Most of these devices have a hardware switch to perform a RESET. You didn't include a manufacturer or model, so it'll be up to you to locate this switch. Typically, it is located in a recessed area (so it won't be activated accidentally) and must be held 10 - 30 seconds (again, depending on brand / model / etc.) where upon the device will reboot and be reset to factory defaults.

Factory defaults may conflict with other equipment on the network, so it may be best to disconnect the router from everything except for the local computer before the reset switch is activated. You'll have to reboot your computer (or reset your computer's IP address) after the reset of the router. You'll need to know the factory default IP address, username and password of the router - which is available from the manufacturer for that particular model. After that is obtained, login to the router by accessing the the default IP address in your web browser.

Good luck!

Need to reset password

To reset your VersaLink 327W gateway to the factory settings:
Hold the reset button on the back panel of the VersaLink gateway for 30 seconds.
•All your settings will be lost including network encryption information,
MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered.
•The gateway user name and password will revert to the default of Admin as the user name
and Password as the password.
•You will need your user name or password to reconfigure the unit..

Your VersaLink 327W gateway is now using the default settings for the network
configuration. This includes the default SSID and network encryption key.
You must re-configure your VersaLink gateway to match your previous settings
that were assigned to all other devices on your wireless network. Otherwise,
no other network devices will be recognized.

I have lost my network security key. My router is a Netgear

If you have lost it for good your best bet is to reset your router to its defaults and then set a new one. You should find a button, usually red, on the back of the router. Press that for about 30 seconds or until you see the lights cycle. The router will now be returned to its defaults and you will be able to log into it using the default credentials and set it back up. Good luck.

Does a 10 second reset on a Netgear router reset everything. Even the password on the network and so on?

it should only set the password on the router

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.


if there a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

Can't find wireless network

The router probably defaulted back to its factory settings. Use your manual and reset your router back up. It may be as simple as renaming your router.

Password problem. I can not loggin to my acer 5315 laptop.

Try this, open the other account. Go into control panel, User Accounts, then you should see all of the accounts. You can't change or delete the password on the account you are talking about because you have to know the other password to do'll have to delete the account or rename it if possible. If none of that can be done then I'll give you a website that you can download a windows password recovery program.
