locked out netgear password

  [DELETED] 17:21 15 Jan 2006

recently a friend installed a netgear DG834G router to my system for wireless networking. Everything was going well till i discovered my encryption is off and i read about WEP and WPA-PSK encryption and now im totally confused, to top it all i have just locked myself out of my netgear settings password. Can anyone help.?

p.s. this is my first post

You can usually reset the router by pressing a switch on the back. It usually requires a small pointed object to push. This will reset all the settings, so you will need to login with the default username and password and configure it all again.

The reset button only performs an effective reboot it will have no effect of by passing the password.

It should remove the password and set all the settings to default.

I would be extremely disappointed in a company that provided a 'reset' button that allowed anyone to remove all my security settings simply at the push of a button!!!!!!!!!!

but you may be right - and if so that's Netgear off my list.
