There should be a reset button at the back of your Netgear router. Press it for 10-30 seconds and that should reset it back to factory settings.

I have a netgear readyNAS NV+ that i want to reset the password.

Whether you bought a used Netgear router or just forgot your own password, you can reset it and start over.

This is not an unusual problem, so Netgear has made resetting and restarting their routers a simple task

Connect all of your devices.
If your Netgear router is not already connected, it should be plugged in, with one Ethernet cable connecting it to your computer and a second Ethernet cable connecting it to your computer's modem.

Locate the reset button on the rear of your Netgear router.
The reset button is a small inset button and requires a pointed object to reach it.

Use a fine-tipped pen to hold the button down for at least 10 seconds.
The test light should flash during this process.

Open your Internet browser and enter the Netgear router's IP address into the address bar to access the router's information. Generally, Netgear routers use the IP address, but the specific IP address will be listed in the router's manual.

Attempt to log in to the router with the default username and password.
The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password."

If the router's username and password were not cleared away, unplug the router and try holding down the reset button.

While you are holding down the reset button, plug the router back in.
Log in to the router using the default "admin" username and "password" as the password.

You can now reset your information, rename your router and enter your own username and password.

Lost cd cant get my netgear wgr614 v9 to connect to internet

Do a soft reset first. Turn OFF the computer(s) that is(are) connected to the router, then pull the power cable from the back of the router. Leave it OFF for a minute or two. Plug the power cable back into the router and give it a few minutes to come back up. Then turn ON the computer and you should be good to go.

You don't need the CD to get into the router. Type in in your browser to pull up the login screen. The default username is admin and the default password is password.

You may have to do a hard reset. While the router is powered ON, use an ink pen or paper clip to push in the reset button on the back of the unit for 10 seconds or so until the lights flash ON and OFF. The router will be reset to factory default settings and you will have to go into the router as described above to run setup.

The manual for the Netgear WGR614v9 is here:

How to connect WGR614V9 to my computer without cd

Well you don't actually need software to connect to a wireless router, just makes it a little easier. First off if you had a wep or wpa wireless protection key in place and you didn't write it down and don't remember it you'll have to find something small to stick in the small reset hole in the back of the router and hold it in for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds to reset the router to factory defaults. Then you should be able to connect to it by Clicking start and going to "Connect to" and wireless connections and look for like netgear or wgr or something related to your router. From there we can now go to your browser and type in in the adress bar and hit enter then enter admin in the user and password in the password spot and hit enter. from here you can set your wep or wpa security keys (remember to write them down as your Pc will ask for them when connecting again) and you can set up your own name and password of coarse. I hope this helps :)

Forgot password

To ilysurita, cj_mom, top_shutta…
First can I clarify what is meant by a ‘lost password’ …. The original poster here is asking about the password needed to login to the router configuration pages.

If you know the password to login to the router configuration pages, you can still get access to the network key (also known as passphrase, WPA or WEP key, PSK, pre-shared key) – which is the key Windows asks for to connect a new computer to the network. It will be found under a heading like ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Wireless Settings’ within the router configuration pages. For this model, you can find the router configuration pages by typing (or .com) into a web browser, or

If you don’t know the username/password to login to your router, try using the defaults – for this model, they are admin and password.

However, if the router login username/password has been forgotten, the only way to regain access to the router configuration settings is to reset the router, as described in my posting above. I don’t know of any shortcuts to this one. :(

If you have to resort to this, you might want to wait for whoever set up the router to help with this. This is because resetting the router will remove all your settings – password, network key, ISP connection info – so you will lose your internet connection altogether until it is set up again.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend some time and patience, you can have a go yourself.

If you have your original setup CD this may contain a software wizard to walk you through it. If not, you might be able to download a setup wizard from the router manufacturer’s website, along with a quick installation guide (and a manual).

The Netgear site also has very clear troubleshooting and support pages which will help with setup, even if you don’t have any setup software:

Make sure you use a wired connection. Also, print off all the information you need before you begin, as you will not be able to access the internet while you are setting up the router.
Good luck whatever you decide to do
