Hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds or more and the router will be restored to factory defaults. This also means that your configuration will be set to factory defaults also, so if your router is configured for your ISP you may loose your connection until you set the unit up again. The default password for the router is admin in lower case letters.

WHAT IS the security key for 2wire 525 ?


Enter the 10 digit number for password if you have forgotten it. The 10 digit number is found either on the side or under the router below the SN number. If you changed the password and forgot it, then enter the menu to change password. Then when you get the prompt to enter the password, click on the link below that says forgot password. You may need to click the forgot password a second time as well before you see a dialog box that says enter password. Once you enter the 10 digit number, choose your new password, confirm it and enter a hint so you can remember it the next time. Hope this helps.

I forgot the password and username,and i want to change the security password of my router what shall i do?


If you have forgotten the router's password then you have to reset the router to factory default to access the interface again. Then you can use the router's default user name and password, that is admin and admin (or username: " " (leave it blank) and password: admin (all in lower case)

You can find the default passwords on the following website;

Once you have logged in to the router console, you can set new security password

I forgot the wifi password


The default password is "admin" with the username as "admin" as well. If you have changed the password and forgotten it, then feel free to reset the router to factory settings by keeping the Reset button on the router pressed for more than 30 seconds.

Linksys routers are simple home based or small network based routers. So unless you have set up your router for some special functions, you won't lose anything that you can't set up again.

I forgot my user name and logon domain


If you've forgotten the Router password, then press the Router Reset button (a small point) located next to the Ethernet port on the Router to restore the Router to factory settings.
After resetting the Router to factory defaults, use the default name and password.

I changed my password but I forgot it


Do you have a Linksys router and you have forgotten your password or you want to reset the password to the default. Firstly you must have physical access to the router. This article is basically for WRT54g and model BEFW11S4
If you have changed the password from the default password and have forgotten the default or your router did not come with any documentation.
To regain access to the router try the following. In the username field leaveit blank and in the password field type admin

Username / leave blank
password / admin

The Rest Button on a Linksys Router

To reset the router
While the back of your router might look different, the reset button is usually clearly marked. To reset the router to the default password, insert something thin--like a pencil point--and depress the red button. Hold that for a few seconds. The password for your Linksys router should have reverted to its default.
Try accessing it from a machine that is plugged directly into it. The default address is usually http://192.168.1.1. When you gain access to the router then you can change the password to any word of your choice.

Forgot password have reset but still wont let me in.


First reset again your router to factory settings, just in case. Do this by pressing the tiny button at the back of the router with a pencil, this works for most of the routers. Then check the router manual or go to factory website and find out default setting for admin and password. some router works with 'admin'/'admin' or 'admin'/'1234'. check factory website.

hope this helps.
