How to Reset Belkin Wireless Router Password

I know lot of you have issues with your wireless routers, some times router becomes unresponsive or you can do this even if you forget login password. Resetting Belkin router password is easy process, but make sure it will restore router to its factory settings. Normally this procedure is recommended when you forget your default password or Belkin router default IP address changes. Follow the below mentioned instructions carefully.

How to Reset Belkin Wireless Router to Factory Settings

I have posted very simple instructions to follow. you can post questions if you have any.

  1. While performing Belkin router password reset, first unplug the modem cable and make sure router is powered ON.
  2. Its pretty hard to locate the the reset button- find the picture below for reference.
  3. Use tooth pick or paper clip and press the reset button , count at-least 10 seconds by holding reset button.
  4. Normally, all the lights starts flashing, and router will reboot within one minute. (This is the best way to check see if router is successfully reset)

Important Note: There are two different passwords when we talk about Belkin router passwords, the first one is router settings page password and second password is security key which is used to connect your wireless router from a computer or a gadget. In both the cases if you forget your password you can reset your router and reconfigure ans setup new passwords

      Once you reset your router, do not type any password (leave password space blank) and hit submit.

        This worked! thank you…I was attempting to connect my iPhone and xbox wirelessly. My iPhone kept asking for a password which I just reset again thru my desktop computer..the wireless light on the router would not turn on…as soon as I disabled the password on the router thru my desktop…the wireless light lit up and my iPhone connected. Now I reset my password. Took me an hour lol.

    My Belkin “n” router blinks green when i first connect it to the cable. It then turns solid green for, maby, 20 seconds and then begins to blink green again. I have not installed the disk to my computer at this time. the router is connected through a modem. why can I not establish a connection to the router at this point? I was under the impression that I did not have to be connected to my computer to establish a connection at the router.

      Hi Jerry,
      You need to connect your belkin router to the computer only during the configuration. please follow the links on above article to go through router setup.

    What do I do if wireless light is still off even after I go through all the steps? I have reset the router and computer and the light is still off. What do I do now?

    • admin says:

      Hi Adrianna,
      Computer light will lit only if your router is connected to the computer. When you press the reset button make sure all the lights blinks, so approximately you need to hold the reset button for 10 to 15 seconds. Try this again and follow the instructions for router setup, still if you don’t see computer and wireless light lit then call up Belkin Toll Free No. +1 800-419-5546 for replacement.

    My wireless light comes on but not the modem or internet light?? My DSL works when direct wired from the DSL box but not through the router. Everything has worked fine for several years but last night we had a lightening strike close to home which messed up the phone lines and cut the power off and on very quickly.

      Hi Orin,
      Turn of (Power off from wall socket) your DSL modem and Wireless router for a while, then first turn ON your DSL modem wait for 2 mins until all the light get steady then turn on the wireless router and see if you can see internet light if not reset your router and perform this procedure again!

    I am trying to set a password to my Belkin router and have made several attempts and have not been able to establish one. I have an older model which is Belkin 2.4 GHz 802.11g wireless. I would greatly appreciate it if you could assist me with this matter. According to the information that I have received from the internet i.e.: unplug the router from the modem and reset the router by holding down the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. Nothing Happens no page comes up for me to set or reset the password. Please help, too many thieves/malicious internet offender or on the internet causing chaos for no apparent reason. Again Thank You for any assist that you could possibly give to help me with this situation.
