Linksys RV042 10/100 4 port vpn router keeps dropping connections. Is there a fix I have spent a lot of money with various poeple to help and no fix yet.


The problem with the router firmware can cause various disconnection issues. For solving these issues you have to reset your wireless router to its factory default settings. Do not forget to configure a new password after you have reset your router, otherwise anyone will be able to use your network. Also, ensure that you remove all the malware infections from your computer.

I forgot password of my linksys rv042 vpn router how can i recover it without resting the router becoz they have a some special configuration on this. thanks gil


Login to the default router config page from your desktop pc. This is usually plugged straight into the router via a network cable. Go to http://192.168.1.1 in w web browser. Default login is usally "Admin/Admin" or "Admin/Password" keep trying different combos.

You may may have no choice but to "Reset" the router. The button is on the back of it. Just press it and hold it

you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router Password: Admin
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router
