How I reset my router to the old password? And how can I use it without Ethernet cable

There is a wide range of help from here:-
but generally resetting to the old password requires access to the router settings. It is often easier to go back to the original settings by using the reset button.
To use the router without the Ethernet cable, you need to set up the wireless settings within the router and then connect using your computer's wireless connection.
If your computer does not have wireless capability, be it laptop or desktop, then you will not be able to connect to the router without an ethernet cable.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

If your router does not have the default password on the back/bottom (usually located on a serial sticker), then the next easiest thing to do is, assuming that you have a patch/straight-through rj45(ethernet) cable, like one that you may have used to connect your modem to your computer, and plug one end into your NIC card, and the other into an ethernet port on your router. After you do this, use your computer's internet browser to get on the router's configuration page. To do this, go to your address bar and type in your router's IP Address, which, if using a linksys, is by default (another way to find it is to go to command prompt on your computer, and type in the command "ipconfig" and looking at the default gateway). After entering the router's IP address, a window should pop up asking for a username and password, which, once again by default, are "admin", "admin", or "admin", "password". This should bring you to the configuration page for the router. From here, look for wireless security, and under that header, you should find your WPA settings and passkey. Change it to your liking, and when finished MAKE SURE TO CLICK SAVE SETTINGS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE OR THEY WILL NOT SAVE!!!

Hi the username and password for the router has been changed while the previous configuration.If you can call your service providor they should be able to provide the same.There are other some common usernames and passwords which you can try.
*******Alternatively you can also try to reset the router to its default settings by pressing the reset button at the back of the router(however this should be the last step of action).

Connecting modem via ethernet cable

I'm not an expert in window based units but since it worked with Vista OS and not with XP. Sounds like you might try re-installing XP again. Take note on any windows that refer to the ethernet port during installation. It is likely you might of hit "next" without reading all the text. I know I have in the past. I changed over to mac and I know longer have any problems only at work but give then I give it to the IT Dept and wait and wait and wait.
