CISCO/Linksys -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.

I bought a cisco valet router used and do not know the password , how do I change the password


On the back of the router is a reset button. Press that in for 5-10 seconds. It will reset to factory specs. Once you reset the Valet Hotspot, all of its customized settings (network name, wireless security, etc.) will be erased and the hotspot's IP address will be reverted back to 192.168.1.1, with a default password of admin and no username.

I recently acquired a linksys router (used) and need to know how to reset the password so that I can use it. Also, is there any way to modify a router to be useful as a cell/wifi blocker, or as a signal booster?<br />... <br /> ----From Yahoo Answers<br /><br /><br />To reset password on a Cisco/D-link/Linksys/Netgear router is a very common problem among people who want a secure network environment for surfing on the internet. If you are confused with the complicated procedure to reset or change the password on a router, or if you are trying to configure a Cisco router, but a password is blocking you from enable mode, don't worry, just do the steps as follows, password reset on a router is no longer upset to everyone.<br /><br />First, be informed that what you need:<br />.<a href="http://www.router-switch.com/Price-cisco-routers_c1">Cisco Router</a><br />.Computer<br />.Internet Connection<br />.Blue Serial Cable<br /><br />Guide for You to Reset Password on a Cisco Router:<br />1. Download a program called Putty from the first resource site below. PuTTy is a terminal emulator application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols (PuTTy on Wikipedia).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PuTTY<br /><br />2. Connect one end of the blue serial cable to the Cisco Router and the other to your computer. Open up the Putty program on your computer and select the radio button next to "serial" on the right-hand side of the start window. Click on the "Open" button in the bottom right-hand corner of the Putty start window to open the terminal.<br /><br />3. Power the Cisco Router on. As soon as the router begins loading in the green and black Putty terminal window, press the "Ctrl" and "Break" keys simultaneously until its going into rommon mode.<br /><br /><br />4. Once in rommon mode, you have to change the configuration register number to make the router boot from a blank configuration file. For the 2800 series Cisco Routers, the command "confreq 0x2142", changing the register number to 2142, worked. Search on cisco.com for information on your particular <a href="http://www.router-switch.com/Price-cisco-routers_c1">Cisco Router Series</a>.<br /><br />5. Type the restart command in rommon mode, which is "reset". This will boot the router up again. When it is finished, you should be able to type "en" to get into enable mode without a password.<br /><br />6. Once you change the running-config in RAM and save it to the startup-config in NVRAM, remember to change the configuration register number back to its default (usually 0x2102). This is important if you change anything on the running-config. <br /><br />Easy five steps help you finish resetting password on a Cisco router. Easy instruction, easy to follow. <br /><br />

What do I do if I forgot my password?


Well, if you forgot your password, you will need to completely reset the device to factory settings. There should be a recessed button on the back that is only accessible with a pin or paperclip. Press that and it will reset all of the settings to default.

Default password for a Cisco SG200-26? cisco, cisco do not work .. ??


I had the same issue after what I thought was a succesful reset. It turns out I hadn't reset the switch completely. There is a reset pin hole next to the power switch. Hold it in with a paper clip for at least 30 seconds. ( I was holding in the power button for 30 seconds.)Then you can use the cisco admin and cisco for password defaults. Hope this helps someone in the future since I spent WAY TOO MUCH TIME on it :)
