    I tried the admin admin along with user user per the PFD  and it didn't work.  I've tried the reset button and that doesn't do any thing to the box.  I think I now have a large paper weight!!!!!!

The user name : password is normally admin : admin

To reset the router try holding the reset button on the back of the box for about 10 sec. (make sure the power is on while doing this)

I found that the login credential uses a capital 'A' in Admin and also in the Password. (Admin/ Admin)

I need my d-link wireless password to connect to an I pod touch, I had it written down but it must be wrong and the touch wont recognize the wireless.

If you don't remember the password for your wireless you will need to do a hard reset on the router and restore it back to factory defaults.

Press and hold the reset button at the back for 30 seconds. The router will reboot and you should be able to login to the config page at with the user name "admin" and no password

you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.

Paradyne problem 6218

If the address you mention is correct, try reseting the router first, (normally a little hole at back), then typing in again, although most routers have a 192.168.x.x reference and not 198.168.x.x as you mention.
