Remember, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people who ask questions....only kidding.

The reset button will refresh connections if pressed quickly. The manual says to hold it for "a few seconds" to perform a complete reset. A complete reset will return it to factory defaults. It's IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and when you login username should be left blank and the password will be "admin" with no quotation marks. It wll also be set to DHCP and there will be no security.

As far as re-starting your computer, there is no reason to do this, but...if your computer expects the router's address to be something other than 192.168.1.1 or if it's set up to expect a static IP configuration you'll need to change some things on the computer.

I want you to know that I don't get paid for providing these suggestions. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like trying to help. If you found this information helpful I hope you'll rate it positively. If it does not help please ask more questions, I'd be happy to help more. Thanks, and good luck.

There are 2 ways to reset the information on the Linksys WRT54GS.
One is by using its web interface and the other is by using the reset button on the back part of the device.
The reset option is the easiest and fastest, you will need a small pin/paperclip as it is a inset button.
Follow the procedure below:
1) Turn on the device.
2) Press and hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds.(IMPORTANT: Make sure that the Power LED of the router is blinking when you press the Reset button. This indicates that the router is being reset properly.)
3)After pressing the Reset button, unplug and re-plug the router's power adapter.

I am having trouble connecting my Samsung BD-C6500 DVD Bluray to my older Linksys G model WRT54GS ROUTER. HOW DO I FIND MY ACCESS CODE AND/OR PASSWORD TO THIS ROUTER.


Unfortunately, you can't find your Wireless Access Code of your router without knowing the password to access your router configuration. It is because, you can only see the Wireless Access Code by going to the router configuration page and in order to go to the router configuration page, you should know the router password.

You should reset your router to default. In order to do this, you can press the Reset button at the back of your router for 30 seconds. Then you can try to use the user name "admin" and password is "blank" or password or admin as well.
