In case you reset the router it comes to the default settings. This means that it come to the default password too. Clarify me the brand / model to post you back the factory password.

I dont remember my password to access my account and credit information, there is no cant remember password option, any ideas?

Hello Mark,

Although this does not sound like a router issue, if you can't remember your router password you can reset the router itself to factory defaults by using a pin and pushing it into the pin hole on the back of the router near the power source. Once this is done you can reconfigure the password and your network.

I believe however that you are referring to a website or something similar where your credit info can be accessed. In this case there should always be a contact option to get in touch with some sort of support people who can help you to reset the password.

I cannot remember the wpa code to put in to my laptop to get online

there 2 things you can do besides trying to remember what key was used

1. go into your router's configuration page and check under wireless security, if the password is not hidden you may still be able to see it and use it to connect to your router and go online with it

2. if you can't access your router's configuration page, you may have to reset your router to factory defaults which will allow you to access your router's configuration page and then re-set security and password/key/passcode that you will notated or that you will remember

There are two ways to reset the Router’s
factory defaults. Either press and hold the Reset
Button for approximately five seconds, or restore
the defaults from Administration > Factory
Defaults in the Router’s web-based utility.

your manual should guide your through the process for 1 or 2.
here's your manual. (check wireless>wireless security)
for more info on your router go here

hope that helps.

Yes there is a reset button on the back of your router. Hold it down for 10 sec and it will reset all the config back to default. If you are using a lnksys then the default ip is and the login info is admin and the password is admin or keep it blank.

Good Luck

Forgot password for my wireless router and i need to reload it again to connect my laptop

Resetting your wireless password
Connect your router to your laptop through a ethernet cable.

Open the router admin console in your browser:-
Now browse to
Enter admin/password or admin/admin to login to the admin console of router.
There will be a link on the admin console for security and authentication. There you can find the password edit box where you can modify the password which you can now remember.
You can additionally use a WPA / WEP key/paraphrase to protect your wireless network.

In worst case you can do the following. But this will loose all your old settings.
You can reset your router settings by pressign the reset button at the back side of your router using a paperclip for around 30 seconds. WARNING: This resets all your previous settings.

How do i set a password to protect my wireless internet

Access the Router's page and go to Wireless configuration. You may assigned a WEP key that uses hexadecimal value (A-F, 0-9). So if someone attempts to access your Wireless network, they will prompt to enter a Wep key.

Wireless-G WRT54GS Router won't let me or i can't remember the user name and password i set it up as originally how do i bypass this and reconfigure the router


you need to check the router documentation - open a web page and log into the ip address supplied, you should receive a logon screen, type in username and password as noted in manual. If you don't have the manual, you can google model - should be able to find instructions online.

I dont have the original install info that I used

Go on and reset your router. You do not need the original installation equipment.
After you have reset your router connect it to your computer/laptop using the LAN wire.
Enter your router IP address in the browser address bar and your routers page will pop up. Now all you have to do it set it up according to your liking.
