After trying for a long time i decided to call customer support, they informed me there is no default user name, the only option you have is to reset the router by pressing the reset button for at least a minute than when you go into the configuration ip address you will be prompted to enter a new user name and password

How to password protect router


To set the admin password on the router, log into it from your web browser using its IP address (normally 192.168.1.1) (type the IP address in the address bar of your bowser). You will be prompted to log in with a user name and password (defalt is admin for both).
Under the Administration tab you can change the router password. Type in the new password in the space provided and then confirm it. At the bottom of the page click save settings. You will now be prompted for the new user name and password when you log in (user name: admin Password: what ever you selected)

If you want to place an encrypt the wireless signal, look under the wireless tab then security. You can then select the type of encryption and the key here. Click save settings at the bottom of the screen.

Make sure you have the above information writen down and/or stored somewhere you can find it. If you need to make anyother changes, or need to connect a new device to the wireless, you will need one or both of these.

If this is helpfull please rate.

How do i reset my wireless router, cause i dont remember my password?


Hi enaral100 !

Here is the back view of your router:
omerk.gif

As you can see, there is a reset button.
From USR website:

To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

Best of luck,
omer.

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router


heres the online installation manual http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-ug/index.html
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

Password


If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.
