You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. Use a paper pin to press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please not that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN

HOPE IT HELPS...Let me know if you need any further assistance

You can reset your Netgear router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings. For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Check that your Netgear router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

Driver download

Routers do not require drivers to be installed in a computer. The only driver necessary to communicate with a router is whatever driver you need for the networking card (wired or wireless) contained in the computer. The rest is done via standard networking protcols.

I can't find my wep key for 3800hg-b

You need to reset your router. Look on the back of the router. There should be a reset option. Press and on the rest button with a stick pin or something. Unplug the cable/dsl modem from the ac outlet. Then unplug the router from the ac. Plug the cable/dsl modem back in wait a few minutes then plug in your router. You need your router setup software again so you can rest your wifi security. When you are setting it back up you can see your WiFi key you can log on.

Hope this help.

Please rate.
