Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Sep 16, 2013 | NetGear Computers & Internet
Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.
If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com
Resetting your router
If the default username and password doesn't work it's likely you or someone whose setup your router has enabled a password that has been forgotten. Thankfully most routers will have a small pinhole button on the back or bottom of the router (like that shown in the picture to the right), pressing this button in and holding on this button for 10-15 seconds will hard reset the router. After this has been done setup the router again and enter a username and password that you can write down.
hope this helps
