How to reset netgear wgr614 to factory default


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.

Step 1: 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.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: 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.

How do I get the password for my Wireless G Model WRT54G Router, if I can't remember it to configure a wireless printer that is asking for the password?


Which password do you need?
do you need the wifi key??

or the router password?

Try the default login information (make sure the computer is connected to the router):
http://192.168.1.1/
username: admin
password: [leave blank]

If this doesn't work, you will have to reset the router to it's default settings. There's a small reset button on the back. It is very small, it needs to be pressed with a pen.
This will reset to the default login information that I provided above.
PLease note that this method will reset any settings that have been already set in the router and you will have to set it again. These might include, port forwarding, wifi security and key, mac access list, etc.
Do not reset unless you know everything that needs to be set up again.

good luck.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Need the security key password for wireless linksys WRT54G router.mine don't work


The default username and password are as follows:

username: (leave blank)
password: admin

If that doesn't work, you can factory restore the router by doing the following:

1. Unplug the router
2. Hold in the reset button for 30 seconds
3. Plug the router back in and continue holding in the reset button for another 30 seconds

Note that this will reset all of your router's settings to default and you will lose any of the stored settings you have, but it will reset the password to the default I listed above. Hope this helps!

Don't remember my router password


If you can't remember your password your only option is to factory reset the router and reconfigure it.

There is a button on the router, it's recessed and will need to be pushed using a paperclip or something small. Push and hold this button for 30 seconds to reset the router to factory settings.

After this you will need to reconfigure the router and set up the new security/password.

I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.

Reset and Restore the NETGEAR device to Factory Default Settings

Symptoms:

  • Forgotten/lost password to log into the NETGEAR device
  • Cannot access the NETGEAR device web interface

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

Need to set up my router (Belkin N Wireless Router) but cant find the disk that came with it. how do I go about getting it set up so I have wireless internet. Thanks for your help


1. Hold the reset button for 7 seconds when the router is powered to reset the router back to factory default.
2. Connect your computer to this router's ethernet port, type 192.168.2.1 on your browser's address bar then hit "enter".
3. You should see the Admin login page of this router, the default password is blank, it means you don't type anything onto the password field, just click "Login"
4. Make some necessary change, such as wireless keys, remember using WPA2 for security, not WEP.

Hope this help.
