Im stuck, I have deleted my wireless connection password by accident and cannot remember it, which in turn means my wireless connection will not work without it. I have tried to input my ip address into browser and it came up with the D-link page that requests Username and password which i do not have as my girlfriend set everything up with the engineer and has nothing written down anywhere to aide me deep joy. Plz help.

hiya halliday can you close this thread
since just if anybody else needs the info
the username is admin
the password is left blank
click on wireless setup --> manual wireless connection setup and the last box on the page the passkey is your wireless password.

if you still have the problem there is a small button on the back use a pin or paper clip hold it in till the tick flashes orange that will set it back to open and you can re set it up

I also have a D link router and have also lost my password - there seems to be a lot of us about! But when i tried the solutions above i had no joy.
There is no sticker, when i put my IP address in my browser i also get a username / password request but admin and blank doesn't work for me.
The reset button you mentioned doesnt exist on my unit but a hole with a red circle and the word reset around it would seem to be the way to go.
With this in mind, could you post and idiots guide to completing a reset? I never used to need any guides but then I never lost any passowords before either - must be old age. Broadband works just fine and i dont want to lose it just trying to link up my laptop / phone etc.
my router is a DSL-2640R
Any help at all would be great!

Before doing anything, read all the way through and do at your own risk
You might also like to log onto the admin page of your router and write down any settings or things you may have changed
This really should only be used as a last resort
To reset back to factory one would usually do a 30/30/30 reset.
This involves holding the router with the reset button uppermost, and having a pen, stick, straightened out paperclip or similar and doing the following
1) Put the implement in the hole and count to 30
2) Keeping the button pressed pullout the power cord (This can be tricky but persevere) and counting to 30 (This ensures all the internal capacitors can discharge
3) Keeping the button pressed reinsert the power cord and count to 30
Put the router down
LEAVE IT ALONE for at least a minute
When all the lights have returned to normal you should be able to do the initial set up.. It will have lost all your information and will appear as if fresh out of the box.
Open up your favourite web browser and type in
http://192.168.0.1(As Paultechy says)
user name is admin, password is blank and go from there

I have done 30-30-30 twice to no avail, I was connected through wireless named dlinkjk but on Thursday we lost Internet (now reconnected problem outside somewhere). My son tried to rectify by changing wireless to a workgroup renaming wireless, this is working although password unknown, how do I clear this connection and go back to dlinkjk

When the d-link is restored to factory settings via a pinhole reset, the wireless returns to an "unsecured" state by default.
Please do the following:
As the default login for the router configuration pages is general knowledge, it would be wise to change this.
Whilst in the router setup pages, click on "maintenance" across the top and there will be an option to choose a different admin password.
Please let us know if this helps.
