Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
If you have never actually set a password, go to eh IP Address 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.2.1. The username field is blank and the password field is admin.
If you have actually forgotten the password, you need to reset the router. You can do this by gaining physical access to your router. There should be a reset button (or hole) in the back of it. You need a pin or something really skinny that is able to fit inside there. Hold the button for 20 or 30 seconds. After the router lights stop blinking about, the router is fully reset to factory details. Go to the IP Address 192.168.1.1, and the username and password is the same as above.

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or
forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to
reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset
to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and
password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to
reconfigure your router settings.
NOTE: Restoring factory defaults
on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose
any configurations saved to the device!
