My LINKSYS as for password, it is locked


Press and hold the reset button of the Linksys router using a pointed object (like a paper clip or pen) for 30 seconds.


The reset button is located in the back of the Linksys router closest to an Ethernet port.

The button is recessed to protect you from accidentally resetting the modem.


Unplug the Linksys router while pressing the reset button.


Shut down your computer for one minute.


Plug the Linksys router back into the wall outlet.


Reboot your computer.


Open your web browser to access a website.

Type the below in the address bar if you want to reset your password:

http://192.168.1.1


A prompt from the site will request a user name and password.

The user name stays blank, or, in some models, is "admin".


Navigate to the security tab. Input your new password to protect unauthorized access to your router


hope this helps

I am trying to get my smartphone to use my wifi network but says locked or secured with wep. i dont know how to find that. i am using linksys wireless. help please


You need to log on to Linksys router to find the password or you can use with no password by resetting the router.
To get on to Linksys router connect the router to your computer with ethernet cable using one of the LAN ports on the router. Open a web browser on your computer and type 192.168.1.1. That will ask you a user ID and password. Leave the user id blank and type admin in password section. Once you are on router open page click on wireless and then security which will take you to router wireless password. Type that password on your smartphone to get internet access on smart phone! Good luck!!

I want lock my linksys


1
Open your web browser.

2
Go to "http://192.168.1.1." This is the URL of your Linksys router's settings utility.

3
Sign in using the router's user name and password. You assigned this information yourself when you initially set up the browser.

4

Click "Wireless," then "Security."

5
Click on the drop-down menu you see on screen and select "WEP." This is a form of encryption for the wireless signal on your router. Type a word or phrase into the box below and click "Generate." This will turn the word or phrase you have selected into an encrypted password. Write down the password that is generated, as you will immediately need it to connect to your wireless network. When you're finished, click "Save." Your Linksys router (and the wireless network it broadcasts) are now locked down.

Thanks.

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.

Upon typing the address of your linksys router (usually by default it is 192.168.0.1) your default Username and Password Admin:admin or Admin:password (depends on the model). Then, when you are able to view your router's control panel, click on "Administration" tab. From there type in your new password and confirm it by re typing. Click "Save Changes" button to apply the new password.

Password problem


On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin." Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router
