Forgot my username & password at the server 192.168.1.1:80 Linksys BEFW1154 V2 V3


Are you looking for the password to login to router setup page?
The default router user name and password is admin.
if that does not work then you may need to reset the router.
Remember if you reset the router, you will lose the settings on the router and you will need to re-configure the router.
here is an article to open the router setup page.

If this would not work and you cant access the Linksys you need to reset the router by poking the reset hole at the back of it.Thanks
