SOURCE: I need to set a passowrd for my wireless router.

The default username and password is "user". For the security settings, you need to setup WEP/WPA-PSK etc. Steps are outlined in the manual.

Link to the manual:

Default login info for Linksys routers is:

User: BLANK (don't enter anything)
Password: admin

If you never changed it, that is what it probably still is.

This will also be the info you need to use if you perform a reset, like one of the other posters mentioned.

Hi!

Press the reset button for 10 seconds. It set the factory default
settings. The router will erase all information, the DSL settings too.

After that you can login in with the default password, via web
interface:

http://192.168.1.1

username: admin
password: admin

The default username and password is admin/admin.
I hope it hekos.

Hard reset the router ... find the small hole on the back ... depress with a paper clip for 30 or so seconds.

I have forgotten my user id & password.


On most routers this process works everytime.
First push and hold the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds, count slow, longer is better then not long enough.
After the reset unplug the device for 30 seconds.
Plus the router back in and perform another 30 second reset.
Now try to login to the device with it's default username / password
This is usually root with blank password for this model.

Reset password


The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

You need to reset the Wireless Router to change theuser id and the password. The factory default reset button (red) is on the back side. Before reset connect your work station or laptop to the router. Press the reset button for few seconds, it should reset the unit. To access the router through the laptop/workstation, open the IE put this IP address 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of IE. You will see the window pop up for user and password, Leave the user fileld blank and in the password filed put "admin" . After this you can change all the setting.

WARNING: when you reset your router all the connection detail will be set to default, you need to have this information or call your service provider to help out.

Router was reset and is now showing limited connectivity


Hi,
After reset you have to configure the router for internet setting.

Type the url 192.168.1.1
It will ask for user id and password. Keep user id blank and type password as admin.
It will open your router setting. Configure your setting.


Thanks for using FixYa.

I got this info from the online User Manual:

  1. go to web address http://192.168.10.1/
  2. Enter the User ID. The default factory setting is "admin"
  3. Enter the Password. The default factory setting is "motorola"
  4. Click Control Panel > Device Security
  5. In the Login User ID field, enter your User ID. Create an ID that contains multiple casesensitive characters as well as numbers. It cannot be longer than 64 bytes.
  6. In the Login Password field, enter your Login Password. Create a password that contains multiple case-sensitive characters as well as numbers and symbols like “_ + )”.
    It cannot be longer than 64 bytes.
  7. Re-enter your Password.
  8. Click Apply.
  9. Once the settings have been accepted, click Restart and log back into the Configuration Utility using your new User ID and Password.
  10. Select Wireless > Basic.
  11. Change the SSID to a user-friendly name and click Apply.

Wireless Internet stopped working. Can't reconnect.


If restarting the router and restarting computer did not work (unplug both power cables), then you need to log into the router and check network settings.

To log into router type the router IP on internet explore bar, then enter user id and password.
You find details on how to do this, IP and passwords listed on the owner manual.

If wireless security settings on router are fine, then you can reset router to factory default using the pinhole switch. You will need to enter all your broadband settings to have the router working afterward.
