How i reset to factory defaults without passwords?


That depends upon the brand of the router. It would be wise to google for the particular brand.

There often are software means to perform a reset but here are the hardware means.

For Netgear:

  1. Press and hold the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons until the Power LED blinks red (about 6 seconds).
  2. Release the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons and wait for the router to reboot.
For Linksys:

1. Press the red reset button on the back.
2. Unplug it from power for 30 seconds. Plug the power back in.

For Belkin:

1. Find the reset button (depends on the model).
2. Depress the reset button for 15 seconds.
3. Wait one minute for the router to restart.

Here is a tutorial for Cisco routers:

http://www.networkworld.com/article/2343961/cisco-subnet/how-to-reset-a-cisco-router-to-factory-default--removing-the-startup-configuration-file.html

Here is one for TP-Link:

http://www.tp-link.us/article/?faqid=496

For D-Link:

Push a paperclip into the hole marked reset on the back and keep it depressed for 10 seconds.

The default user name is usually admin and there is no password (password is blank).

What happens when i push the wps button


The WPS button is used to configure a wifi connection with other devices that also have a WPS button. To use it you press the WPS button on the router then on the device you are trying to get access on and then both will be automatically configured.

I need a password to reach the interneton my ipad...it asks for a cisco password


If your wireless router was setup using the default configuration, the password, also called a security key should be on the bottom of the router. Alternatively you should be able to specify on your ipad that you want to connect using WPS, and your router will have a WPS button on it. Pushing it for 2-3 seconds would allow your ipad to connect without needing the password. You should be able to google "connecting ipad to wifi using WPS" and if necessary include your router model to get specifics about the location of the WPS button on your router.

Does holding the reset button in do anything? If not, might be that the router is simply fried and time to get a new one. If it does react to resetting try just connecting one device to it to see if you can get to the web interface and configure.

Where is wps on Belkin n1 vision?


Before you will be able to use this function, you will have to log into your router and enable WPS push button in the security settings.

Using Wi-Fi Protected Setup
WPS uses WPA2 (described below) for encryption. It does not
provide additional security, but rather, standardizes the method for
securing your wireless network. You may use either the Push Button
Configuration (PBC) method or PIN method to allow a device access to your wireless network. Conceptually, the two methods work as follows:
PBC: Push and hold the WPS button located on the back of your N1
Vision for three seconds. Then, initiate the WPS procedure on the client device within two minutes. Refer to your client's documentation on this procedure. Pushing the PBC button will automatically enable WP

Where is the was button


I'm guessing you mean the WPS button - "Wireless Protected Setup" - As far as I can see from the User Guide this router doesn't have an actual WPS Button - You need to log onto its admin web interface and browse to the WPS setup page - Press the WPS button on your client device (laptop, printer, etc) then Click the WPS button in the router's web interface and let them talk to each other to establish a secure connection - The WPS light on the Front Panel should then light up when connected - You can find a user guide at the following url:

Does my WRT160N have a WPS button and if so, where is it?


The Linksys WRT160N has WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). If you are using WPA-PSK encryption (recommended), then you can easily connect the C4780 to your wireless network using WPS:


1) On the Linksys router, press the WPS button that is top of the case just under the Cisco label. When the LED on the button starts to blink, then the WPS process has started.
