Here is a link to the manual for your device - it should show you how to reset it and tell you the default password - if you have your own password then you must reset it to get back to the default password - hope this solves your problem -

Forgot my router password

To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Connecting second laptop to my Belkin Wireless G router

I don't know the model of your router this would be very helpful. Most routers have a reset button on the back of the router. This will reset your router back to factory default settings.This will reset the pasword to default usually "admin". You will need to set up your router all over again. Let me know the model and I can send you a link for installation of your router.

Router password

Before following this procedure beware that the reset function on the router will probably reset the entire configuration to the factory original. You will probably need to completely reconfigure your router after the reset including WAN side IP address or dynamic and possibly PPPoE userid and password if required by your ISP.

click on the following link

select your region and country

Select Choose a Product

Enter your product or navigate to it.

Download your user guide.

It should have instructions for resetting the router as well as reconfiguring the router.
