    I am guessing this is for home wireless network. If it is you can always reset your router depending on the brand/model (on most routers the reset button is on the back) and reset up a new password.

Forgot my network key


You will need to login to your router from another computer or physical network cable, then under wireless security review the key code.

Forgot password of wep of the linksys router


on a computer wired to your router.

1. Open an internet explorer browser.
2. Click on the address bar and type in 192.168.1.1
3. It should ask you for a password. Leave the username empty under password type in admin
4. If that does not work try a password that you would normally use as you might have changed it.
5. Inside the page. Go to the wireless tab. Under the word wireless you will see basic wireless to the right is wireless security. Click on wireless security.
6. Under wireless security you can see your WEP key.


I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.

I have a netgear w602 but no installation cd to install it on computer and im stuck lol


You really don't need to install anything on the computer for that router, it has it's own controls built in.
You need to be able to connect into it, to configure it.
So for example, have the router on, have your laptop on.
Look to see if your computer "finds" a wireless network (you'll get a info notice in the lower right corner).

One question I forgot to ask
Do you have a wireless network card in your computer?
The router is a transmission station, you need a wireless NIC to be able to connect to it.

How do I get the key for my wireless router?


Hi, if its a wireless router you purchased from the store by default it is an open network (meaning it has no key) if you set a key and forgot it you can clear it by finding the reset hole and sticking a paper clip in there for about 30-60seconds.

Now if you got the wireless router from you broadband (DSL/CABLE) provider look underneath for a sticker. It will tell you the SSID and the key (usually WEP or WPA).

hmmm..well...forgetting the password....checks his notes..ahhh..here it is..

you'll need to create another node, name it something different, point it at your wireless hub, and then leave the WEP off of it..

other than that, you'll need some code from your wireless router guys to reset it...

Hope you find a solution

Forgot the password/code/security to let somebody else onto my linksys home wireless network. Don't remember how to do any of it or retrieve the security code to access the secure wireless network


Hi,

The easiest would be to reset the router using the small recessed button at the back of the unit. Performing a full hard reset (pressing reset more than 10 seconds) would clear the password. Of course, this action would also clear all other configurations and settings reverting the unit back to factory default.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
