Hello,
Unfortunately the only solution is to reset the router to factory default and then enter with the default user name and password.

Before you decide to proceed be aware that you will also reset all the other settings.

For your model the default user is admin and the default password is admin

Best regards

In case you have already change the password and you can't remember it, the only way is to reset the router using the proper button. This will force the router to start up with the default settings. After this you have to make any other settings manually.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

You will need to reset the router and then set it up from the beginning again
there is a reset button at the back press and hold it for 30 seconds and it will wipe the router clean, like when you first got it

I Forgot password for wifi and I need to get it back


Wire in a cable with the router from ur laptop/desktop. Check the default gateway of the connection. Then put the ip address in the explorer window and try to log in to the router with the username and password. If you remember the credentials then login and under security settings or wireless security you will see the password. But if u forget the credentials then u have to reset the router and reconfigure the wifi router again with a new password.

keep me posted

Forgot my password


Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > security

On this screen you can see the wireless key
If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is Preshared key

Thanks

I forgot the password and username,and i want to change the security password of my router what shall i do?


If you have forgotten the router's password then you have to reset the router to factory default to access the interface again. Then you can use the router's default user name and password, that is admin and admin (or username: " " (leave it blank) and password: admin (all in lower case)

You can find the default passwords on the following website;

http://www.routerpasswords.com/index.asp

Once you have logged in to the router console, you can set new security password

Forgot my securty key for zyxel p66ohw


Hello,
Log on to the router by typing the IP address into a web browser. This will log you into the router.
Once logged in you can select the "security" section and find your security key.
If you no longer have the password to log in you will need to reset the router. You can reset it by pressing a pin inot the pin hole on the back of the router near the AC adapter plug.
Thanks

Forgot my password


If you forgot your wireless password you can log into the web interface and click wireless, then wireless security. If you forgot the router password, the best solution, and this goes for all routers is to locate the reset button (usually a small pin hole on the back of the router). Unplug the router from the power supply and press and hold in the reset button with a paperclip or pen tip. While holding the reset button, plug the power back into the rear of the router and continue holding for 10-15 seconds then release. This ensures that the router is reset to factory defaults and then you can login with default username and password. Hint: usually admin is the username and the password is left blank.

Lost signal between pc and i phone.


You have to find the router's IP address and log into the router. It would be something like 172.0.0.x. Since you forgot the router password, your going to have to press the reset button on the router itself to reset the router to factory settings. Check the user manual if you don't know where the reset button is. After that, your going to have to reset the password on the router. The usual default router username and password are "user" for username and "password" for the password. Make sure you make a more secure username and password for the router log in and router wireless security. If you need more help, write me back.

Forgot my password


There will be a "reset" button somewhere on the back of the router ...no 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.
