Cannot find wpa code


You can factory reset the router using the small button on the back, hold it in for 30 seconds with the power on to the router. This will clear all settings from the router including the password, so you will need to set up the router again after the reset.

I forgot my pass word


Pressing and holding the Reset button for 15-20 seconds should reset your router to its original condition, ie., with the factory default logon/password. You'll have to re-enter any changes you may have made to your specifications, but you'll then be able to reset your password.

Hello
On the back of the router is a small button,hold it in with a pen tip or paper clip for 60 sec.
This will reset it to factory defaults.

Then you can log in as admin
password= admin
username= admin
Once in you can make your changes again.

Forgot D-Link 1310 wireless password - how do I retrieve it


What password? Are you referring to the WEP or WPA-PSK password? If yes, I would like to inform you that no one could give you the exact WEP or WPA key. Even if you check the utility of the router.

What you need to do is to reset the router to factory default and then reconfigure the router. That's the only way that you could do in order to set a new password.

Have a good evening!

Forgot network password


Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg http://192.168.1.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck

Forgot Password


If it's the password to login to the adminitration page(GUI) of the router your pertaining to, then the only way to solve it is to reset the router to factory settings(Press and Hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds, release the reset button and wait for the power LED to go solid). Now if it's the WEP or WPA key or encrytion key for you wireless connection, Open the router's Admin page using another computer that is connected to the router or hardwire the same computer to any of the 4 Ethernet(LAN) port on the baack of the router. Open Internet Explorer and enter the router's IP address on the address bar(by default it's 192.168.1.1) then you'll get a pop up windows asking for the router's by default there is no username and the password is "admin".

Unable to setup wireless network


I know exactly what has happened
u did not knew the password for router manager
u reset it
After reset router , it came back to its factory defaults, now the password will come back to its factory defaults ( if u still dont know the factory defaults password, check manual provided to u with this router )
After reseting , as router came back to factory defaults , it also changed the wireless encryption key or WPA password with which u were able to connect earlier to its factory defaults original key and due to that reason u are getting limited or no connectivity coz the WEP or WPA key has changed.
Solution: IF U know the original wireless key or WPA key try to reenter it and see whether it connects or not
if still does not work

Then connect ur PC or laptop with ethernet or LAN CABLE (CAT)
Your internet will start working with the cable
NOW u will be able to open the router manager page
Type the factory defaults password and log in
Then goto the wireless settings page and check what is the WEP key stored in ur router and also try to channels of the router and see wherher it increases the signal strength or not
Once you have got the key from the router manager page
Try to reenter it and then surely it will work.........
Best of luck
