Try to reset the Linksys router. The reset button is commonly located at the back of the router and its a small whole that you need a pen to reset it. The drivers cane be download at http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54GL/download
Things to do are:
1. Connect your router to the computer using ethernet cable (RJ45)2. Press and hold the Reset Button for approximately five seconds (this will reset it to factory settings)
3. On you computer open internet explorer and on the address bar type Router’s default IP address 192.168.1.1
4. A password request screen will appear by default Username field blank and the default password admin

Now you can configure your Linksys router

You can download/install the software for it (ideally you still have the CD) and run it. You can connect to the router via an ethernet cable and set the password to what ever you want

When i put in default username and password says its not authorized


Try admin in user anme and admin in password.
If that doesn't work then try admin in only password, leave the user name blank.
If that doesn't work then try some different passwords that you use often.
If nothing is working then you will need to reset the router.
Once you reset the router, you will lose all the settings on the router and you will need to reconfigure it.

Hook it to your PC with an ethernet cord and type 192.168.1.1 into your browser address bar. user name is admin and password is admin.

Establishing a password for a linksys router


Most Linksys routers can be accessed using your web browser by typing this into the address bar (Hook your computer into the router using an ethernet (network) cable):

192.168.1.1

Here are a few typical login passwords to try:

User: admin
Password: password

User: admin
Password: admin

User: (leave blank)
Password: admin

User: (leave blank)
Password: password

Once you are logged into the router, you can visit the settings page to change the login password, or the Wireless Security page to change the wifi password.

Can't get to IP address to fix 323 error on Linksys WRT54G2


If admin password is not working, it might have been changed to something else. Try to type any password that you can think of. If none works, you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds, plug it back in then try to access the 192.168.1.1 page again, that should do it for admin as the password, no username.

How can i configure the router WRT150-N


Access the router setup page by opening a browser and visiting http://192.168.1.1/. The default login and password for my new router was admin/admin. If that doesn’t work try logging in as admin without a password.

This will take you into the router to set it up.
