    I have the same problem. had this connected to an old PC and when I connect to new pc the password is filled in and when I click next it checks the computer and reverts back to this same window with the password in it. What is upsetting is I know the password. I called Linksys and it costs $30 for them to tell me how to retrieve it from the Linksys box. Unbelievable!

    Okay. Are you connecting directly to this router with a ethernet cable or trying to connect using wireless? What's the brand of router you are using?

  • Bill Kindle May 11, 2010

    Are you setting this up for the first time? If so I may be of some assistance.

Okay, if you have not setup a password for it the default on most linksys routers is this:

Username - admin

Password - admin


if that doesn't work then try just the password and no username. This will get you to the router admin page.


But let me ask you this, does your computer access the internet right now on that computer?

When my ipod tries to connect to my computer wirelessly, it asks for the password. I enter it, but it won't accept password. It finds the router ok, just says password is incorrect. I've checked and it's the right one. Any suggestions?

How can we password protect this router? Linkysy wrt54 Thank you!


This will be a bit lengthy, as we'll need to find out some information first.

On a computer that's connected to the network, it can be wired or wireless:

WINDOWS
1. Open your Start menu.
2. If it's Windows 7 or Vista, simply type in cmd and hit [Enter]. If it's Windows XP, click Run, then type cmd and hit [Enter].
3. Type ipconfig and hit [Enter].
4. Find the line that says "Default Gateway:" near the top. Write down that number.

MACINTOSH
1. Click anywhere on the desktop.
2. In the bar at the top of your screen, click Go, and choose Applications.
3. Select Utilities.
4. Open Terminal.
5. Type ipconfig and hit [Enter].
6. Find the line that says "Default Gateway:" near the top. Write down that number.

Now it's the same regardless of operating system.
  1. Open any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.)
  2. In the address bar, type in ONLY the number you wrote down above. There should be no "www."
  3. If it asks for user name and password, the default is Username: admin ' Password: admin
  4. Click on the Wireless tab on top.
  5. Under that, click on the Wireless Security tab.
  6. Set Security Mode to WPA2 if possible (it may say WPA2-Personal). Otherwise, use WPA.
  7. Set your passphrase, and click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
You now have your password! On all computers connected wirelessly, you'll have to tell them to connect to the network again and enter the password. It will save the password after the first time so you don't have to do it again.

If you ever lose this password, there is a tiny red button on the back of the router. Hold that in with a pen and it will completely reset the router, wiping out all settings including password.

The wireless sign on my router is not lit up blue like the rest of them. I can still use the internet, just not wireless


follow the steps below you are looking for the tab wireless and you want to enable it will ask you if you want wep or other options pick your security and dont forget the key you may have to reset the router by pushing the button on the back



To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

How do I find my Network Key..or Password


If you forgot or do not know teh network / passkey of your wireless router you have to follow the following procedure to know the password (i am assuming that you have windows)

1. Connect your router directly to your computer (disconnect your cable / DSL internet from the router)
2. Use the Switch ports (ports marked 1 to 4 to connect to your computer / Do not use the internet port or WAN port in your router to connect to the computer)
3. Open command prompt (Start - Run - Type CMD and hit enter
4. Type IPCONFIG and hit enter. (not down the numbers next to Default gateway (it should be in the format 192.168.1.1 etc).
5. Type exit and hit enter
6. Open the internet explorer and type the default gateway you noted and hit enter
7. You should get a small popup asking for username & password - type
admin (username)
password (password) if this does not work (type admin for password also)

if this username and password does not work then you need to reset the router. (Please refer to the manual for this process)

8. if the username & password works you should be able to access the router page, then you need to click on wireless settings on the router page and then know or change your wireless passkey.

Please reply to the post if you need further assistance.

Forgotten password



Go to Safe mode using the F8 key.

( Shut down the computer --> Now turn on the system and keep tapping the F8 key on the system.--> you will receive the windows Advance option--> choose the Safe mode option and hit enter--> choose the your operating system and hit enter..)

In safe mode if the computer prompts to enter the Administrator account --> Do not put any thing and hit enter --> that means use Blank Password and hit enter. If it works perfect follow the further steps. If it does not choose another account if exist.

In safe mode :-

steps 1:-

click on start--> run-->control userspasswords2 hit enter. Now the window which opens up--> uncheck the option which says :- Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer.
after unchecking it hit apply button at the botton and hit ok.

Now when you restart the computer will not ask you the Password and will take you directly to the Account.

once you are in you can remove the Password through the user accounts in control panel.

Try this and let me know if it works...!

I can't get to my router and open up the NAT thing. It keeps on restricting me from XBL. Please help.


In order for you to do that you have to connect to your router first as in login to it. Find your routers default password and login to it from your browser. To get your routers ip address go to start>run>cmd and type ipconfig. Where it says deafult gateway that is your routers ip address. After you get that you put that ip address into your browser then hit ENTER and it will ask for the password enter it and then you will be able to configure your router as well as the NAT settings
