Assuming there is none now, just open the interface 192.168.1.1, or 1.0, type admin in the second line that is the default password. If it already has one just reset it from the reset button on the router and start fresh with admin 2nd line. Leave top line alone, unless you want another thing to remember. The real encryption is the Key and mode you pick wpa, is fine

My password doesnt work anymore


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

I log into my router, try to change my username and put a WEP password on it. Click apply, reboot my router but it doesnt save my settings?


I don't think most routers allow you to change the login username, only the login password and the SSID & login passcode/passphrase of your wireless network. Have you checked for firmware upgrades to your router?

My wireless router doesnt connect to a wireless netowork. I played with the security settings and now i dont know what they originaly were and i forgot my password and login. please help


You will need to "hard reset" your router. This will put it to the default factory settings.

Hold the reset button in for 30 seconds. You will then need to log on the router through the admin website:

192.168.1.1 and the login/password will be admin/admin and you'll be able to change your settings.

In regards to your first statement, the wireless router creates the wireless network. It connects to the Internet through the cable modem (or dsl) and provides an access point for wireless devices.

I need to complet my router setup


Have you secured your Linksys from unauthorized access?
The encryption code protects your wireless router from unauthorized access. The wireless card in your computer/laptop needs to be configured with the router's encryption settings before the computer/laptop can access the router.
For details on configuring the wireless router and the wireless card, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I need help trying to put a password


By default, Username is "admin" without the quotes and Password is left blank. Once you are in configuration, you can change the default Username and Password to whatever you choose, then hit "Apply" to save it.

If neither of those options works, do a complete reset of your router by holding a small object into the reset button located in back for 30 seconds while plugged in and continue to hold it another 30 seconds while unplugged. Reconnect everything and try the steps above again.
