When you installed the router, you provided a password/passphrase for connecting to your wireless network.
Apparently you didn't write this down or someone else set up the router.
If you don't have access to the admin console on the router either, you'll have to do a factory reset of the router to allow you to set it all up all over again.
This time, make a note of your passwords.

Reset the router:


Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

When it says hold for about 10 seconds, don't hold for more than ten seconds or the procedure will likely fail, if ten seconds doesn't work try 5 seconds.

After you reset the router, restart your computer

Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
    login.jpg
  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "restore to factory default". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed.

hi there, the best solution for you is to reset the password. Hold the reset button for at least 5 seconds.
Then access the HTTP portal and use these:

Username: N/A Password: (blank)
Hope this helps,

1. Powercycle your equipment (unplug the power to your router and your modem)
2. Wait 15 seconds then plug equipment back in.
3.If your Modem runs off signal from a tower try and get more signal simply by moving modem closer to a window.
4.Check your connections to the modem and to the router, ensure the wires are plugged all the way in.
5.Using your wireless signal from your computer pc or laptop ensure you have sufficient signal you may have to move closer to the router, once in a while you will be to far from your router to have a good connection.
6. Make sure the ventilation slots on modem and router are not blocked.
7.Check to see how far your modem is away from any electrical equipment your modem should be away at least 3 feet away.
8. If you are able to keep connection directly plugged into your modem from your computer most likely there is an issue with the router, In this case you can always reset your router there may be a configuration error in your router, To reset simply press and hold reset button on the back of the router for approximately 15 seconds or until router restarts, Caution by resetting your router will reset back to factory default and your router will be unsecure once again.
9. When your are disconnected from the internet make sure that the Connection itself isnt still connected if your connection itself is connected and you are unable to get online you may need to renew your ip address. usually your ip address automatically renew's once the router and modem have been powercycled (unplugged and plugged back in) however you may need to manually renew your ip.
10.Windows Xp: Start/Run/CMD and press ok
A.Type ipconfig /release
B.Type ipconfig /renew
Windows Vista/7 Start/All Programs/Accessories/Right click on command prompt and hit run as administrator.
A.Type ipconfig /release
B.Type ipconfig /renew then restart your computer
If you are a Mac user:Here is a link to show you how to renew http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1920 If your continue to get disconnected contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) Check and ensure that it is not an issue on there end

Step 1 Go to Start> Control Panel > and select Network connections.

Step 2 Right click on your network card (for 2000 and XP only)and select Properties.

Step 3 Select the Configure button.

Step 4 Under the Advanced tab you will see two boxes; Property and Value.

Note: Depending on the type of Ethernet card you are using the headings in the Property box will be slightly different.

Step 5 Select each heading in the Properties box until the Value box displays the speed of your Ethernet card (it will look like this: Auto-Negotiation, 10Mb Full, 100 MB Half, etc..). You want to select 10mb Full Duplex.

Step 6 Keep clicking OK until you get to the desktop. Your computer may ask you to reboot depending on the version of Windows you are running.

Are you looking for the wireless password or the password of the router?
If you want the password of the router, then try the default password of the router. If the default password doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
If you are looking for the wireless network password, then you will need to open the set up page of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. Or any other computer which is able to go online using the router. Check the IP address on that computer. open the set up page of the router. Set up page of the router is the page where you will find all the settings of the router. under the wireless section you will find the wireless network password
