The protocol has been switched to 802.11 and needs to be returned to 802.11b. How can we do this with none of our computers able to talk to the router without internet access?


I assume you mean your router has been switched to 802.11G ONLY traffic and your network cards only support B. Only solutions that come to mind is either try using a ethernet cable to directly connect to the router and then change settings. Or try resetting the router by removing power cable then holding down reset button.. I don't recall but some software revision might have wireless on by default. The router would be named WRT54G by default with no encryption. Keep in mind resetting the router will turn all the settings to default including admin password.

Lost my password


  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password.Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panelWrite down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
For FR314, FR318, and FV318
These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348
See Updating Router Firmware That Uses a Manager Port.

It seems like my password is reset... I tried all possible passwords I could have had but none of them worked... How do I get a new password to access my router?


On most routers, there is a reset button on either the back or the bottom. Unplug the router, push and hold that button for thirty seconds, then keep it pushed while plugging in the router. let it start up, and then it should be reset back to factory defaults. Use the default username and password to enter it and then put the password you want back in it. The default username is usually administrator or admin, and the password is usually password or just blank. If these combos don't work, do a search on the internet for default password for your make and model of router.

On the back of the router there is a button that says Reset use a pen or paperclip to hold that button for 20 seconds and it will reset all of your settings to the factory default settings. and then you will use the generic user name and password. usually User name:admin Password: None or Password
