Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox and on the address line write:
It should then access your router configuration page. It will probably ask you for a password and username, if you never chose one then it will be the default which is "admin" use this for both the username and the password.
Well now you should have access to the router configuration page. I am not sure wether you want to have a password on the wireless signal or the router itself. It is advisable to do it to both so here is what you have to do:
To change the wireless password you click on Wireless -> Wireless Security.
Choose WEP.
Choose wether you want 64 or 128 bit encryption might as well go for the 128.
It will ask you for your passphrase you insert it and click generate and what it does is give you 4 keys for your password so instead of your normal password you now have a series of numbers and letters and on the bottom it will ask Default TX Key, I normally leave number 1 then click save settings. This means that Key1 is your new wireless password I would write it down on a piece of paper so as not to forget. Next time you try and connect to your wireless connection it will ask for this password twice so very paciently write key1 in both times. It should only ask you once then your computer will remember your wireless with that password.

To change the password of the router itself which again is by default "admin" go to Administration menu and then under the Management section and you have the router password option, just enter the new one and re-enter the new again below and save changes. You should now have your router with the password but note the username is still admin.

Changing the password

You want to change the password??

If yes the follow the given instructions::

Log in to the router's administrative console through a Web browser using the current password and username.

In the router's administrative console, navigate to the appropriate administration / security section where the password setting can be changed. In this example, the Administration tab at the top of the screen contains the Linksys router's password setting.

Choose a suitable password based on the standard guidelines for strong password security. Enter the new password in the Password box, and re-enter the same password a second time in the space provided. Entering the password a second time ensures you did not accidentally type in the wrong password the first time.

The password change is not applied on the router until you save or confirm the change. In this example, click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the page to have the new password take effect. You will see a confirmation window appear briefly to confirm the password change was made successfully. The new password takes effect immediately; rebooting the router is not required.

I installed a netgear WGr614V6 but while trying to connect to the net, it requires a password, the given user admin and password does nor work , how to reset password

The username and password given to you is for the router itself, to which is required to enter the configuration page. As for the username and password needed to access the internet is given to you by the ISP(Internet Service Provider), in which case, you should contact their customer service and request it.

Unable to get laptop too connect wireless ..saying codes /password dont match

You should check the password which you have given for the router. Either you are typing it wrongly or you have forgotten the correct password. Try resetting your password and then try to connect your laptop via that router. Your problem will get solved

I cant log in with my username and password

Reset the router to factory defaults by putting in a push-in in the small hold at the back of the router. You should then be able to login using the default password. Default password should be in the user manual.
