug the router for 15 seconds. Count or watch the clock!
Press the button (with a paper clip if necessary).
With the button pressed, plug in the router.
Keep holding the button.
Wait for 15 seconds. Once again count or watch the clock!

That should do it. If 15 seconds does not work, try 30 seconds.
Also, the lights should blink or otherwise change when the full reset happens.

I hope that works. If not, we can look at the manual. I hope this helps.

How do i retrieve my d-link password?

If you forget your Web configuration password, you're stuck: you have no way to change any settings on your router. You need to reset the router to the default settings.

Hold down the tiny reset button on the back of your router for about five seconds. Your router lights will blink to confirm the factory reset. You can now use the router's default password to log into its Web configuration screen (look in your router manual if you can't remember what this is). Once you're in, be sure to change this password to something unique.

I forgot my password

No one here has any idea what you set your password as.

Find the hard reset button and press it. It will be by a straight pin inserted through a tiny hole in the bottom or rear of the router. Unplug the device and press the button.

You didn't mention the make or model of the router making it difficult to provide more a more specific solution.

Thank you for your question

I forgot my password idont know it

the only way I know of resetting the password to factory default is to hold down the reset button (usually a tiny button on the back of the router itself) for 30 seconds. This will also reset all the settings, so it will take some work to get it going again, but the password should be reset as well (usually back to "admin" but you can look up your model's default password in the manual or online)

I forgot the user name and password to my Dell Wireless 2350 Broadband Router. How can I retrieve it?

Please look on the back of the router for a small reset button - Press this with a pin or something small and hold it for a few seconds. Then check your router manual or a sticker on the bottom of the router to use the default password for your router

Note: You will have to reconfigure any settings you changed ie port forwarding

Forgot password have reset but still wont let me in.

First reset again your router to factory settings, just in case. Do this by pressing the tiny button at the back of the router with a pencil, this works for most of the routers. Then check the router manual or go to factory website and find out default setting for admin and password. some router works with 'admin'/'admin' or 'admin'/'1234'. check factory website.

hope this helps.
