Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

RESET PASSWORD I've been trying to access my router's GUI. the window that prompts me to enter username and password pops up but when I type in the default password ( admin) i still cannot get through. I was wondring if it's possible to reset the password to its default ( admin )? I may have changed the default already but totally forgot if I ever did.

Press the rest botten in the back for 25 sec. This should set it back. You can also call the company for free and they can tell you if this does not work.

Where do I get the code


Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings.

Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all.

As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else.

You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed.

Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

This can be done by opening your internet browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc.) and typing in the address bar 192.168.1.1.

Once you hit enter, an authentication panel would pop-up requiring you to enter a username and password.
Note: If entering 192.168.1.1 does not bring up anything, your default gateway may not be that.

For Windows, just go to Run command (Windows Start button, then click Run), and then type "CMD".
A DOS prompt would pop-out and you would just need to type, "IPCONFIG". Look for the words "Default Gateway", the numbers beside it are the ones you need to enter into your browser

Usually, its 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 so most likely you wouldn't have to do that.
Another Note: The usual username and password is "admin" (without the quotes).
For some routers, the username is admin, and the password is blank.

The gui setup wizard is not popping up/opening and i cannot access www.asusrouter.com


If you're using Windows, plug the ASUS device in via wired (ethernet). Hit Start, then type in CMD, then type in ipconfig. Look for wired local area connection. Do you see 10.0.1.1? That's probably the ASUS. Now, type that in your browser. Voila, the GUI should pop up. It worked for me.

How can i recover my wifi password


You must log into the router using the routers internal ip address. Open your default browser (eg: internet explorer or google chrome) and enter 192.168.1.1 into the address bar, press enter. You will be prompted to provide a username and password, use admin for both, press enter and the Linksys GUI will pop up. You will need to navigate to the wireless settings tab and either write down your current password or change it. Make certain that you save all current settings before exiting the GUI.

Hello i have reset my router and now cannot reconnect to The internet i have no idea what the username/ passwords ate


From my understanding you have lost or forgotten your wireless password and or router login settings. You are able to reset this to factory default by locating the reset pin in the back. Once this is located you are going to want to grab a pin, paper clip, something of this sort. You will want to insert this object into the reset hole for 30 seconds and release. Your router should be back to default. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password. With the defualt settings your password may be blanked out. You are able to setup your wireless network name and password again. I hope this has helped

Want to remove code to modem


Press the reset button in the back of the router for 30 seconds with a sharp object (an unbent clip for instance) to reset the modem to factory settings. This will remove the router password and any protection settings. For detailed instructions with images, check this FAQ: Resetting the Linksys Router to Factory Default to remove .

Next, open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter.
A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password. enter the new settings.
Check this FAQ: Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page and the other mentioned at the itsend.

How to set up security to the router DI 524,


To open the gui of the router open internet explorer and in the addres bar type 192.168.0.1 and hit enter. You would be prompted for a username and password. The default username as admin and password as <blank> for the unit.

Try this, in case you are not able to access the UI of the unit with the username and password try pressing the reset button on the unit for 20 seconds. This would restore factory defaults on the device, once done try to access the ui of the device as explained above

DELL E6400 Connect to wireless Modem problem


I have the EXACT same problem on the same computer.
I'm not an expert so I searched online but didn't really find a lot of responses to this Dell issue. One suggestion was to turn off Intel PROset and let Windows manage the wireless connection.
That worked for me.
When in the Intel PROset menu, click on Advanced, then click on "Let windows manage your wireless set-up."
Alternatively, you can toggle between the two software by pressing F10.
This solution worked for me.

If I reset my router, do I need the CD to reconfigure or change the password


You don't actually need the CD to reconfigure your router or change the password or anything related to your router. So long as the router is connected to your computer via ethernet cable you can access the browser configuration page of your router.

1. connect your router to your computer via ethernet cable

2. If you are using Windows XP
- click start
- click run
- type cmd
- in the black screen type ipconfig and press enter
- look for the default gateway (example 192.168.1.1)
- Open Internet explorer
- type in the address bar: http://the default gateway (example http://192.168.1.1) then press enter and it'll ask you for the password
- usually the username is blank and the password is admin or the username is admin and the password is pass or password

If you are using Windows Vista / Windows 7
- Click the pearl button
- Click on start search at the bottom of the pop-up window
- type cmd (don't press enter yet)
- right click the black icon on the top of the window after typing cmd
- click on the run as administrator
- click on continue if there's a prompt
- in the black screen type ipconfig and press enter
- look for the default gateway (example 192.168.1.1)
- Open Internet explorer
- type in the address bar: http://the default gateway (example http://192.168.1.1) then press enter and it'll ask you for the password
- usually the username is blank and the password is admin or the username is admin and the password is pass or password

After successful accessing the configuration page you can now configure your router freely.
