Best is to reset the router (see http://www.fixya.com/support/r7947146-reset_belkin_router).
You will lose all the settings you have (you can get them again from your ISP if you need to).
Alternatively can try to find the wep code this way: http://lifehacker.com/#!5305094/how-to-crack-a-wi+fi-networks-wep-password-with-backtrack but that won't solve the missing router password.

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect a device to your wireless router you need to know the wireless settings of the router. The SSid or Access Point (Network Name), Security Type: WEP, WPA, WPA2 or Disable and the Network Key or Security Key (Passphrase).

To obtain the information needed we need to access the Wireless Settings Page. Follow the steps below.

1. You need to know the ipaddress of your router. You can refer to the manual or check the Default Gateway of your computer (Make sure that you connect the computer to the router using an ethernet cable for you to get the Default Gateway). Click on START then RUN. Type CMD on the small box on the lower left of the screen. Type IPCONFIG on the black window and get the value of your DEFAULT GATEWAY (it starts with 192.168.x.x). If your using Belkin F5D7231-4 the default ipaddress is

2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY or the Ipaddress of the router on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. For Belkin Router it usually ask for a Password. If it ask you for a username and password just leave it blank.

3. Under Wireless on left of the window select Channel and SSID
- The SSID is the name of the network
- You can change the channel to 1,6 or 11 because this is a non overlapping channels
- Make sure tht the SSID Broadcast is On so that it will be detected by the Computer or wireless device


4. Click on Encryption, You can select either WEP, WPA or WPA2 to make it secure or Disable or Open to make it a Hotspot. Then confirm the changes try you wireless machine to connect.
Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the personalize network key

Para entrar a las páginas de configuración, es necesario estar conectado al router. Esto puede ser con el cable de red, oa través de su adaptador inalámbrico. Inicie su navegador y escriba la dirección del router. Estas diferencias, pero para el router Linksys que se hará lo siguiente:
A continuación se le pedirá un nombre de usuario y contraseña. Routers tienen un valor predeterminado para ambos. Para el Linksys, es el administrador de nombre de usuario y administrador de la contraseña. (Mira en el manual para la dirección del router y el nombre de usuario y contraseña por defecto.) Haga clic en Aceptar y estarás a su pages.If de configuración que no puede ver las páginas de configuración a continuación, la conexión de su ordenador y el router no funciona . Así que no culpar a su ISP! Es hora de verter sobre los manuales! Otra cosa que puede que tenga que hacer en las páginas de configuración es configurar la seguridad inalámbrica. Si usted no tiene la seguridad activada, cualquier persona dentro del alcance del enrutador inalámbrico podrá conectarse a él. Hay dos formas de seguridad que utilizan la mayoría de los routers inalámbricos, WEP y WPA. Lo que estamos haciendo aquí es encriptar sus señales con una llave. Con la seguridad inalámbrica activada, el router necesita su clave antes de permitir cualquier tráfico a través de él. No significa que no hay clave de acceso.
Wired Equivalent Privacy. Esta es una forma antigua de la seguridad y no es tan seguro como WPA. Hay programas en torno a que los hackers pueden descargar a romper el protocolo WEP. Una vez que han WEP de software, que puede ser capaz de acceder a su router y obtener un viaje gratis en Internet lo menos!
La clave WEP, sin embargo, será o 64 bits o 128 bits de longitud. (128 bits es de 26 caracteres, y se mezcla de los números del 0 al 9 y las letras A a F) Si usted tiene un Livebox de Orange, por ejemplo, entonces se trata con seguridad WEP. Al configurar el router para una conexión inalámbrica, usted tiene el tipo a los 26 caracteres. Obtener un mal y no se conecta!
Wi-Fi Protected Access. seguridad WPA es realmente una actualización de WEP. Se utiliza el cifrado diferente y más fuerte, y así es más difícil de roer. Es más fácil para usted para establecer, también, porque sólo tiene que crear una frase de pase corto en lugar de escribir las 26 letras y números! Usted debe utilizar WPA y no mucho WEPA de routers inalámbricos no tienen la seguridad activa de forma predeterminada. Las páginas de configuración le permitirá que se enciende, y suele haber un menú de ayuda que explican la configuración de seguridad diferentes.

1) You can take the IP add of your device(to which you want to open ports) and then contact the device vendor and ask them to give port numbers for your device. Once u get the port numbers you can either open ports on the router by logging into the router interface using your Default gateway of the router or you could put the IP add of your device in DMZ on the router. Basically this will keep the device out of the firewall of the router( Which is the main reason for this issue). 2) If the first step didnt work you could disable the firewall on the router.
If both the steps didnt work you could check if your router has any firmware update or it has to be reset and re-configured and the above steps should be re-done.
Hope this helped.

WEP is the password that you have set up on the Wireless Router.
It is called the WEP Key.

To get your WAN IP address, you may visit www.whatismyip.com and when the page loads, it will show you your WAN IP address there.
You can, of course, login to the router and get this information too.
But that website makes things a little easier!

If you require any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Hi brendflores,

Welcome to Fixya. Im not quite sure what password you're referring to if ti's the router password or the Network Password or Network Key. Listed below are the steps on how to obtain the Network Password and the Router Password.

For you to get you Security Code or Network Key you need to access your router.To access your router just open a Browser then type, password is blank. Click on the Security under Wireless. You can change the security type of your router to WPA, WEP or you can also Disable the security. Under that you can see the Security Code or Network Key. You can also Personalize the Passphrase or Network Key so that you can easily remember it.

You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.

If you think this is helpful rate me and don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

. You do not have to use the cd.

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

Is it your security passowd?
go to in your browser. when the setup page comes up, leave the passord blank, and click submit.
then select wireless security, there you will see your key.

Is it the router password? If so, you need to reset the router to default settings:

  1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
    See images below:

  1. Leave the router powered on.
  2. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  3. Remove the paperclip.
  4. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.

The settings for the router have now been reset back to their default

Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings.

Can you connect to it via wired or wireless? If yes, then connect to it and then open a command prompt on the PC. Type IPCONFIG and press enter, and then take note of the IP address for "Default Gateway". That should be it.
