Well I cannot help you crack the password, but perhaps find a work around. Do you need the password to have a computer use it, or to configure settings?

With the Router in your network, open any browser (such as Firefox, Chrome, etc.) and try using the default IP for the router:

192.168.0.1

Then the default username and password for the unit should be:

username: admin
password: admin

Try and see if this works, and possibly you can then change your password. Also if you have possibly changed these settings, perhaps it is written down somewhere?

Or call the creator of the device and request a password reset.

I was about to say try this:

D-Link Router reset
Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.
Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.
Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.
Step 4 Release the Reset button.
Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.
Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

It's an old wired router

Given the product I don't see any harm in the advice given so far. Anyone needing to secure a router would be advised to keep it under lock and key, because they are generally simple to reset to defaults.

D-Link 300 routers come in two models.
D-Link DI-300 for wired only and D-Link DIR-300 for the wireless version.

And if aegray5827 didn't the model # right it could be any of the D-Link Wireless N 300 Router series like the DIR-515 or DIR-615

You could also reset the router and setup a new password!


How to reset wireless router password?

The location of the reset button varies depending on your router make and model, but it is usually located in a small pin hole on the side or back of the unit. Insert a small pointed object into the hole until you feel press down.(Hold the button down for 10 to 20 seconds.) Your router is now set back to its factory default settings.


Sign in and configure the router following the reset. Connect a PC to an Ethernet port on the router. Open a Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.1.1 / or http://192.168.0.1 / or http://192.168.2.1 /. A window will pop open, asking you to sign in. On older routers, leave the username field blank and type admin for the password. On newer routers, the default username and password are both usually admin.

* Default Router Passwords
http://www.routerpasswords.com/


Navigate to the Wireless Settings tab after you've signed in and set a new administrator password. For better security, choose a password comprised of random letters and numbers. This makes it a password that is harder to guess.Write down this password and save it in a safe place for future reference.


Then in the Wireless Security Settings tab also enable WEP or WPA security so that leechers cannot jump on your wireless network.

* Use WPA if it is an option because it is more secure.

Jump the gun much? You could simply give him the default user name / password, which isn't exactly a trade secret.

It's available on the dlink web site in the support section. Select the model of your router, and download the manual. This manual will also tell you how to reset the password, in case it's been forgotten, and also will tell you how to log into the router without the CD (by pointing a web browser at the router's admin URL).


Some of us are helpful. If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

Thank you so much Powercroat78. I've done everything I could read about, to get my laptop connected with no luck. Including using a password my son made, when he hook us up to wireless, for our WI game console. I use the default password and user name. Had pushed the on the reset button on the front, didn't know anything about the back Pinhold. I didn't have a manel but looked up the web site, Non of the info worked. It was the same info my son gave me. Since my son doesn't live here in town, he was trying to help me over the phone, with no luck. So Thank You once again.. The pinhole did the job.
