Hold the reset for 20 seconds then release it. Unplug it and hold the reset for another 20 seconds, without letting go of the reset plug the power back in, continue holding the reset for another 20 second. Release the reset and let the router sit for 2 mins. then set it up again. !!!***Warning***!!! This will set the unit to factory settings, it will retain none of you original setting so make sure you back those up as well.

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

SOURCE: belkin wireless router reset password problems

You have to connect(wired) through one of the ports on the back of belkin to a laptop(or PC) physically.And this laptop(orPC) should have the software that came in the CD as part of the router packaging.
Then you open the web browser and and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.This should let you access the router from where you can configure your settings..Network name,password,password for the router itself etc.

You connect from your computer by putting the network IP Address into Internet Explorer. After you reset, you set your own password. Try putting 192.168.1.1 into the browser URL line and press enter.

    I lost my web password


    If you have previously set a password for this router and don't remember it, you can find the reset button (about the size of a pinhole) and press and hold it for 5 seconds. This will reset everything on the router back to the way it was when it came out of the box, including the login password and the wireless network id/password.

    From there, you can reset it according to the manufacturer's instructions and/or the manual that came with the router.

    How to find lost password for access


    It is not likely you will be able to recover the password if the individual who implemented it is unavailable to provide it. Your only alternative is to factory reset the device according to the manual and then put in the necessary settings required. The default username and password for this device is easily found in the users manual for the device, found here:

    I am unable to connect my iphone 4 to my router as i dont know the password, ive tried Administator and leaving it blank are they any other stand ones or will i need to reset the password?


    Putting "admin" often works. Looking under the router for a sticker might reveal a password. Resetting it can be an option, but if it is a newer router, you might be lost because they don't usually have easily recognizable default passwords. They usually, nowadays, have unique passwords that are put onto the bottom of the router. Good luck.

    I'm trying to sign into my Netgear Router to reset my password, because I do not remember it and to set-up a secure connection. However whenever I type in http://routerlogin.net, All I get is information...


    How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password Symptoms:
    • You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
    • You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
    • You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network

    Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.

    If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.

    To view or reset a wireless network password:

    1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
    2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
    3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
      • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
      • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
    If you cannot log into your 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.

    NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!



    If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

    When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
    So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.
    Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router
    Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
    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.
    For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
    To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
    For FR314, FR318, and FV318
    These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
    For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348
    See Updating Router Firmware That Uses a Manager Port.
    This applies to:
    • All NETGEAR devices

    I currently have a belkin wireless g MIMO and want to replace with N1 vision. Will all the set up be lost (password) when I switch to N1 vision. Can I just plug the new one and ready to go? Thanks


    Yes, all the setting and password, WEP encryption password, etc WILL BE LOST. Well they are not actually lost, they remain on the old router until you delete them or reset the router to the factory default.
    I think what you are really looking for is will the setting and passwords transfer automatically(NO)
    So you need to write down the old setting and password if you want to keep them and put them into the new router during set-up.
    Unless you are going to personally keep the old router, for security, reset it to clear out the passwords.The reset procedures is the same for both routers
    Just in case you do not have the new owners manual here is the direct link to Belkins.
