Are you referring to the wireless password like WEP or WPA key? if yes,you need to connect your laptop first to your router with a cable,go to 192.168.1.1, then enter,username should be blank ,password is admin, theres a setting there for wireless security

Have a router but not software for linksys, have reset the router but don;t know how to put in new password


Welcome to fixya

No proplem you don't need a software cd to secure the router. Please follow the steps


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 > Wireless security

On this screen select

Security Mode : WPA Personal
WPA Algorithm : TKIP
WPA shard Key : "enter a password here"
Group Key Renewal : set to default

Click on save settings. After that restart router .
Now your wireless network is secured and you will have to type the WPA shared key inorder to connect to router when it prompts

Thanks

I have a new Linksys router WRT54gs and a new Dell laptop.
The router works well with the cable attached but when I go to wireless
I get a strong signal but unable to get on the internet with WEP security.
With security disabled the wireless works fine. But will not connect to the
internet with WEP security on. I tried to use the CD install disk that comes
with the router but ir does not help.
Any help would be apreciated

You need to go into the wireless router settings, if you cannot see the encryption setting the you need to create a new encryption key and the configure the laptop's wireless card with the new encryption key so it can connect to the wireless router and Internet.

I want to change my password


On a LinkSys router hold down the reset button for at least 30 seconds. This will reset the username and password to default factory settings. On older models the username is blank and the password is "admin". On new models "admin" is for both. Good luck.

Pls rate this solution.

How to remove the password


Hello topamaire,

Press and hold the reset button for a count of 15. This resets the router to default

log into the router via the web interface and use the login of admin and the password of either 1234 or admin if these do not work put nothing in the password area just leave it blank .

Thank you,
