if you have forgotton the password you can return the router to default setting simply by holding the reset button for 15 to 30 seconds, id do 30 just to be safe. then re-install the software from the disc and then change the settings. default username is: admin default password is: password

You can push the reset button on the netgear router, which will put it back to factory settings. The default user will be admin, and password will be password. The you can reset the system. If you did not change your user name and password when you first installed the router, you might try that username and password first. The go into the setting and change what you need to.

Honestly, I never set mine up correctly and never set up a password, though I do have it on a secure network. If you are using Windows (which I assume you are) try this: Go to your computer that already has access to the network, go to the Control Panel (from the Start Menu), go to Network & Sharing Center, go to Manage Wireless Networks, double-click on your network name, then click on the security tab and there should be a check-box that says Show characters. This will give you the security key. Next, go to your guest computer, find your network and connect with the key. Once they are connected, you can manually control their access if you want. Hope it works for you.
