There are a reset bottom in the back, click it when it is on for 10 or 15 second until the power led blinks then it will rest to default password, but this will remove all the setting, then you will have to reprogram it.

You can log into your router. You have to be hard wired into the router. Ethernet cable. once you are hard wired connected type 192.168.1.1 in your address bar and you will get a log in screen. Hopefully you saved your login but if there isn't, just push ok and it will take you into the router screen if you never set up a user name and password, from there you push the wireless tab and look up the password. If you can't remember your log in. you may just need to reset the router by the reset button and set everything up again.

I have a WRT160N when I want to go on internet with my labtop I have to fill in a code. I have forgotten this code. What can I do?


If you can go into the Linksys wireless configuration the you can get the wireless settings (ie the SSID and encryption code) and use info to configure the wireless card in your computer.
If not then -
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

My linksys router wrt54gv8 not connected to work for my laptop wireless but have connection to my desktop


If I understand you correctly. You cannot connect wirelessly at work with you laptop but you can connect with your desktop.
1. The laptop has to be allowed on the network by either MAC address ( Media Access Control) number or an IP (Internet protocol) address.
2. This is done by the administrator of the router. To allow the device to be seen by the router and and assign an IP address to that device to gain access to the server and be able to connect to the Internet.
3. At work you will have an IT administrator that will give a password/ user name to allow you to obtain access to the company server.
I hope this helps. Have a great day.

I have forgotten my password and need to connect a new computer to my router-the router is a belking plus mimo and I have a linksys wireless g speed booster -what do I do to fix this? Many thanks


Reset the both routers in order to go to the factory default setting.
BELKIN (192.168.2.1) normally has no user name or password. So just hit enter.
Linksys (192.168.1.1)
User Name: admin
Pass Word: admin

You can always change the user name and password

Good Luck!

Logging in to a LinkSys Router
LinkSys Default Password On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
