To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router 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 be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
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 admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

SOURCE: Forgotten Router Password

Hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds or more and the router will be restored to factory defaults. This also means that your configuration will be set to factory defaults also, so if your router is configured for your ISP you may loose your connection until you set the unit up again. The default password for the router is admin in lower case letters.

SOURCE: trying to login in to my 192.168.1.1 linksys

This commonly happens with a modem router conflict

Try the following procedure and write down anything you change so that if you need to go back you know what was changed.

Connect ONLY the MODEM to a PC by wire and nothing else

Go to the start menu and select RUN
In the box type "cmd"
Now in the black screen that has come up type "ipconfig /all"

Take note of the numbers that are in 4 groups e.g. 192.168.1.1
Also take note of the name in front of those numbers !

Write down any numbers where it says DNS too as they may be useful (you only need the ones with numbers not the ones with letters)

Now do the same thing with your modem
If that too has the same IP as your router in "default gateway" then you need to fix that issue as that is probably a part of your problems.

The fix for router modem conflict is to set the router to use a different IP range.

To do this only have the router connected (by wire) and open an INTERNET explorer page (it will fail but that's OK)

In the address bar type the number you got for default gateway above for the router e.g. 192.168.1.1 and press ENTER

When it asks for the user name, give it the one you gave it when you set the router up or the default one from your manual
Also give it the password you gave it when you set it up or once again the default one from the manual.

You now need to look for a box that has the number you just used to get into the router.

It may just say IP address or Starting IP or something similar
That is the number you should change. I usually change the third block e.g. 192.168.2.1 as opposed to 192.168.1.1

You should also have some DNS numbers from the checks further up with the MODEM

You should find the DNS boxes and place those numbers in there. This will allow your computer quicker access to finding things on the Internet

Now look for the save settings button and do so.

Reconnect the modem and router.
The cable from the modem should go to the YELLOW socket on the router.
Power up the modem and WAIT until all the correct lights are on.

Then do the same with the router.

Now power up a PC and check that you can surf without problems
If not then the problem may lay elsewhere. Go back and re-check.

Also don't try to change router settings via a wireless connection. It can be fraught with problems and most router makers advise against it.

SOURCE: Cant access my linksys router

Are you looking for the wireless password or the password of the router?
If you want the password of the router, then try the default password of the router. If the default password doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
If you are looking for the wireless network password, then you will need to open the set up page of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. Or any other computer which is able to go online using the router. Check the IP address on that computer. open the set up page of the router. Set up page of the router is the page where you will find all the settings of the router. under the wireless section you will find the wireless network password

Tip

Forgot my password.


If you ever forget your password to your router you can look up the default password online.
Most default passwords for linksys is: login=blank password=admin
Default passwords for belkin is: blank
Default passwords for netgear: login=admin password=password
Default passwords for d-link: login=admin password=1234 or password.

if none of the passwords work then you can reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button in with a paperclip for 30 seconds while powered on. This will erase any customized settings and apply the factory default settings. If the password doesn't work please check with your device manual.

My Linksys Router is secured with password but I forgot the password Is there any solution for my problem? Please help...Ty


Perform a Linksys reset

The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).

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.

I forgot my password


If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.

To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.

Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.

To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your 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.

Press the reset button for 10 seconds. It set the factory default
