Resetting the router will erase all the settings of the router resulting it to loose connection (if you are using a DSL conenction with PPPoE settings).
I suggest you to access the router's setup page. If you do not know how to you can contact us @ 1-877-SUPTRIX (7878749)

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.

Cain and Abel is a password recovery tool that enables network administrators to test network security, or home users to recover a variety of stored network passwords. The program reports sniffing and recovery of most popular protocols, including FTP, SMTP, POP3, HTTP, mySQL, ICQ, Telnet and others.

It can also recover passwords hidden behind asterisk (***), stored in VNC profiles, SQL Server Enterprise Manager, Remote Desktop connections and wireless connections.


Other features include LSA Secrets Dumper, Protected Storage password revealer, network enumeration, VoIP filtering and more. Probably one of the most complete network password recovery/security tools you can find.

Cain and Abel is intended for network administrators or advanced users.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Most anti-virus programs will warn you of a password cracking or hacking tool when you install this software! If you don't understand why this is, you should not download this software.


Hope this helps you

Don't know my password


Are you looking for wireless network password or Linksys router password?
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then it might be asking you for the wireless network key or the passphrase.
You can open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings.

Forgot passwork how do i find it


If you still have your username and password to your router page, there is a chance that you will still be able to retrieve your passphrase or password for your home network. To access your router web page and change the settings, get the IP address of your router, usually if you mouseover on the icon on the bottom right corner of your computer, the IP address of your home network shows up. Type in the IP address on the address field of your web browser and it would direct you to your router page. Passphrases are usually under security of your router web page.
Note: You should be connected in your home network to access your router's web page. If you ca't connect to the internet because you can't connect to the home network without your password, try using an ethernet cable just so you can connect to the internet and access your router's web page. Once you have retrieved your passphrase you can disconnect the cable and go wireless. However, if you don't remember your username(usually admin, unless you changed it and password), I suggest yo call your internet service provider for assistance. They will reset your router, so when you login again you will have the option to change the passwords to whatever you like.

Forgot my password


Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > security

On this screen you can see the wireless key
If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is Preshared key

Thanks

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

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.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.

Forgot network password


Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg http://192.168.1.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck

My new itouch won't connect with my wireless network in my home. I have a linksys router.


Here is what I did with my Linksys. I went into my security settings and retrieved my Encryption code. Entered it EXACTLY the same as my password (and not the password I had setup on my router). At first it said I was connected, but no bars, then I went into the info (IP, Subnet mask, ETC) and changed it to static and *~POOF~* Wi-Fi connected.

Hope this helps!
