On the back of the router is a recessed reset button......press and hold the button with a ball point pen for 15 secs.....when the router powers back up it should be back to default default username (leave login name blank) and default passsword : Admin
got that? username is blank and the password will be "admin" after you have reset the router.......now when u access it, pick a password, right it on a sheet of paper and tape it to the back of the router and you will never have this problem again!!! :D
Good Luck and please rate this post!!!!!!!

Default user name and password is "admin"
Otherwise, you can use the reset button on the back to restore the default settings including the default password.

Why can't I get my tablet PC to connect with my new Linksys Wireless-N Home Router?


Hello, Try troubleshooting:1) Does it have a password on your router?2) If so remove password and try connecting to it
Some electronics cant work to connect to WiFi if its protected by a tough security such as WPA2-TKIP.

Forgot my password on my linksys wireless G broadband and i cant sign in from my laptop


yippers, that happens, use your cell phone number next time. So you need to log into the router and create new wireless security password, and change channel to 11 or so and free up interference with wireless land line phones.

I forgot my username and password and want to create a VPN or remote connection


If you've forgotten the username and password, there is really no viable solution other than resetting the router. All the software can be found on linksys' website, along with manuals for reconfiguring your router. Breakout your trusty paperclip and press the reset button on the back of the router. Reconfiguring should only take a few minutes. The default username will be "admin" and the default password is "password" (both without the quotes.)

Manual

No software is actually required to install the router. Any information needed will be in the manaul, provided above.

Hope this helps!

Resetting router will revert back to factory default settings. If you had special settings then you will have to set those back up.

Default password to get into the Linksys routers. Username is blank, password is admin.

You will have to setup the wireless portion again after reset.

Forgot the password!


There's a hard reset button on the back of the unit. Depress it with a pin for about 15 seconds and release. You may have to power cycle the router (unplug the power for about 15 seconds then plug back in). That reset button will set the router back to factory defaults and from there, you can log in with "admin" (minus the quotes) for the username and the password of "password" (minus the quotes). You'll want to change these under the Administration tab of your router configuration.
