First tray default username : admin and password : admin

If no luck, The easiest thingto do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
-- To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button (back of your Wireless router, there is small hole with small button inside) on the unit for 25 seconds.
-- Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and configure it again.
-- Connect a PC to one of it's ethernet ports, run a web browser, and type default IP or in address bar This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
-- Default User name : admin and default Password : admin
-- Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the router.
--Youwant to go to the management tab and change the administrator passwordto something else to keep others from accessing your router.
-- After changing the administrator password then you will need to enableWEP or WPA security, to secure your WiFi from public.

How do I change password if I forgot the password? Model # WRT 160N V3

If you forgot your router's password, you won't be able to access the router's configuration, so you'll have to reset the router back to its factory defaults. (This will delete all of your settings, and will put the router back the way it was when you first bought it.)

To reset the router, hold in the red Reset button on the back of the router for about five seconds. Once the router has been reset, you can log back into it by using the password "admin" and leaving the username field blank.

If this solution helped you solve your problem, please consider rating it. Thank you.

How to change my security password for my computer because I forgot my password and I own a linksys router wrt54g THANKS FOR THE INFO

This answer is not specific to your router but, most wireless router have a 'reset' button on the back. You need to have physical access to the router. It cannot be done remotely. You will probably have to insert a pin or paperclip through a small hole in the back to reset it. You will lose all settings. Then you can log into the router, using the default settings, and set a new password.

I need to install a Linksys Wireless router to my pc.

Could we have the model number of the router please?

On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
