Welcome to Fixya

Routers has two password. First is the admin user interface password. Second is the wireless password. If you are asking for the wireless password, just connect the computer to the router using a regular LAN cable then access its admin site. Some routers admin site is or (depends on the router). Go to wireless security menu once you are inside the router homepage. You will see the password once you are inside the wireless security. You may also change the wireless password there.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How to retrieve my password

If you mean by retrieve, find out what it is, that will required you remembering it as there is no retrieval method available. If there were, it would make the password rather useless, don't you think?
You will need to reset the router to factory defaults using the reset button to clear out the forgotten password. Connect your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable. Open a browser. Login using the default IP, user id and password for the router. Assign new password, then save and re-login with new password. Then reconfigure router to get things back to normal as all settings were reset during factory reset process.

Cannot find the password to my router

Not quite clear as to your problem. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?

Those are two separate passwords, and you may be able to retrieve them both. The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.

If the passwords are stored, you should be able to retrieve them by installing some additional software.

For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:

If you can't retrieve those passwords from your computer, you may need to reset the router to its factory default, and then reinstall/reconfigure the unit. There is a "reset" button on the back of the router unit. For details on resetting the router, see the owner's manual (pp. 3 and 13):

We are trying to connect our Nintendo DSI to our router but we cannot remember our password for our wireless router. Is there a way to retrieve our password or reset it for our wireless router

hi vuffer20

unfortunately there is no way to retrieve the password if you don't have a record of it. you can just reset your router to its default factory state. depending on your router model, most routers have a reset button found on the back of the router its sort of like inside a pin hole try looking for the reset button.

please let me know
hope this helps

Retrieve a password

There is not way to retrieve a lost password on a router, you will need to reset the router and set it up again. If you need help doing that, you will need to supply me with the make/model of the router.

Retrieve password

Generally, you can not retrieve a lost password from a router. You will likely be able to RESET the router to factory condition by pressing / pressing & holding a reset button on the router itself.

You should check the router documentation or manufacturer's web page to see exactly how a reset is done on your particular model router, and learn what the default username and password combination is once reset.

How can I retrieve my security key for my router?

You do not need to retrieve the password if you cannot remember. Just reset your router and use (admin) for user name and password. To reset your router you can see a small hole in your router which is labeled reset. Use a pin and insert it to the hole and push.

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.
