router passwords are usually on the bottom of the router. sometimes it is the serial number. if that doesn't help, then if your router is unlocked, you can log into it and find the wifi password in the wireless security section. if your router was supplied by your internet provider, they will often have a copy of it, or can get it for you.
If you got to the router's interface by typing 192.168.0.1 and it requested the userid and password. If the password you enter did not let you in, then the password is wrong. Maybe someone changed the default userid and password to something else.
You can always press the reset button on the router to set it back to Factory Settings. Then the default userid and password will work, but you will have to set the wireless back up and configure the basic settings (if you have a userid and password that the phone company uses as the network userid and password. This is not your email address userid and password).
This process will reset the password to the default BUT it will wipe out ALL settings. With the router powered on: Get a paperclip and straighten it. Locate the pinhole at the back of the router. Gently put the paperclip into the reset hole and keep it pressed for 5 seconds or more.
The router will reboot and the userid will be admin, password 1234
No choice, your have to reset the router to it factory default settings. Just look at the rear side of your router beside the power supply input, there is a reset button, just turn on your router and press the router for more than 5 sec. Please note that, this action will clears the router’s user settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask. So please make sure u have that information before do so especially internet UserID and Password.
1 - Find the reset switch on the router (should be on the back). That will reset the router to factory defaults. 2 - Using a web browser, type in the address 192.168.1.1 - this will get you into the router's web management interface. 3 - Log into the router. User name is "admin", password is "admin". Once logged in, change those, and set your router up again.
There is no way to recover the old password, if you forget it. Sorry, but that is for your own security.
