There's not a way to recover a password on a linksys router--I would try the default admin and admin

If that doesn't work your only solution is to hold the reset button down for 30 seconds to reset it to factory defautls, then login with admin and admin on 192.168.1.1

Select forgotten password/details and hopefully if you can answer your own security question you will be able to reset your password or have the old password sent to an alternative email address.

If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and configure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it'sEthernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URLhttp://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
LinkSys Default Password
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." While newer models, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you go past the login screen, you should be able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default usernames:

Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
Linksys WRT54G, BEFW11S4: admin
Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
All other Linksys routers: {none}
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default passwords:
Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
Linksys BEFW11S4: {none}
All other Linksys routers: admin
For those [none] username/password entries listed above, no name or password is required. Just skip or press the Enter/Return key when prompted for those settings.

I have linksys wireless router and am trying to get wi fi on a recently purchased Kindle but Have forgotten my Linksys password. Please help


Hi nancylousdol,

If you have forgotten your password you can reset the router to its factory state and setup a new password for it. Resetting the router will wiped out all changes that have been saved. To reset the router, look for the small hole at the back of it. Press and hold it for 10-15 seconds using a Pen or Paperclip. Then access the router settings page so that you can personalize the settings.

For you to access your router you need a working computer that is connected to the router and open a browser type 192.168.1.1 to he address bar and it will ask you for a username and password. The default username is "leave it blank" and the default password is admin.

Rate me if this helps so i can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya

I changed my password but I forgot it


Do you have a Linksys router and you have forgotten your password or you want to reset the password to the default. Firstly you must have physical access to the router. This article is basically for WRT54g and model BEFW11S4
If you have changed the password from the default password and have forgotten the default or your router did not come with any documentation.
To regain access to the router try the following. In the username field leaveit blank and in the password field type admin

Username / leave blank
password / admin

The Rest Button on a Linksys Router

To reset the router
While the back of your router might look different, the reset button is usually clearly marked. To reset the router to the default password, insert something thin--like a pencil point--and depress the red button. Hold that for a few seconds. The password for your Linksys router should have reverted to its default.
Try accessing it from a machine that is plugged directly into it. The default address is usually http://192.168.1.1. When you gain access to the router then you can change the password to any word of your choice.

Go here http://www.linksysbycisco.com/UK/en/support and enter the actual model number of the modem in the search box. Look for a link to the manual and it should tell you how to reset the modem completely in there.

Admin isn't working for the default password. Any workarounds?


The Linksys default login = admin
and the default PW = admin.
If you have forgotten the changed password the you can reset the Linksys back to the factory default by power up the Linksys and pressing the pinhole RESET button at the back of the Linksys for 30 secs. Then enter the configuration URL and configure the Linksys with a new password plus the wireless SSID and encryption etc.

Password forgotten


What you need to do here is to get the Wireless security from your Linksys router by accessing its setup page, Just type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar of your working computer then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the user name blank and type admin for password. If you're already on the router setup page you will see there Wireless tab just go to it and after that go to Wireless security sub tab under wireless and you can find there the wireless key that you need..

If that wont work contact me back for further help....

Don't forget to rate the solution FIXYA thank you...............
