    Well there should be a "hard reset" button on the router. It will be a small hole approx. the size of a headphone jack for an ipod. you need to stick something (non-metallic) into the hole and depress the button inside for at least 30 seconds. This will reset your routers default settings. You will still possibly have to know the factory default password and username for your particular router. username possibly blank...pass admin. or vice versa. Good luck

Forgot the wep key code.


Hi there,
If you forgot the wep key to your internet your best solution would be to reset your router and restore all of your settings to their default value. There should be a rest hole on the back of the router. simply hold down the reset button and then log back into the router using the default ip address (try either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and the default username and password. Once you do that you will have to go and set all of your values again such as your network name and your new wep password.
Hope this helps!!

Forgot my wep key. How do I get it?


You can sometimes retrieve it from the router settings, but barring that, there really is no easy way to get it.

Note that I said easy. If your router is indeed using WEP, you can sniff the packets coming off it with sniffers and once you have enough packets, then you *might* be able to decode the WEP key code. This usually doesn't work out very well though.

Need wep key code


The wep key is set by the system admin when the router is installed, contact the systen admin to get the wep key.

If you forgot it you have to reset it but logging into the router's setup through a browser by typing its IP address, then going to Wireless Network Security and changing the WEP key.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

I forgot the password I set up for the wireless


Connect to the router typing 192.168.1.1 in the browser window with ID admin and password as admin. Go to Wireless->Security. And there you will find WEP key. The WEO key has to be seen. If it is **** format then just below it you will fing a box saying WEP key in clear. Tick this box and your WEP key will appear in clear. Note it down as it is generally 10 digits long.
