Reset your Linksys router back to default:
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).


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Here ya go this should help you out. I think the username is admin and the password is blank...depends on the model. Let me know if you need more help. Don't forget to rate this solutio with 4 stars before logging out. The default login information for Linksys routers depends on the model as shown below. Default user names:

  • Linksys BEFW11S4, WRT54G: admin
  • Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
  • Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
  • All other Linksys routers: [none]
Default passwords:
  • Linksys BEFW11S4: [none]
  • Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
  • All other Linksys routers: admin
Where the word [none] is listed above, no name or password is required. Simply skip or press the Enter/Return key when prompted for those settings

The default password (or the password which has been set by you previously) is not getting accepted by the router either due to firmware issues or simply because you might have been entering the wrong password. Hence the above error.

Please try the following:

1. First you need to hard reset the router. Press and hold the 'Reset' button with a sharp object for 90 seconds continuously. The first 30 seconds of the reset process should be with the power cable of the router plugged in, the next 30 seconds with the power cable unplugged and the final 30 seconds the router should be reset with the power cable of the router plugged in.

However, remember to hold the RESET button continuously for the entire 90 seconds, even as you plug/unplug the power cable. This should reset the router to factory defaults.

2. Then try to access the router's web interface 192.168.1.1. Generally, there is no username by default for linksys router. The default password for the linksys router is "admin"

Since the router has been hard reset in step 1, step 2 should work and you should be able to access your router's web interface.

I hope this helps. If it does, kindly rate the solution.

Depends on age of router. Older ones had blank username and "admin" for password. Newer ones have "admin" for both username and password. Of course this is only if you've totally reset the router to it's factory defaults.

You must never pass on your password. Normally one needs the user name and password. That is it, you're in.

My windows is in spanish,forgot my password help


If you're under Windows XP you can try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Canc twice at the login screen, a Windows will pop up asking you to type in a valid username and password. In the username field type "Administrator" (without quotes), leaving the password blank. If the Administrator account is not disabled and still has the default (blank!) password, the system will continue to load. Then go to the control panel and delete the password for your locked account, logout from the Administrator account and log back in from the account that was locked.
This only works under Windows 2000-XP.
Or consider using Kon-Boot (commercial) or other similar utilities.

SSS i forgot my user ID and password? i cannot open my account? how to reset my sss account? email: julian.dehar@yahoo.com


Unfortunately, no one but you (unless you entrusted it to other people, you can ask THEM) could possibly know your own username and password.

Right below the Member Login box, you'll have to click "Forgot User ID or Password? Click Here" and input the EMAIL ADDRESS you used upon registration so they can email you your username and password or a password reset link.

Check your email afterwards. Just follow the instructions in the email: they're fairly straightforward.

Unlock Windows password with Windows built-in Administrator account.

Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:
Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

Besides, Windows Password Reset is a great choice .

Wireless will not accept key or password using intel pro set wireless


Hello.

To find the key you need to log into the router. In a browser, type http://192.168.2.1 (depending on your network, this could be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1) in the address bar. A username and password box will appear. Try leaving them blank or key in Admin with a blank password. Look for wireless setup. Just browse through and you'll see the WEP key or passphrase. Then, change the key.

You can get all this info if you go to Start-> (type) RUN, then (type) CMD. Then type ipconfig. Whatever your gateway number is that is the number to your router

Hope this resolves your problem.

Problem with the startup when turn it on


You mean a BIOS password? or a password on your Windows account.

In case of BIOS password: you need to reset the CMOS (Chip that holds data for BIOS). You can do this by removing the CMOS battery or use a reset switch/jumper on your motherboard. If this is the case tell me and I'll walk you through it.

In case of Windows: Boot until logon screen. If it's the blue welcome screen press Ctrl + Alt + Del 3 times until a small login box appears. Type the following:

Username: Administrator
Password: the password set at install, or is most case: leave blank.

Once logged in, go to Control Panel > User Accounts. Select your user and change the password.

I hope this helps solving your problem.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
