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.

You may find it helpful to check the owner's manual. If you don't have that available, you can download a copy here:

Be sure to specify the correct router model.

If you can access the web-based configuration page for your router, you should be able to view (or reset) the wireless security key. (Check the owner's manual for your model.)

For many Belkin routers, the URL for that page is simply: http://router

Then select "Security", and following the onscreen guidance.

If you're not able access the router's configuration page, and the passwords are stored, you should still be able to retrieve them by installing some free software.

Open internet explorer and enter the gateway address into the address bar.

Cant remember my password and i dont know how to change it


Suggest take the Netbook to the nearest Sylvania authorized computer repair shop, and;
1) Proof of ID
2) Proof of ownership, (Receipt of purchase)]
3) Credit card

The tech will obtain a Master password. From there the tech will either put a password on you want, or disable password.
The tech keeps the Master password.

I dont remember my password i cant acces anything


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID WPA or encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router. To accessthe Belkin configuration, connect a LAN cable from the Belkin to the LAN porton your computer. Open a browser and enter the Belkin configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The defaultPW = blank (just press Enter) You can nowgo into the wireless settings to obtain the WPA2 encryption key or change it toa new one.

We cant change the settings on the wireless router because we dont know the password


there hasn't usually a password on the belkin routers I've used so try leaving it blank. Alternatively, try resetting the router as per the manual and start again.

Cannot remember what my password is for my wireless router. I want to use a laptop from it. Any ideas?


There are two possible solutions, depending on which password you can't remember. If you remember the password to log into the router, you can go to the wireless security page and see the wireless password (you may have to uncheck the "obscure password" box to see it). If the password you can't remember is the one needed to log into the router, I believe your only recourse is to hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds to restore the factory defaults. NOTE: you will then have to re-configure the router as if you had just taken it out of the box.

I have a Belkin Wireless adaptor and a wireless router. The netgear adaptor I had before on my desktop got borken so I replaced with a Belkin adaptor. The new Belkin adaptor is not recognizing the wireless...


Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer? Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections". If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it. If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again. let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it
