There is some information on the following link:

Also you can reset the access point, by putting a paper clip into the reset hole for a few seconds. I think the default username and password is "admin"

Setting linksys wireless access point security


Reset the Linksys to "factory settings", including the default logon-ID and password. Login to the router, and enable wireless security, and set a password for your wireless network.

I forgot the password


If you forgot the password of the router what you can do here is to reset it, to do that look for a small reset button on the back or underneath the router , then use a pen or paper clip to press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds while it is power o.

After doing that power off and power back on the router and you need to reconfigure it back like a new router.

My device keeps telling me that I have entered the wrong password for my network, when I have put in the right password multiple times.


If your Linksys admin password was not changed and your router is unsecured then someone could have changed your router's settings and network password.
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.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Want to change password for LinkSys Wireless Router. Also want to make outgoing information secure.


If you have forgotten the username/password for the router you can reset it by pushing and holding reset button for 15 seconds.

Then following the steps here:
http://www.lucidlink.com/media/docs_autogen/LinksysWRT54G.pdf

The later pages describe how to configure security and change your password.

If you are new to wireless I suggest selecting WEP or WPA-PSK.

Can't find passphrase or security key on linksys-g model # wrt55rg


If you didn't tape the key to the bottom of the router, you get to log in and create a new one. Or did you lose the login password to the router too?

Oops, if you did, try the reset button and set it up again.
