Turn the router off.
Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Push that end into the hole in the back of the router,
and hold it in for 30 seconds.
Turn the router on, and see if it has been reset to its "factory" settings, including the default ID/password.

Hi i've forgotten the password i set for my router about 18 months ago, so i can access wifi on my ipod touch, i've tried to reset and restore to factory settings using the button on the back,...


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

Forgot the password


If you have forgotten the password and haven't set it, try using no password. The default password is blank and the default username is Admin. If this does not work and you have no way of guessing your password, you will need to reset your router. This should only be done if you know your broadband username and password as it will wipe to blank if you reset and you will need to type them in again.

I'm trying to use my Computer without the Ethernet Cord(wireless) I'm having trouble finding the original netgear router login page where it ask me for my ssid and password. Also, i't been so...


If you've forgotten the password then best thing to do is to reset the router so it clears it. You do that usually by pressing a button on the router, else there will be a small hole that you insert a pin in to reset it.

Once it is reset you will have to go through all the setup/config again. To connect to the router go to your browser window and type in the ip # for the router, typically 192.168.***.*** , most have 1.0 or 1.1 for the last two numbers.

If your not sure what your netgear uses than search google for the netgear site, then go to support or download and put in the exact model number for the netgear and download the manual again for instructions.

I can'n access the 192.168.254.1 i really dont know the username and the passwordfor my huawei bm662i wimax cpe.


Hi,
The router setup page should be 192.168.1.1
You should be able to access it if you use that address. If you are unsure about your router's ip address, please check my tips and tricks about how to find it out. Click here.
Hope this helps.

I ahve forgotten my forgotten netgear password on WGR614 router. Please advise Thanks Tony


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.

or

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

Hi, how to reset smcwbr14-g2 password? I forgot username and password thanks


Hi ,
I got your issue, Inorder to reset the username and password to the default setting the only way is to reset the router , look on the router you will have a pin hole button, push that reset button for 10 -20 sec. Then you can login to the router using username 'smcadmin', password - 'admin' or 'blank'.

Thanks & Regards,
Prema.

I have lost my password for D-Link DI-524 router? How can I reset the admin and user passwords without changing all other connection settings? Thanks.

Unfortantly if you have forgotten the password to the router there is not any way to reset it with out resetting the router.

If you need help resetting the router let me know.

Forgot password


hi there,
if you have forgotten your password then the best thing to do is to reset your router. then when you use the driver to set up the router you can put in a new password. The 'reset' button can be found at the back or below the router. use something sharp and small to press on it for at least 5 seconds. let me know if it works

Forgot my password


Hi,

Most of the NETGEAR devices have the following default username and password except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches:
  • Username is always admin
  • Password is password or (for older devices) 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  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 configuration 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.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Password retrieval


There?s not much you can do. Try to put the router?s default password which is ?admin? (lower case) and then copy the settings so you can reconstruct them after the reset of the router. Hope it works good luck.
