For that particular Netgear router, if you have NOT changed the password, the default username is "admin" and the default password is "password" (or "1234" if it is an older router).

If this doesn't work, you will have to do a reset of the router which will put its settings back to the factory defaults. On the back of the router, you will find a recessed reset button that you will have to press for about 10 seconds until the TEST light blinks (use a straightened paper clip).

If you do not have the manuals that came with your router, this website has the setup and user manuals for your device, but you will first have to determine the version by looking at the model # on the bottom of the router:

Hope this helps!

Just hold the restart button for more than 1 minute, at least 2 minutes. The restart button is hidden in a little hole, and usually is near to the power conector. Then the wireless will take the factory defaults. Netgear use to set as default password 1234, in other brands like encore is just admin as the user name, but to be sure download the users manuall at netgears web page.

I hope this easy way help you.

Forgotten password

The password is the wireless router's encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a new lap top which is recognising the wireless network and then asking for a network security key. How do I find this?

The network security key is essentially a password that was setup to control access to your network. Presumably, when you set it up you gave it a password that you could remember, but not so obvious that people could easily guess. If you've forgotten or lost the password, you can reset the router by using a paperclip and holding the reset button for about 10-15 seconds. Once you reset the router, it will be restored to its original factory defaults and you can then setup again your wireless networking.

Router Password forgotten

Pam, there is no way to retrieve just the password. You have to reset/reconfigure the router. Have you done router setups before? If not, I suggest you get someone to help you. If you want to try anyway, then have the printed manual next to you as you step through the sequence. Make sure you connect a PC to the router using an ethernet cable & confirm that the PC connects to the router. Admin is the user id. The factory default password is often "password" or "admin", but check on the manufacturer's site to be sure. Let me know if you have questions about any part of this.

Password recovery isn't really possible. Pushing the rest button in the back for a few seconds will reset the router to factory defaults. You will need to reset all the wireless security and such so best to do this with a pc connected directly to it. Default IP for it if you have changed it is

Netgear range max cant be found by ps3 please help

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing or in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

Wifi password

This is not a step-by-step but you should be able to do it any way...
Login to router as admin then go to wireless, then go to the wireless security, there you should be able to enable the security as well as selecting the encryption type, select WPA personal select TKIP and give it a password. Hope it helps
