    So I have the Netgear WGR614v7 and it's connected to my pc and I also have a laptop connected to it. But i just bought a new laptop and I seem to have lost the password and maybe even my lgin name. I have no clue what it is and i can't find a way to get my new laptop connected. But my other laptop connects to it just fine and my pc doesn't seem to have any problems either.

Have you tried admin and password? The defaults if you haven't changed them.

Or if you did.

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 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.

If you have registered your Netgear router you do not need to reset the router. I had the same problem, bought a new laptop and couldn't remember the password. I rang the technical support number that was on the box, and they were able to help me find the password when I gave them the serial number on the bottom of the box.

How can I find out what my username is and password is so I can login to nufollow

Your router came with 'default' admin account name and password. Use the manual to find them and log on to the router. Find the manual on the net if you don't have it. You can then reset the router to the default settings (see - and use the manual's information to log on to the router.

Forgot my password for wireless router 660hdt password for zyxel 660hd

There are two different things. One is the Login/ Password to log in to the router user interface for configuration. Second is the Network Key, which you have to provide to get access to the internet. If you have forgotton the Network Key and know the login/ password, you can log on to the router settings and reset the Network Key.
In case you have forgotten the login/ password of the router,
You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. It may be a push button or else use a paper pin to press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please not that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN
. Configuration may be tricky sometimes and you have to secure the network/ router.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I can not log onto my zoom router.....forgot my pass key for network need to add laptop

1. You will have to reset the router to factory default and run the setup wizard using your set up CD and create a new key.
Set up your laptop on the router using either the MAC address or a new password key.

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Forgot my password

There will be a "reset" button somewhere on the back of the router doubt a small hole you need to stick a straightened out paper clip into. Press the rest button and the router will go back to factory settings. Netgear usually use the user name "admin" and the password "1234" to log into routers for default. Any WEP/WPA settings you has set on the router will be gone too, so you need to go back in and set up your security again.
