Usually with those , the default is user name : (blank) and password : admin

IF that doesn't work, try unplugging the router and letting it sit for a minute.

IF that doesn't work, on the backplane, there is a small black recessed button. Press it in with a ball point pen, and it should reset your router to factory defaults.

User admin, password admin, do not work on the Dynex router I just bought. These are specified in the manual, as well as the address (192.168.1.1) which seems to be correct. What other user/password values...


If this router is brand new and has not yet been configured, try using "admin" (without the quotes) for the username, and leave the password field blank. Press the "OK" button; you should be directed to a welcome screen. From there, click "Run Wizard" and you should be taken to a screen prompting you to create a new password for the router.

Hi Guest….not sure why this issue is occurring, but this is what I would do:

1. Connect to router via Ethernet cable (not wireless)

2. Try 1234 instead of password

3. Ensure caps lock is off (OK, it’s an old one, but it can happen)

4. If the router came from your ISP, check their website – sometimes they install their own firmware and default password (eg, UK Sky users - try password sky)

5. Reboot your router, then see if it accepts the defaults

6. If you bought the router new, it's fresh out of the box, and you’re setting it up – and the defaults don’t work - contact Netgear

7. If anyone else set up the router, or you bought it second-hand, or you think the password has changed and you don't know the new password- it’s time to consider a hard reset.

This is a last resort, as it will clear all settings and cut off your internet connection, until you set up the router again. A hard reset is only recommended for experienced users (ie if you set up your own router in the first place). However, if this doesn’t restore defaults either, contact Netgear.

Good luck whatever you decide to do.

Forgot password


To ilysurita, cj_mom, top_shutta…
First can I clarify what is meant by a ‘lost password’ …. The original poster here is asking about the password needed to login to the router configuration pages.

If you know the password to login to the router configuration pages, you can still get access to the network key (also known as passphrase, WPA or WEP key, PSK, pre-shared key) – which is the key Windows asks for to connect a new computer to the network. It will be found under a heading like ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Wireless Settings’ within the router configuration pages. For this model, you can find the router configuration pages by typing www.routerlogin.net (or .com) into a web browser, or http://192.168.0.1

If you don’t know the username/password to login to your router, try using the defaults – for this model, they are admin and password.

However, if the router login username/password has been forgotten, the only way to regain access to the router configuration settings is to reset the router, as described in my posting above. I don’t know of any shortcuts to this one. :(

If you have to resort to this, you might want to wait for whoever set up the router to help with this. This is because resetting the router will remove all your settings – password, network key, ISP connection info – so you will lose your internet connection altogether until it is set up again.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend some time and patience, you can have a go yourself.

If you have your original setup CD this may contain a software wizard to walk you through it. If not, you might be able to download a setup wizard from the router manufacturer’s website, along with a quick installation guide (and a manual).

The Netgear site also has very clear troubleshooting and support pages which will help with setup, even if you don’t have any setup software:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v9.asp

Make sure you use a wired connection. Also, print off all the information you need before you begin, as you will not be able to access the internet while you are setting up the router.
Good luck whatever you decide to do

Router Password


try admin and admin again for password. If that is not it try leaving the password box blank. Good luck Are you sure you did not change the password when you set it up the first time. If you did you have no other option than reset.

Router installation


simply connect your laptop to the router using the supplied lan RJ45 cable and then open up your web browser and type in the address bar 192.168.2.1, this will take you to the router password page, just press enter as by default there is no password.

The next page will show all the menus on the left, select connection wizard and enter your isp password, username and settings.
