    Hi... Just bought Belkin wireless router F5D8236ak4.

    Used the setup disk to setup everything. Gone well so far.
    The setup disk require a login... initially was blank (default=no password)..

    I input a password... (I forgotten this password!... dumb me)

    Please help if anyone can help me retrieve or reset this password.

    Thank you

    Hold the recessed reset button for about 15 seconds. See the User Manual (on CD) for specifics or the diagram showing the location of the reset button.
