Your D-Link router's browser-based wireless settings give you the option to reset the wireless security key which is a quick fix for a forgotten password. To access these settings you must first log in to the setup utility which requires the router's password. Forgetting this password is more problematic because there's no way to reset just the password. Instead you must reset the D-Link router to restore factory defaults. All your settings will be lost but the default blank password will be restored so you can again access the setup utility.

Reset Administrator Password
Step 1: Power on the D-Link router and locate the recessed "Reset" button on the back of the router.
Step 2: Press the "Reset" button with a straightened paper clip and hold it for 10 seconds until the router's lights blink.
Step 3: Wait 30 seconds for the router to fully reboot. The default "admin" username and blank password are restored.

Reset Wireless Password
Step 1: Plug an Ethernet cable into any numbered port on the D-Link router and plug the other end into your computer's "Network" port.
Step 2: Enter "" in your browser's address bar and log in to the setup utility.

Step 3: Click the "Wireless Settings" side tab and select the "Manual Wireless Network Setup" button.

Step 4: Scroll down to the wireless network password field. This field is typically labeled "Pre-Shared Key "Passphrase" or "WEP Key." The password is displayed as a string of black circles for security reasons.

Step 5: Click anywhere in the password field press "Ctrl-A" to select all characters and press "Backspace" to delete them.

Step 6: Type a new passphrase. If you are using the WEP security protocol you may use a five- or 13-character passphrase but you should switch to the much stronger "WPA" or "WPA2" protocol by selecting that option in the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. WPA and WPA2 security protocols allow eight to 63 alphanumeric characters.
Step 7: Click "Save Settings" to reset the password.


Step 1: Connect an Ethernet cable from one of the numbered ports on your D-Link router to your computer's Ethernet port. Although you could use a wireless connection once you make changes to the wireless settings you would be logged out so it is highly recommended to use a wired connection.

Step 2: Open your Web browser and navigate to "". Enter "admin" as the username and leave the password blank during login. If you previously changed your login details use the updated values.

Step 3: Click "Wireless Settings" and choose the "Manual Wireless Network Setup" option.

Step 4: Click the "Setup" tab to access and change wireless settings. Common settings are enabling wireless choosing a network SSID name making the network name invisible selecting a security protocol and creating a passphrase. After making your preferred changes click "Save Settings".
