The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

How do I retrieve my password?

Passwords are only known by the person who did put it in.
But most routers and wireless access point, have a possibility to reset the device and then the standard admin password will become active again. For that you can look into the manual, or even on the device itself, where it says how to reset the device and what will be the default admin pass word. Be aware, after that you have to reinstall the whole device, so if you don't have the manual at hand or not enough knowledge, please leave it as it is, if you still need the device, till someone can help you.

Tip to retrieve if you forget the wireless key of your router

Welcome to fixya

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

Click the below link

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 > 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 WPA Preshared key

Internet connection

I assume you are trying to connect to a wifi signal. You will want to get someone who is familiar with logging into a router, and have them log into yours and retrieve your wireless password.

Cannot remember my w-f password

If you lose or forget your password, you can usually get it from your modem or your Internet service provider.
  • 1 Look on your modem. This is the box that your Internet service provider gave you when your Internet service was installed. Some Internet Service providers put your wireless password directly on the box along with your user-name. A modem may or may not be separate from a wireless router, which sends out the wireless signals. If you have two boxes and are unsure which is which, look at both.
  • 2 Call your Internet service provider if you cannot find a password on the modem. You can also try online customer service through your service provider's website if you are able to get Internet access apart from your wireless connection.

  • 3 Talk to a customer service representive and ask to retrieve your password. You may be required to change it. Be prepared to provide security information that the service provider has on file, such as your Social Security number, phone number, address or another personal security question.

    I need to retrieve my password on the Speedstream 6520 Router so I can log in wireless with my iphone.

    not possible to retrieve a password! that's why they are secure... if you have your ISP ADSL setup details you can reset the router to factory default and reprogram it from scratch, or call their help desk BEFORE you do it and ask them to email you the connection details before you start. then WRITE the password on a label and stick it to the router.

    Someone changed the password/deleted my account

    When you originally signed up for the account, I'm sure you had to give a secondary email address to confirm your account. If you click on "lost password", they will resend the last password you had to the secondary address.
