Hi pooh -The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router. If these don't work and you can't remember what you had them at before, you'll have to reset the router to factory defaults.

  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
  10. You're in.
If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. Otherwise please don't rate. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Netgear wireless router requiring a username and password


All routers when connecting to them for settings, will require a username and password, this is so nobody unauthorized can get into your router and change your settings.

1st, check the bottom of your router. Usually it will tell you what the Username and Password is.

If you cannot find this, then check the following site;
http://www.routerpasswords.com/
Click on the drop-down menu, and select Netgear.
On the bottom of your router, there should be a model number, or something indicating the model. Look for that in the list provided, and you should have your answer.

My iPad is asking for password for NetGear 95 I don't know it


Is the Netgear 95 your wifi router? If it is go to settings/wifi click in the Netgear 95 then click the little "i" on the right for more options. If you have an option to "forget this" click it. Do a hard reboot of your iPad (holding down home and lock button) till it restarts. Once it powers up go back to setting/wifi and try again to connect. That's how I got it to work on my iPhone and iPad when encountering the issue.

If that doesn't work restart your router. Last resort is to change the password but again I've never had to do that. The steps above usually did the trick.

Please reset your router and enter gain using the default username and password.
The default username and password for Netgear routers are admin and 1234 respectively.

1. Open your web browser and type in your router's IP address. The default IP address for Netgear routers is http://192.168.2.1.
2. Enter your username and password once prompted by your web browser. The default username and password for Netgear routers are admin and 1234 respectively.
3. Select "Set Password" from the left hand navigation menu on the router's manager menu.
4. Type in the old password, which should be 1234 if it is set to default and then type your new password twice.
5. Click "Apply" and the new password will take effect immediately.

Find wep key for netgear router


for you to get the WEP key, you need to make sure that you are connected to the netgear router.
try to connect your laptop to the router via the ethernet cable. after securing this, open a browser, then type 192.168.1.1 or www.routerlogin.net on the address bar. it would ask you for a username and password. username is " admin" and password is " password " make sure that its in lowercase. then it
would take you now to the netgear setup wizard. on the left side of that screen you would see WIRELESS SETTINGS under set up. click on it. and scroll down to security options, there you would see your WEP key. you can also configure it if you want.

Hi,
Since you reset the router, the username and password were set back to its default values as well. For Netgear, the username and password is: Username = admin Password = password

You can try resetting your netgear router to default settings. the reset is button located on the rear panel of your gateway to reset all settings to their factory defaults.

Here's the router default configurations settings:


User login URL: http://192.168.1.1
User name (case sensitive): admin or superuser
Login Password (case sensitive): password

You can also check and download your router manual & user guides here:

Good luck,

Wireless connection


You need to access the routers configureation page. You can do this by opening your web browser and typing the default gateway into your address bar. For netgear this is normally 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. To check this you can launch the command prompt and type "ipconfig/all" this will bring up a lot of information including the default gateway. Upon entering this address into your browser you will be prompted for a username & password. The username is "admin" The password will be either "admin" or "password". Once you in just click the "wireless settings" tab on the left of the screen where your wireless key will be revealed to you. Don't forget to rate me,

Forgot password


To ilysurita, cj_mom, top_shutta…
First can I clarify what is meant by a ‘lost password’ …. The original poster here is asking about the password needed to login to the router configuration pages.

If you know the password to login to the router configuration pages, you can still get access to the network key (also known as passphrase, WPA or WEP key, PSK, pre-shared key) – which is the key Windows asks for to connect a new computer to the network. It will be found under a heading like ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Wireless Settings’ within the router configuration pages. For this model, you can find the router configuration pages by typing www.routerlogin.net (or .com) into a web browser, or http://192.168.0.1

If you don’t know the username/password to login to your router, try using the defaults – for this model, they are admin and password.

However, if the router login username/password has been forgotten, the only way to regain access to the router configuration settings is to reset the router, as described in my posting above. I don’t know of any shortcuts to this one. :(

If you have to resort to this, you might want to wait for whoever set up the router to help with this. This is because resetting the router will remove all your settings – password, network key, ISP connection info – so you will lose your internet connection altogether until it is set up again.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend some time and patience, you can have a go yourself.

If you have your original setup CD this may contain a software wizard to walk you through it. If not, you might be able to download a setup wizard from the router manufacturer’s website, along with a quick installation guide (and a manual).

The Netgear site also has very clear troubleshooting and support pages which will help with setup, even if you don’t have any setup software:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v9.asp

Make sure you use a wired connection. Also, print off all the information you need before you begin, as you will not be able to access the internet while you are setting up the router.
Good luck whatever you decide to do
