The reset button is usually at the back of the router. If you are unable to locate it you can reset it using a web based set-up page. Make sure you connect your router to a PC using wired connection and perform the following steps:
Step 1:
Launch a web browser like Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
In the Address bar, enter "192.168.1.1" as the router's default IP address then press [Enter]. If this doesn't work or if the IP address of your router has been changed, enter it instead.
Step 3:
Enter "admin" in the Password field then leave the User name blank. If you have set up a User name and Password for your Linksys router before, enter your personalized credentials instead.
QUICK TIP: For Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, you can enter "http://myrouter.local" on the Address bar to access its web-based setup page.
The router's web-based setup page should now appear from here you can reset the router.

I can no longer connect to my linksys profile. I use the WRT54G router. I reset the router password but when I try to log on to the profile it asks me setup questions and even when I put in my password it will not connect.I reset the router to default settings and have gone through a number of steps but nothing has worked.

  3. Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1′ in the address bar.
  4. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. Follow the steps in Securing Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router to secure your router.
Through the Web Administration Pages The second method involves logging into the Web administration pages of the router. Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:

Configure the Router 1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
