I forgot my password, where do I go for assistance so they can email me my password


Resetting the System Password
If you forget your password and still cannot remember it after seeing your hint, click the I still can't remember the password link.
The Reset System Password page opens.
To obtain access to your system:
1. In the System Key field enter the 10-digit system key located on the bottom of your gateway.
2. In the Enter New Password field, enter a new system password. In the Confirm New Password field, reenter the system password.
3. In the Enter Your Hint field, enter an appropriate hint as described under "Setting a System Password" .
4. Click Submit.
Setting a System Password
Setting a system password protects your gateway settings from being modified or changed by someone who has not been given permission to do so. After setting a system password, you will be required to enter it whenever you attempt to access a gateway configuration page - for example, if you try to change the gateway's broadband connection settings or upgrade the gateway software. If a password has not been set,
a reminder notice is displayed when you attempt to access pages where settings can be changed.
To set your system password:
• Open a Web browser and access the gateway user interface by entering
http://gateway.2wire.net.
• Click the System tab.
• Click the System Password link in the System area of the Network at a Glance panel to open the Edit
System Password page.
1. In the Settings panel, click the Enable checkbox.
2. In the Enter New Password field, enter your password.
3. In the Confirm New Password field, re-enter your password.
4. Optional: In the Enter Your Hint field, enter a hint.
A hint is a word, phrase, or question that reminds you what the password is. There is an I forgot the password link on the password entry page. When you click this link, it shows you your hint and allows you to enter your password.
5. Click SAVE.

D-Link wireless router forgot password how may I recover or assign a new one


Hi there,

A wireless router password wont be recovered unless you still have the password you can enter or if the router is unmanaged without an admin password.

another option would be resetting your router to be able to get through the router and assign a new password.

here's how: you need to directly connect your computer or laptop wired going to your router not using a wireless one. then reset, make a new network configuration and put your admin password later. dont forget to backup your router config. in a folder together with your password so the nextime you forgot any thing or change anything. just look back to your folder where you put your backup config. and password.

Old computer crashed, forgot my router's password for my new computer toget back on line.


if you have a linksys router then you can just reset it to factory settings by holding the reset button on the back for 30 seconds when you power it on.
then you can go to http://192.168.1.1
default login is blank and password is admin.

My compuer crashed now i can"t get router to work


Reset the router.Here is how:

Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.

Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3 The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.

Note: The factory defaults username is admin, and there is no password.

Reset There are two ways to reset the Router’s
factory defaults. Either press and hold the Reset
Button for approximately five seconds, or restore
the defaults from Administration > Factory
Defaults in the Router’s web-based utility.

How to Access the Web-Based Utility
To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on
your computer, and enter the Router’s default IP address,
192.168.1.1, in the Address field. Then, press Enter.
A login screen will appear. (Non-Windows XP users will
see a similar screen.) Leave the User name field blank. The
first time you open the Web-based utility, use the default
password admin. (You can set a new password from the
Administration tab’s Management screen.) Click OK to
continue.

Computer crashed. need to recognize my router. forgot my password.


Sadly, is very difficult to break into router. For the time spend and the resources you will need, is better simply reset the router.

I forgot my username and password and want to create a VPN or remote connection


If you've forgotten the username and password, there is really no viable solution other than resetting the router. All the software can be found on linksys' website, along with manuals for reconfiguring your router. Breakout your trusty paperclip and press the reset button on the back of the router. Reconfiguring should only take a few minutes. The default username will be "admin" and the default password is "password" (both without the quotes.)

Manual

No software is actually required to install the router. Any information needed will be in the manaul, provided above.

Hope this helps!

Router password


Before following this procedure beware that the reset function on the router will probably reset the entire configuration to the factory original. You will probably need to completely reconfigure your router after the reset including WAN side IP address or dynamic and possibly PPPoE userid and password if required by your ISP.

select your region and country

Select Choose a Product

Enter your product or navigate to it.

Download your user guide.

It should have instructions for resetting the router as well as reconfiguring the router.
