Here is a solution besides command prompt :

Reset the system If you can't find or remember the password, it's best if you just reset everything. All you need to do is press the reset button. Hold it for 90 seconds or so. Let the button go. This should allow you to reconfigure the system. If the system does not reset, press the button again. Hold it down for a couple of minutes and release. Check the manual for a guide on how to reconfigure the system.
To manage LinkSys router passwords, connect the Ethernet ports to the computer. Go online and log in to You'll see a dialog box appear. It will ask for the username and password. Just enter "admin" for both fields. In some cases only the password field needs an entry. Just enter "admin".

If this was helpful then give me the thumbs up if it wasn't ask the question in more detail describing your situation.

I am having url and other combos fail for Linksys wrt54gs. I am online with the Linksys but want to access and have a secure line rather than unsecured line. It is connected to our desktop...

To access the router setup, open an IE browser, on the address line: then press enter, you should be prompted for a username and password, leave the username blank, password is: admin, this should give you access to the router.
if for some reason that doesn't work, start, run, cmd, enter, this will open a command window and type the command IPCONFIG /ALL look up the default Gateway IP address and see if it is different. If the gateway is a different IP address, try that IP address

Unable to Connect to Internet

Make sure that the cable/dsl modem is connected to the blue port on the Linksys router that say's internet and your computer to any of the yellow ethernet ports. Check what is the IP address of your computer by typing ipconfig on the command prompt(assuming your using Windows, to open command prompt click start and go to Run and type cmd, a black windows will open normally it will say C:\Document\Settings\Owner>. Your computer should obtain an IP address of 192.168.1.x, open Internet Explorer and type this address on the address bar when you get a prompt for a username and a password, leave the username blank and type "admin" for a password from there you can now check the entire settings of your linksys router, check the Status and make sure your router is getting a valid Internet IP address if not you may require manually setting up the configuration of your ISP on the router.
