How do I get around the username and password on a Negear WGR614v7 wireless router?  Someone else set this up and I do not have the username and password, but need to reset the security on it. Thanks, Dan Maguire dan.maguire@hotmail.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I take you have tried the default user of admin and password of password?
If not there is no way to get it back you will have to hard reset it and re-enter connection settings.

Please refer to this document from Netgear’s KB, which lists the default user name & password for Netgear equipment:

    Well, all them have "reset knob" - in fact, the konb is inside a hole, and you have to keep it pressed for quite a long time (last time I used it on a D-Link router it was 20 seconds while power of the applience is on - but, check your manual). If you use it as a gate to the internet, make sure that you have handy the details of your ISP account (PPOE username/password, etc) AND that you can connect their hot-line... Better, before resetting the router, check your internet connectivity from a PC: that "last time" I had all the details, but during the check was unable to establish PPOE connection :o(((. When I called the ISP, it appeared that in addition to servicename/username/password, they also recorded and used as a security check the appliance MAC address. Latter, BTW, is user-defined in most routers and if you don't discover it by some means, the hot-line number is just vital. So, go ahead and good luck, Petko A.
