Try the default password just in case the changes you made were not stored for some reason.

If this does not give you access, try resetting the router to factory default by pressing and holding the Reset Button on the rear of the router for approximately 10 seconds. Use a toothpick or similar as the button is small and recessed into the case to avoid accidental resetting. You will need to reconfigure all settings though.

The default way to get into the router is to type 192.168.1.1 into the browser address, the user name is left blank and the password is admin

user manual is available from HERE You need to select the correct version number from the drop down.

I am unable to locate the key code for the WRT160N. when I try to go through the ipaddress admin as user and password will not work.


If you have not changed the password previously, leave the user name blank and use the password "admin".

If you have changed the password, you will have to reset the router and reconfigure it.

To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:
  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds.
Thi will set it back to the factory defaults. It will need to be reconfigured.

I want to change my router password


You can open a browser and put 192.168.1.1 on the address bar, that should open the Linksys user interface page, you would be asked for the current username and password to access the settings and get to where you can change the password. If you don't know what the current username and password is, you can hard reset the router by pushing the reset button on the back of the router for 10-15 seconds. After that you can try to access the Linksys user interface, login by leaving the username blank and the password is "admin"

I forget my linksys wrt160N password. how can i open that.


In case you have forgotten the password,
ALL YOU CAN DO IS TO RESET THE ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS
You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. It may be a push botton or else use a paper pin to press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please not that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN



HOPE IT HELPS...Let me know if you need any further assistance

Cant get to the password 192.168.1.1 it just keeps taking me to the pages


First you much login to your router. Open browser and enter the 192.168.1.1 in the URL section of the browser and press enter. Then the browser should bring up a login screen. If you have not changed the password, your login and password are admin and admin. Once you are into the setup, you need to look for the administration section of the setup. In there you can reset your password.

Please leave feedback if this solves your problem.
