Routers in the UK tend to be a bit different than in the US. For example most in the US don't have the wifi account and password on the bottom of the router like in post #1

Great that everyone wants to jump to setting the router to factory defaults but no one took the time to ask if billyboyeast if in addition to the wifi password being forgotten if he also forgot the logon to the router password.

Billyboyeast you don't need to reset your router to factory if you remembered [or tried your standard passwords] the password so you could logon to the router. The default account is Admin. If you never changed the password it is also admin.

You also never need the setup disk that came with the router and I highly recommend never using them as they tend to load crap software on your computer.

BTW the reset hole is in the back and about the size that a straightened paperclip would fit into. Usually its labeled "reset".

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Hi billyboyeast,

To check the password, connect your router to a computer using a Lan cable. Press and hold Windows key(looks like a flag) and tap R key once to open the Run window.Type cmd and hit enter. Type ipconfig and hit enter. Default gateway would show up on the screen.

Put the same default gateway on the browser and hit enter. It will prompt for username and password. Username and password should be mentioned at the bottom of the router. Put the same and look for wireless network password on the router page.

Also, you may reset the router and set is up using the disk that came with it.

Thanks & Regards

I agree with the last part of DellManshuS' post. Just reset the router and set it up from scratch, it is a walk in the park -at least if you still have the manuals/cd's that came with it when it was new.

"I HAVE FORGOTTON IT MATE IT WAS 3 YEARS AGO AND I HAVE NEVER NEEDED IT UNTIL NOW"

I set up mine years ago too & I know exactly what the password/passphrase is. We have no idea if you're telling the truth or you're attempting to hack into someone else's wifi signal. If it truly is your router, just reset it as has been mentioned.

Hi billyboyeast,

If you could tell me the model of the router, I would provide you step by step instructions to reset the router.

Generally, there is a tiny whole that needs to be pressed using a pointed tool. Reset is mentioned on top of the whole.

"dont understand what you mean by hole"
Look at the back of the router & you will see a small hole with the word > Reset under it.

Do you have the Manual?

Nothing plugs in there.

Download & read the manual, it will tell you how to reset the router. If you cannot understand what to do, get some help from a computer savvy person.

Just a matter of finding the right size object, such as a paper clip or tip of a pencil or biro. You usually feel a little click as the object presses the micro-switch inside. As given, the manual will tell you how long to hold in the reset button, usually about 30 seconds is more than adequate.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I doubt it will help but have you tried disconnecting the router from the power for about half a minute? Sorry if it has been mentioned elsewhere and I've missed it.

Hi billyboyeast,

As rightly suggested by "wanderer", you can open the router page and enter the username and password. On the router page you may click on advance and then select advance wireless to find the password for the wireless network. Also, it may have an option to reset the router under maintenance tab.

Thanks & Regards
