You can find it in router configuration page. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or 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. Then click on wireless settings then wireless security then note down the WEP key it is your password to connect wifi.Change it then save settings and restart router.Then you can connect wifi with that new password Let me know if you need further assistance.

Open internet explorer and enter the gateway address into the address bar.

Change a Network Password

A network password is a combination of alphanumeric characters that users must enter in order to access a local area network.

Wireless routers use this password to protect the network from unauthorized users who could potentially steal bandwidth from the network, access sensitive data and view the information being sent to and from the network's router.

To change your network password, you must log on to the router's URL and access its security settings.

Type the router's URL into your web browser.
To access and change any settings on your router, you must log in to the router's URL.

This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router.

If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website.

After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.

Input the router's default username and password.

Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.)
Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the defaults.

Many routers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all.

To find out your router's default username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.

Access the router's security settings.
Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page.

One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings.
Find and click the link or tab.

This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.

Select an encryption type and change the network password.
Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security.

Select the type of security and change the network password by typing in a new password in the two text boxes.

When you are finished, click "OK."

Save your changes and log out.

After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change.

Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page.

If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may be logged out automatically.

Reset password to the router and get a new one


Are you trying to reset the router password or wireless network password?
Wireless network password is different than router access password.
To change the wireless password, you will need to access the router page and change the settings.
See how to find wireless network password
To change the router access password, you can log in to router page and go to administration tab. There you will find the place to change the router password.

Reset password


The default password for the router's Web Configuration Manager is password. NETGEAR recommends that you change this password to a more secure password.
To change the administrator password: 1. On the main menu, under Maintenance, select Set Password to display the Set Password screen. 2. To change the password, first enter the old password, then enter the new password twice. 3. Click Apply.
Best of luck!

Belkin wireless g mimo router. i never set a


When changing the advanced settings on the Belkin router, you should change the default password.

To change the password, go to Administrator Password. Type in a new password. Make sure you remember the password, otherwise, you will need to reset the router back to default settings.

I hope this helps.

I tried to set up a password with my wireless 2350 broadband router and now its saying that the settings don't match my network.. i need help


Change your wireless settings on your computer. Use the router's password. that way you will be able to gain access to your router. when you changed the settings on your router it does not automatically update your computer's connection settings. you have to manually change it. try right clicking the icon for your wireless on your computer. go to the connection settings and add a password that corresponds to the settings you changed on your router.
