Do a factory reset, you don't say if this is your router or the printer that needs the password, either way look for a way to reset to factory default, on a router it is usually a small pushbutton on the back or bottom (use a ballpoint pen to push the button). on the printer, I can't tell you since I don't know what model it is but this is the only way I know to get back to a start point where you can again put in a new password and etc.

My Kobo Arc 32, asked for a password, when I tried to try the WiFi. I don't remember setting a password. So, now it's asking for an guest password.


It is not the Kobo that has set the password, rather the router for the wifi that you are trying to connect to. You just need to know the password for the router to let you connect. If a router has no wifi password, it is considered unsecured and ANYONE can access it. So most all routers use password protection. If it is YOUR wifi system, and you no longer know the password, you can change it if you access the router setup for wireless and change the password. Be advised, however, that all devices that connect to the wifi will need to change their passwords as well or not be connected. If it is not your wifi you are trying to connect to, then you need to obtain the wifi password from that wifi system's administrator.

I am trying to connect my iPhone 5 S to my wireless network and have forgotten my password. HELP. To connect to wi-fi I need a password and can not remember the password as this router was set up years ago


Firstly log into your router from your computer. If you don't know the username and password, try the default one which is Username: admin Password: Admin. Check under Wireless setting and you will see the current password listed there. You can change it to a new one if required. Just remember to save after you've done any changes.

Most likely you don't. But, you can create a new one if you know the password to the router. Most Netgear products use admin as the user name and, by default, password as the password. Out of the box, the address of an N300 is 192.168.1.1 If you open a browser on a WIRED connection and type in that address, it will open a box to log into the Netgear. If you can't remember THAT password, then you only recourse is to reset the router and start over.

Once you log into the router there's a tab down the left side that says Wireless Settings. In it, you will have a list of the wireless security and, if WEP the passphrase will be displayed. For any other type of security, just pick a new one. Instructions are on the right side of the screen if you need help.

I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.
