If you forget the username or password, or if the configuration becomes really messed up, you can always clear all the non-volitile parameters by doing a 'factory reset'. To do this, with the router already fully booted, press and hold the reset button for 5~6 seconds and release. The router will boot back up and answer to 192.168.1.1 just as if it had just been flashed with DD-WRT.

How do i set a password


Router's password could mean 2 things. First password for you to open router's configuration page or password for you to connect wireless to your router.

Configuration's password:
-Logon to your router configuration page
-Please to the TOOLS and ADMIN Tab. You there you can change the admin user name and password. If you do not have the user name and password, please check for the default user name and password on the router's manual. If default user name and password won't work reset the router. Press and hold down the reset button or pinhole on the back of the router for 10 seconds. Then re-enter user name and password again. It should work this time.

Wireless Security Password:

-Logon to your router configuration page
-Under SETUP and Wireless Settings tab you will get an option to change the wireless password

Forgot login password


Overview If you have forgotten your Linksys password, you have a couple of options. You can try to use the default settings to log into the router settings and change your password, or you can simply reset the router and set it up again. Either way, you will need to create a new password to use in the future. Read on to learn what to do about a lost Linksys router password.
Try the Default You can try to log in to the Linksys setup page and create a new router password using the default user name and password. This will only work if you did not change the default password when you originally set up your router.

Open a web browser window, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Do not include any prefixes, such as http:// or www. Press Enter or click Go. A dialog box will open prompting you for a user name and password. Try leaving both fields blank and clicking OK. If this does not give you access, type admin into the User Name box and Password into the Password box. Click OK again. If you succeed, you can configure your router settings again and create a new password. Read the first article in this series, Configuring a Linksys Router Settings, to learn how to do so.
Reset the Router
If you are unable to log in to the Linksys router setup page using the default user name and password, you do have another option to solve your lost Linksys router password problem, which is to reset your router. 3d1cb9ca10deccfc3b6a854cda8b29a7cd240d6d_small.jpg

Look for a small Reset button on the back, front or the bottom of your Linksys router. The location of the button depends on the router model, so look carefully. As a precaution the buttons are small and inconspicuous, so that users do not accidentally reset their routers.
Once you have located the Reset button, press and hold it for at least ten seconds. You may need to use something with a small point, such as the end of a paperclip or a pencil tip to depress the button. Release the button and wait for the router to start back up. This will restore the router to its initial factory settings as it was when you first set it up. You will need to configure it again and choose a new password. Refer to the first article in this series for instructions on how to do so.

Can't find password for my router. tried: user


You'll find the manual on the CD as well. It answers many of your questions...

Default password is "admin" (without the quotes, all lowercase) unless you have changed it with the configuration program on the CD. Leave the username field empty.

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router


heres the online installation manual http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-ug/index.html
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

How do I put a password on my d-link 300 Dir Router


You need to access your router's web configuration interface. To do this, you need to connect a computer directly to your router and visit http://192.168.0.1 using any web browser.

When prompted for a credentials:
user name = admin
password = <blank> leave blank

When you successfully access the interface, you can set an admin password so that not everyone can access the administration page.

How do i locate my network security key / wireless router being used


Well, if you never set one, then it would be blank. If you forgot to write it down or lost the password, the simplest way to get the router password is to log into the router configuration, by typing the gateway into the address bar of your web browser (if you don't know the gateway open up command prompt (start --> run -->cmd --> press "enter") then type in "ipconfig /all" (no quotes) and scroll down until u see "default gateway: 192.168.something.something). Then log into your router with the user-name and password you used to set it up (the default user-names and passwords can be found here, for linksys it is usually a blank username and then "admin" (without quotes) as a password). Click on the wireless tab and then look through the pages for allt he tabs until u find the password (should be on either basic wireless setting or wireless security).

Good luck, message me if you have any questions/problems

Portable devices recognize router but cannot connect


Try to change the wireless security to WPA-PSK(TKIP) or WEP.

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

From the above configuration, please try to connect your portable device to the wireless settings of your Netgear router.
