If you want to obtain the password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.
If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.
They were set when the router was first installed. If you have lost them then reset the router and it will return to the default ones: the user is - admin - , no login password and no security key. You must set them all again and this time put them on a label and attach it to the bottom of the router
Goto any pc on your network and look for your gateway IP address. Once you have this you may type it into a browser. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password for this device. Once you get in you can click wirelss tab and goto security. There you should see all your wireless keys. If you can not access the unit please reset your router back to factory at what point you will then need to create a new key and associated that with all your wireless network devices.

go to the wireless access point admin settings (not on your wireless adapter on your laptop). then check wireless security settings. if you see something there such as security key, that is the security key that you need to set up on your laptop. if security key is not visible, try to see if there is an option there which says unmask to show the security key, then copy it to your laptop. if all else fails, change the security key in the wireless access point and change all the wireless adapters that connect to it accordingly to the new security key you set it up.
There are 2 passwords, but actually one is a key. If you've lost the router password, you will probably have to reset the router. If you've lost the key, you can get it from the web menu if the security was WEP. If it's WPA, you might have to generate new keys.
Try this first. Open up IE and go to 192.168.1.1 If the box opens asking for username and password, try admin and password. If it opens up a Netgear screen, look down the left tab to Wireless Settings.
If your security is WEP, the key is displayed on that screen.
If this doesn't work, post back and I'll try to help you either login or reset the router.
You will have to do a factory reset on the router. These is a small reset button on the back (you have to press is with a pen). Hold down the reset button while unpluging and pluging back in the router. This will reset the security settings and allow you to start over from scratch.
On the back of your router there is a reset button, hold it down for 3o seconds or so, this will reset the router back to factory settings, the default user name and password would be admin, note that sometimes with the belkin you only need the user name and not the password. Usually you need admin/admin though.
The default IP address to access the router when its reset is 192.168.2.1
