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.

Forget my password


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

  • Step 3 After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your nosy neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. I am picking up 4 networks with my pc antenna.

    I can't connect to 192.168.2.1


    The default IP address for this router is 192.168.1.1. If you haven't changed it to 192.168.2.1, give it a try.
    Just my 2 cents... Carlos

    Can see the wireless network, but can not find the password to log on.


    Do you know how to access your linksys router? Do you know the password on the linksys router?

    If not you will need to reset the linksys to restore the password to it's default and then reconfigure the router from scratch.

    To reset the router use a ballpoint pen end press 10 seconds on the reset button in the back (ATTENTION: YOU WILL NEED TO RECONFIGURE THE ROUTER)

    Once you reset it the password to access the router is admin. Connect to the router using a cat5 cable, point your browser to : http://192.168.1.1
    leave the user field empty and type admin in the password field.
    You can now go ahead and reconfigure it.

    I do not have my user name an pass word to connedt another computor we have. All of our computors are contected but I lost the paper with password


    If you have forgotten your username and password, the best way to correct your issue is to reset the router and setup a new username and password.

    Linksys reset
    The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router’s password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe

    Reconfiguration


    Do you have the administrator password for the router?

    If yes,
    • Browse to 192.168.1.1 on any machine connected to the wireless network. Or using a direct cable connection to the router.
    • Under the Wireless tab click on Wireless Security.
    • There you will find your shared key in plain text
    If you do not have the administrator password for the router. Check any machine that already is connected to the wireless network. Check the connection settings and find the shared key. Usually there is a checkbox to show the key in plain text.

    If that is not possible, you will need to reset your router and reconfigure everything from the beginning.
