There?s not much you can do. Try to put the router?s default password which is ?admin? (lower case) and then copy the settings so you can reconstruct them after the reset of the router. Hope it works good luck.

Forgot user name & password to Linksys wireless EA3500. How can I retrieve it?


did you change the username and password on the router

if not
1) it maybe written on a label on the router
2) often it is
admin
admin

if you changed it , then you could try using the factory reset button on the device to return to factory settings

If the router was supplied by your broadband supplier they may have setup a username and password themselves and in which case you would need to contact them

How to retrieve my password


If you mean by retrieve, find out what it is, that will required you remembering it as there is no retrieval method available. If there were, it would make the password rather useless, don't you think?
You will need to reset the router to factory defaults using the reset button to clear out the forgotten password. Connect your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable. Open a browser. Login using the default IP, user id and password for the router. Assign new password, then save and re-login with new password. Then reconfigure router to get things back to normal as all settings were reset during factory reset process.

I have lost the password to my lynskys /wrt54/g router, how can I retrieve it or change it?


Try http://www.linksys.com/connect and if unsuccessful, there is no way to 'retrieve' a router password. If you forget it, you will have to factory reset it

Open a web browser and enter the address "http://192.168.1.1" in the address bar.
Leave the user name blank and enter the password "admin" without quotes. This is the factory default password

Linksys password recovery


Computer Hope does not assist users in bypassing this security measure. If this is your router and you've forgotten the username or password we suggest that the router be hard reset and then setup with a new username and password.
Default username and password

Before doing a hard reset on the router you may want to try the default username and password. While this is not the same for all routers, this may allow you access to your router.

Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.

If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com.
Resetting your router

If the default username and password doesn't work it's likely you or someone whose setup your router has enabled a password that has been forgotten. Thankfully most routers will have a small pinhole button on the back or bottom of the router (like that shown in the picture to the right), pressing this button in and holding on this button for 10-15 seconds will hard reset the router. After this has been done setup the router again and enter a username and password that you can write down.
hope this helps

If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and configure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it'sEthernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URLhttp://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
LinkSys Default Password
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." While newer models, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you go past the login screen, you should be able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default usernames:

Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
Linksys WRT54G, BEFW11S4: admin
Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
All other Linksys routers: {none}
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default passwords:
Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
Linksys BEFW11S4: {none}
All other Linksys routers: admin
For those [none] username/password entries listed above, no name or password is required. Just skip or press the Enter/Return key when prompted for those settings.

Forgot my password


Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > security

On this screen you can see the wireless key
If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is Preshared key

Thanks

    You want to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router.

    After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your nosy neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. I am picking up 4 networks with my pc antenna.



    Hope i was helpfull.

    How can I retrieve my security key for my router?


    You do not need to retrieve the password if you cannot remember. Just reset your router and use (admin) for user name and password. To reset your router you can see a small hole in your router which is labeled reset. Use a pin and insert it to the hole and push.
