If your router is not accepting your password, you are most likely typing either the username or password in incorrectly. You may also try the default username and password, which should be "admin" for the username and either "password" or "1234" for the password.

If those do not work, you will need to do a factory reset on the router to reset the settings. This will reset the username and password back to "admin" for the username and "password" or "1234" for the password. You can do this by using the end of a pen or something similar and pressing the reset button in the hole that says "Reset" located on the back of the router. Hold this button for 10 seconds and release.

Once this happens, you will have to log in using the default credentials and set up your router again.

Well, there are two possibilities: 1) You don't remember your password correctly 2) Some electronic failure messed up your password settings I recommend you to reset your router and reconfigure it, first turn off your router then reset your router by using a small pin or tooth pick and putting it in a small hole in the back of the router push just a little the reset button hiding in the hole for about 5 seconds and turn your router back on, the use default username and password to log into the router config, set up a new password and you're done. Have a nice day :)

You need to ask Lenovo support why it does this, as it is not normal.

Are you sure it is not asking for the password number?

This you need to get from the router as it depends on the protocol used. If it is your router you should already have the password.

Resetting WEP Password on Netgear WGT624


If you hold the reset pin in for more than ten seconds(I always count to 15) it will do a Factory reset...this will set all back to factory specs

Then you can set a new wep as well as an admin password

If your router wont accept your password, you can simply reset the router. Look for a reset button at the back of the router. Press and hold it down for 20 seconds, then unplug the power cable. Wait for 30 seconds then plug it back in. That should clear the password and will let you connect to the internet.
