Factory default for most routers are User: admin PW: administrator (All lower case). If that does not work and you were using that router with a provider that set it up contact the provider that set it up and they should be able to tell you what was used. As a last resort. Almost all routers have a Manual reset button or procedure to use in cases like this. Press that button or follow that procedure and it should clear everything off the router. These resets are usually a very small button located on the back or bottom that you have to use a tooth pick or needle to access. Sometimes they are market sometimes they aren't. If it isn't marked when you look in the hole you should see blue or red. If by chance you had wireless active on the router and it was active, someone else stealing a free connection may have put that password on the router to make sure you didn't lock them out. When ever you activate wireless you should also activate the WEP or WPA security on it as well. To access the router after resetting it you should use a cable at first as the wireless will most likely be set to no initially. You should be able to access this using, if that doesn't work use Those are the most commonly used addresses.

Model name wbmr-hp-g300h, i have lost the password so it cannot be log in

Did you loose WiFi access password or router password?
If it's WiFi password then you can connect over Ethernet cable, login to the router (default password is blank) and change WiFi password.
If it's router password you will need to reset it to factory defaults and setup everything from scratch.

Here is the manual with the details.

How to put password on my router?

All routers have an IP address (looks like 192.168.???.???). If you type the address into your web browser's address bar, it should take to you to the router's configuration menu. From there you can set a password. To find this address, either look on the bottom of your router, in it's manual or at the manufacture's website.

  1. After unpacking your Buffalo wireless router, connect the ethernet cable from your jack to the rightmost ethernet port on the back of the router. This is the blue WAN port labeled "Internet". Next, use another ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router, using any of the 4 remaining open ethernet ports on the back. Finally, plug the AC adapter into the power port on the router and plug it into the wall.
  2. Once the router has been plugged into the network and powered on, the power light will come on and the other status lights on the front will go through a series of flashes. Once the leftmost diagnostic light labeled "Diag" has gone off and the light labeled "Router" has come on, this means your router has been initialized and is connected to the network.
  3. Now open a web browser window and enter in the URL field and press enter. You will get a prompt to enter a username and password to access your router settings. You should enter "root" (without quotes) as the username and leave the password field blank, then click OK. You are now taken to a page where you can configure your Buffalo wireless router.
  4. Click on the Admin Config button on the top right of this page. Enter a name for your AirStation and click Apply. Wait for the router to restart with the new setting, you may have to refresh your browser window.


  5. Next click on the Password button in the small row of choices under Admin Config. The Administrator name is fixed as "root" however, you should now choose an Administrator Password (8 characters or less) and enter it in the two fields provided, then click Apply. Wait for the router to restart, and you will be prompted to login with the username "root" and the new password you just set up. If you choose a password over 8 characters long, you will be unable to login and will have to reset your wireless router by using the pinhole on the bottom.

  6. Next click on the Wireless Config button on the top, third from left. In the small row of choices under Wireless Config, click Basic(11g). Make sure the box labeled Enable next to the Wireless Radio setting is checked. For the SSID setting, switch to the second choice Use: and then choose a name for your wireless network. You should write this name down and keep it near your wireless router in case you forget it. Click Apply.

  7. Next click on the Security(11g) choice under Wireless Config along the top of the page. For the Wireless Authentication setting, select WPA/WPA2 mixedmode - PSK. For the WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key) field, choose a password that is between 8 and 63 characters (letters and numbers only) and enter it here. Click Apply. buffalo04.jpg
  8. Your Buffalo wireless router will restart and is now configured to connect securely to the Internet.

Cannot open web page through router

Try opening network connections TCP/IPv4 on your pc and add ip address manualy to be in the same number match the same as your router ie default gateway and preferred DNS Server eg or depending on what default the router is set on the ip address should be the same apart from the last no. eg or subnet mask will default to the right setting if you push the tab key after entering the ip address

Hope this helps
