Question about Belkin Basic Wireless Router
If you forgot the password, resetting the router will allow you to access the router's configuration screen again. However, this will reset the router to the factory default settings default, and you will have to reconfigure the router.
Instructions for the router:
From page 12: Reset Button on the back of the router.
This button is used to restart your Router in rare cases when it functions incorrectly. Resetting the Router will preserve your settings. This button may also be used to restore the factory default settings. Please see the Troubleshooting section (page 15) for more information.

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.
If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.
To view or reset a wireless network password:
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password
from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to
factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults,
you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.
NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!
