Re: WRV200 how to change password?

It's possible your 'reset' did not take.    Make sure you hold in the reset button on the back of the router for no less than 30 seconds.   If that does not work, try this:

1)   Take the power cord out of the device.

2)   Wait 15 seconds.

3)    Press in the reset button

4)    While continuing to hold in the reset button, put the power cord back in.

5)   Hold the reset button for at least 30 seconds after you have powered up the device.

That should reset the router to factory default settings.

Re: WRV200 how to change password?

Are you trying to change the routers password, or the wireless password to connect to the router.  Resetting the router would change both, resetting the router back to the default username and password, and also resetting the wireless to use no security.

If you are just trying to reset the wireless password, that can be changed in the routers management interface.

When resetting the router, make sure that you hold down the reset button for 20 seconds.
