Not really unless you enable your WEP settings then you will have a more secure line.....making a new passkey is required though...anyone who would like to connect to your router needs to enter this key makin it more secure and controlled...

In order for you to do this you need to reset your router to the default settings ....

Firstyou have to look for a small button at the back of the router, this isthe reset button...while the router is plugged press this button forlet say ten seconds then....follow the instructions on the linkbelow-----go to page sixteen(16)

Good Luck!!!! If you need more help, I could be of further assistance. If this helps or solves the problem, please rate it. Thanks, JCE

Forgot password

Router passwords cannot be easily or quickly obtained, your best option is to reset the router and from there create a new key.
To reset:

With the router on, hold down the "reset" button on the back for 10 seconds. This will reset your password and restore factory default settings.

If this is the router your referring too and you forgot your security number for the wireless can hold the reset button in on the router for 45 seconds and that will do a factory reset on the router, erasing all the security settings. You will have access to the web, but your security will be down and you will have to reset all those settings again.

How to change my security password for my computer because I forgot my password and I own a linksys router wrt54g THANKS FOR THE INFO

This answer is not specific to your router but, most wireless router have a 'reset' button on the back. You need to have physical access to the router. It cannot be done remotely. You will probably have to insert a pin or paperclip through a small hole in the back to reset it. You will lose all settings. Then you can log into the router, using the default settings, and set a new password.
