Hi Aidita,

In the back of the WRT54G is a smal hole, labled Reset. Straighten out a paperclip, or use a toothpick, and gently press the small switch in there Hold it in for about 30 sec. Then recycle the router. Plug a machine into the ports in the back marked LAN, and power it up. This sets your router to factory defaults, and your new username should be admin, and leave the password blank.
You may have to try the reset a few time. As last restort, try holding the little button in and unplugging and plugging the router back in.
If you need an online manual, to help you with the setup, let us know.
Good luck!

Forgot the password

If you have forgotten the password and haven't set it, try using no password. The default password is blank and the default username is Admin. If this does not work and you have no way of guessing your password, you will need to reset your router. This should only be done if you know your broadband username and password as it will wipe to blank if you reset and you will need to type them in again.

I forgot the password and username,and i want to change the security password of my router what shall i do?

If you have forgotten the router's password then you have to reset the router to factory default to access the interface again. Then you can use the router's default user name and password, that is admin and admin (or username: " " (leave it blank) and password: admin (all in lower case)

You can find the default passwords on the following website;

Once you have logged in to the router console, you can set new security password

I forgot the wifi password

The default password is "admin" with the username as "admin" as well. If you have changed the password and forgotten it, then feel free to reset the router to factory settings by keeping the Reset button on the router pressed for more than 30 seconds.

Linksys routers are simple home based or small network based routers. So unless you have set up your router for some special functions, you won't lose anything that you can't set up again.

Forgot password

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.


if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

hope this helps

Hi ,
I got your issue, Inorder to reset the username and password to the default setting the only way is to reset the router , look on the router you will have a pin hole button, push that reset button for 10 -20 sec. Then you can login to the router using username 'smcadmin', password - 'admin' or 'blank'.

Thanks & Regards,

Forgot the password... need to reset it

If you're talking about the password to get in the router setup page that you have forgotten, the only way to reset it is to press and hold the reset button of the router for 10 seconds while power is ON and it will be back to its default settings with default username and password.

Forgot my password


Most of the NETGEAR devices have the following default username and password except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches:
  • Username is always admin
  • Password is password or (for older devices) 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Forgot password to add new computer to router


Press the reset button for 10 seconds. It set the factory default
settings. The router will erase all information, the DSL settings too.

After that you can login in with the default password, via web

username: admin
password: admin

The default username and password is admin/admin.
I hope it hekos.

Forgotten pw

There is no way to access the router without resetting it. You must reset the router, and make a new username or password. Sorry!

If you want, the only setting you need to set is to change your local IP address to (IF you have DSL.)
