    I had the same problem with them and the online and phone support were horrible!!! Their support helped me get it up and running and then they told me to push the reset button in the back for 30 seconds, then unplug for 30 seconds and plug in again w/reset button pressed. I did, it didn't work and I couldn't get back in with either my password (which I used several times before) nor with Admin. I I eventually reinstalled it from scratch with the CD and had to go through the whole process of providing the Linksys settings (this time I saved it [.bin file] and then it ran fine.

Hi rsmagdasoc,

Did you run the setup CD before? It might have been that you had change the password from there.

I am switching internet provider. What I should do to reconfig my linksys wrt54gc router?


If you will be switching to a different internet provider what you need is to get their network settings.Most of the time if its DSL or Cable connection all you need is just your account name and password from them for the router to talk to your modem. Thanks

How can I know my router's security password?

Not quite clear as to your problem. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?

Those are two separate passwords, and you may be able to retrieve them both. The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.

If the passwords are stored, you should be able to retrieve them by installing some additional software.

For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:

My Linksys WRT54GC suddenly stopped working. The router has no power light but the wireless and internet light are green.

Sounds like a PSU failure possibly.

If you can still get wired internet then its not dead. Its even possible the power LED is pooched if you can still use the wired connections.
