LOGISYS ROUTER


1 Press and hold the reset button on the LinkSys router for 30 seconds. The location of the reset button varies depending on your model, but it is usually located in a small pin hole on the side or back of the unit. Insert a straightened paper clip into the hole until you feel resistance. A hard reset occurs and the router is restored to its factory defaults.



2 Log in and reconfigure the router following the hard reset. Connect a PC to an Ethernet port on the router. Open a Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.1.1/. A popup box opens, prompting you to log in. On older LinkSys routers, leave the username field blank and type "admin" for the password. On newer routers, the default username and password are both set to "admin".
3
Go to the Management tab after you've logged in and set a new administrator password. For maximum security, choose a password comprised of random letters and numbers. This type of password is secure because it's impossible to guess.

4
Enable WEP or WAP security so that nosy neighbors cannot tap into your wireless network

I forgot my password and want to add another device to network


You can reset the Linksys back to the factory defaults and then you need to configure the Linksys again and your LAN card in the laptops/computers again.
Power up the Linksys and press and hole the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router for approx. 30 secs.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the router and open a Browser, then enter the Linksys configuration URL.
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default W = admin

I forgot my password


Hi,
If you have forgotten the router password you can reset it.
To do this, turn the router upside down and look for a small pinhole that says reset. Get a stapler and press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds.
The router will reset to factory defaults and you will be able to login again using the default username and password. For linksys routers is "admin" for both fields.

How to change my security password for my computer because I forgot my password and I own a linksys router wrt54g THANKS FOR THE INFO


This answer is not specific to your router but, most wireless router have a 'reset' button on the back. You need to have physical access to the router. It cannot be done remotely. You will probably have to insert a pin or paperclip through a small hole in the back to reset it. You will lose all settings. Then you can log into the router, using the default settings, and set a new password.

I've forgotten my password


DOH! Sorry to hear that! Unless you can remember it, you'll need to reset your router to the factory defaults, which will unlock your password. Your router should have a tiny button on it you'd typically use a ball point pen to depress, which resets it to factory defaults.

Some routers, like linksys, don't have an actual user name so be sure you're leaving that blank. If it is a linksys, the default username is blank, and the password is admin. You'll want to change that quickly and I recommend writing your password in sharpie under your router if you're the forgetful type.
