Using a D-Link wireless router, you can connect all of the computers in your business to the Internet without the hassle of long cables and cords. The D-Link wireless router also enables you to connect the computers together on a network, allowing you to share files between machines. If you created an administrator password when you set up the router, you need to enter this password whenever you want to change the settings. If you forgot the password, though, the only way to reset it is to reset the router to its factory default state.

Follow the steps below and you will be find.

Resetting the Admin Password

Step 1

Press the reset button on the side or back of the router with a paper clip or other thin object.

Step 2

Hold the button down for 10 seconds. Do not touch the power button during the reset process. Wait for the WLAN light to stop blinking.

Step 3

Open your Internet browse and type "" without quotes into the address bar. Press "Enter."

Step 4

Type "admin" in the login ID box. Do not type anything in the password box. Close the window to apply the changes.

Reset Wi-Fi Password

Step 1

Open an Internet browser and enter "" without quotes into the address bar. Press "Enter" to go to the D-Link router configuration page.

Step 2

Click "Admin" and type your administrator password. Press "Enter."

Step 3

Click "Setup" at the top of the page. Click "Wireless Settings" on the left side of the page.

Step 4

Click "Manual Wireless Connection Setup." Scroll down to find the Pre-Shared Key field.

Step 5

Type a new Wi-Fi password in the Pre-Shared Key field. Close the window to save the new password.

If you saved your router's configuration to a file, you can use this file to quickly restore the settings after resetting the admin password. To make the file, go to the D-Link router settings page, then click "Tools," "System" and "Save Configuration." Return to this page to load the configuration file after a reset.


Resetting the admin password deletes your router's settings.
