Please reset the router by pressing the reset button while your router should be plugged in to the power cable.
While reseting the router the lights on the router should be blinking for 30 seconds.
Try this this should work.

SOURCE: the default username and password to configure router doesnt work

Try to turn off your modem first before trying to open the router's setup page. By default, there's no username and the password is admin. Also turn off any firewall you have.

Factory restore


According to Linksys support, you should not reset your WRT120n wireless router unless you are having difficulties with the unit. The WRT120n user guide also recommends applying other troubleshooting options before attempting to reset the device. Resetting the WRT120n restores the router back to factory defaults. After resetting the Linksys 120n, you''ll have to reconfigure the router back to your preferred settings.

Locate the Reset button on the back panel of the WRT120n. The button is labeled "Reset" and situated between the power port and the "1" Ethernet port. Press and hold down the "Reset" button for five seconds. The device resets. Open a Web browser on your computer. Type "192.168.1.1" into the browser's address field, then press "Enter" on your keyboard. A login prompt opens. Enter "admin" as the password. Leave the User Name field blank, then click "OK" to log in to your router and access your network settings.

Forgot my password for wrt120n


Looking for the Linksys WRT120N default password? You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the WRT120N default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WRT120N default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WRT120N, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WRT120N default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WRT120N default password, you can also see the WRT120N default username and WRT120N default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WRT120N default password may be different for certain hardware orfirmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WRT120N version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WRT120N version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WRT120N to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WRT120N password.
Help! The WRT120N Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WRT120N, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WRT120N default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WRT120N will be the same as the default gateway IP address configured for your network connection.

See How To Find the Default Gateway IP Address for help.

In situations where the WRT120N default password or WRT120N default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WRT120N to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WRT120N manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WRT120N from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WRT120N default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WRT120N default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.

Reset password to the router and get a new one


Are you trying to reset the router password or wireless network password?
Wireless network password is different than router access password.
To change the wireless password, you will need to access the router page and change the settings.
See how to find wireless network password
To change the router access password, you can log in to router page and go to administration tab. There you will find the place to change the router password.

I want to change my id user name & password for WRT120N. But I also can't find the program in my computer. Please assit me. Thanks,


In order to access your WRT120N control panel UNDER FACTORY SETTINGS, you must navigate to http://192.168.1.1 in your web browser.

According to Cisco's support site, the default username for the WRT120N will be NULL (left blank) and the password will be "admin".

Once you reach the control panel, navigate to the 'Administration' section, where you should be able to change your username and password.

NOTE: If this does not work, you may want to look into performing a factory reset of your device.
