Question about TP-LINK TL-WR642G Router

1 Answer

I have a tp link TLWR642G router and i can't reset password. I try to do this from the reset button but its useless in any way. The problem is that it cannot accept admin as password. Is there any change that the telephone company changed the default password? Any idea how to solve it?

Most likely the telephone company would not have reset your router, unless they provided it to you.
See this article: http://www.tplink.com/en/support/viewArticle.aspx?id=83

Make sure you are holding the reset button down long enough that it reboots itself and see if that helps. I have come across several times, where people have not held the button down long enough.

Good Luck

How i reset to factory defaults without passwords?


That depends upon the brand of the router. It would be wise to google for the particular brand.

There often are software means to perform a reset but here are the hardware means.

For Netgear:

  1. Press and hold the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons until the Power LED blinks red (about 6 seconds).
  2. Release the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons and wait for the router to reboot.
For Linksys:

1. Press the red reset button on the back.
2. Unplug it from power for 30 seconds. Plug the power back in.

For Belkin:

1. Find the reset button (depends on the model).
2. Depress the reset button for 15 seconds.
3. Wait one minute for the router to restart.

Here is a tutorial for Cisco routers:

Here is one for TP-Link:

For D-Link:

Push a paperclip into the hole marked reset on the back and keep it depressed for 10 seconds.

The default user name is usually admin and there is no password (password is blank).

Clear password router


Try pushing the button for 10 seconds or more, because 5 seconds would be for wps or emergency firmware reload(like for a corrupted firmware).

Use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the AP's power. Second, press and hold the default Reset button then turn on the AP's power, until the system LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the AP to reboot.


Reset the factory defaults.

I forget user name and password


These are the default settings:

When the login window appears, set the user name to Admin and leave the password box empty. If this doesn't work, you may also try admin for both username and password (all small letters).

If the default doesn't work, you may reset the password by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. This will bring the router to factory default settings (including all the configurations set on the router).

Hope this helps.
