I forgot my password and so reset the router by putting the paper clip wire in the little hole. All went well, but I can not seem to work out how to reset a new password. What am I not doing or should be doing?

Well I don't necessarily have enough information to specify what your problem is, I'm considering that you are either referring to your security password, or the password to change the router settings. So, I'll just answer how to work around all three of them.

  • Wireless security password: By default, this setting should be off, and if you do a factory setting reboot (by pressing down AND holding the reset button for more than 10 seconds) it should turn off by itself, thus not requiring you to need it anymore.
  • Router Administrator's password: By default, there is in fact no password, so when you want to log in, all you need to do is press the login button, there is no need for you to type anything in to gain access to your router settings.
If this helped, please give me a thumbs up! And if I didn't answer what you were looking for, please leave a comment and I'll check to see if there's anything I can do!

Forgot my password


Well, you can reset the router to factory defaults, then check the manufacturers website to find out the default username and password.

WARNING: You will need to reconfigure the router after resetting. If you don't know how to configure it, don't reset it.

Look on the back of your router, and you should see a "reset" button. Sometimes, all you'll see is a little hole. Put a paper clip in the hole to push the button inside.

Hold the button down for 10 or 20 seconds or so, and the router should start flashing. After maybe a minute, it will be back up and running, and you can use the default login.

Forgot what the password was for my router.how can i find out what it was?


The default username/password combination for this model is:
username: admin
password: (empty)

If you have changed the password and the default settings won't log you in, then you have to reset your router to factory default. There is no way of retrieving the password otherwise.
Note: you will loose all personal settings during this step!

To reset the router:
1. Put a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset
2. Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.
3. The router will reboot and you will be able to log in with the default credentials.

I forgot my password


If you have changed the default password to your own password and you forgot the password. You can always reset the router back to its original manufacture setting. However, you will lose your current router setting. So do it with your own risk. Reset location should be a small hole either on back or on the side of router. You can use a paper clip to push in to reset it. Good luck

How to find forgot user name and pssword inmy router


Take a Norwegian paper-clip and straighten one end.
Turn the router off.
Push that end into the small hole in the back of the router, until you feel resistance.
Push against the resistance for 30 seconds, and release.
This will reset the router to its "factory" settings, including the default ID/password.
Then, reconfigure the router, both the "wired" and "wireless" settings.

Forgot my password how do I re set it


Hi friend,
As you have mentioned that you have forgot the password for the router, so you can reset the router to factory settings by pressing the "RESET" button on the back of the router. It is a very samll button and you need a paper clip to press it.
What you need to do is, you need to take the paper clip, put it in a small hole on the back of the router and press and hold the button for atleast 30 seconds.
Once you release the button, the router will come back to its factory settings.
NOTE: If you will reset the router, all the settings on the router for Ethernet and the Wireless will be lost and the router needs to be reconfigured.
