  • You might have to reset the entire thing. Look up on their website, for the master reset.

  • Is there any information on the back of the router?

  • oh boy, hmm I bought my router years back and forgot the password info, luckily I havent had to use it but I would try to contact the company and ask them what you can do

  • You should be able to go to your router with a numeric IP while plugged in. You can look up the IP address for your brand of router by looking it up online.

    If you reset the factory settings on your router (there should be a physical button to press on the router), you can change the passwords from the default by the control panel you reach with the numeric IP address.

  • I would call the company as well.

  • If you have it already set up on the computer there are ways you can go to the computer and change it (i've had to do this before)
    If its not set up you have to do a reset. The company can help you with this but if its a Belkin product I suggest looking online because I have yet to be able to understand anyone who works for their tech support. They also have a hard time understanding what I'm saying.
