Solved location of pin number for existing router

Specs: Windows 7 router problem
I have had a Belkin Router for over 5 years now. I did not register the PIn number at the time unfortunately.

I now need to access another computer at home and need the use of WI Fi services but I am unable to do so without the Pin number requested. I have spoken to my current Internet provider Kingston Communications who are unable to help me. They suggested that I contact your selves .

I have been more than happy with the service provided by Belkin in the past ,but if I am unable to access these other services I may have to purchase another router and they have suggested Net Gear.

Will you kindly assist in trying to access the PIN number required

✔ Best Answer
You have a couple of options. On one of the computers already connected to the router, try accessing the setup page by opening a browser and typing (this is the default for some Belkin routers but possibly not all of them). If this brings up the Belkin admin page then try using a username of 'admin' and leave the password blank (again this may be different for your router). Then, under the 'wireless/security' section see if the password is displayed in plain text.

If you cannot access the setup page or you cannot see the password then the next option is to reset the router to its default settings, which will then enable you to access the setup page and set a new password. This is usually done by inserting a thin object into the small button marked 'reset', and holding it for 10-15 seconds.

You haven't provided the actual model of router so it is impossible to give a specific answer, but if you need to know how to do any of the above check the router manual or download it from the Belkin site:

If doesn't take you there try instead (also used by some Belkin routers). If the router came with instructions it could be some useful information there. Another possibility is to look on any disk provided, don't let it run tho. Sometimes there is a manual on the disk.

What you are looking for is your "Wireless key (or pass phrase)". Routers don't have PIN numbers.

Note for future that you have posted on the Vista forum but your spec says Windows 7 - best clarified or choose a different forum. Networking would have been a good forum for this query,

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
