Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Turn the router off.
Insert the end into the small hole at the back of the router, and keep it pressed-in for 30 seconds.
Turn the router on -- it should now be "reset" to the "factory" settings, including the default ID/password.

    How do I recover a forgotten password for an overdrivepro63E wireless internet stick


    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.

    Configuracion


    Go to any Web Browser and put 192.168.1.1 in to address bar.
    If this does not work the the default configuration settings have been changed and if you do not know the routers IP address you can do one of 2 things
    1. Reset the router by holding the red in-set reset button on the back of the router for about 5 to 10 seconds while the router has power.
    The lights will flash oddly and after the front lights have stopped blinking try the above step again.
    2. If you have windows go to the start menu. Click on: All programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt.
    Once the window opens type "ipconfig" and put the IP address under "Default Gateway" in a web browser to access the router configuration.
