Any settings on the router will be erased and the router’s IP address will become “192.168.1.1” and the password will be “admin.”

Disconnect router from internet, plug in the cat5 cable to router from computer, open browser, if router log in is not displayed, type in where the URL would go the default 192.168.1.1

If you are using dsl make sure to change your router static ip to something else. e.g. 192.168.0.1 so there won't be any conflict.

Unbrick router e2500


If you installed dd-wrt for your new router firmware it's possible you installed the wrong firmware. In most cases, it's permanently bricked. If not, you can try the 30/30/30 method to reset the router to its original factory settings. That is
1. Unplug the router and press the reset button for 30 secs
2 plug in the router and press the reset button for 30 secs
3 unplug the router again and press the reset button for 30 secs

During the entire process keep the reset button depressed. It takes some good hand coordination. 20/20/20 always worked for me for all the linksys routers I've owned over the years.

Lost installer/set up driver linksys model wrk54G


You don't need the disk. You should be able to log-in to the web interface of the router at this URL: http://192.168.0.1/

If you don't remember the password, you'll have to reset the router to factory defaults and then log-in with password "admin".

I forgot my passwoed


If you lost your password/forgot what you set it to, you will have to factory/hard reset your router back to factory default settings and set everything back up again. Just make sure you keep your password somewhere safe so you don't lose it again.

To hard reset (Factory Reset) your router (The best method), use the following steps:

The following procedure will clear out the NVRAM and set your router back to default values:
  1. With the router powered on, press and hold the reset button on back of unit for 30 seconds
  2. Without releasing the reset button, unplug the unit and hold reset for another 30 seconds
  3. Plug the unit back in STILL holding the reset button a final 30 seconds.
This procedure should be done BEFORE and AFTER every firmware upgrade/downgrade.
Do not use configuration restore if you change firmware builds (different svn build numbers).

The default login for your router's control panel/settings manager is as follows:

Username: Not required /Admin/Administrator (Try all three. One should definitely work)
Password: admin (Case Sensitive)

Also the default access IP of WRT54G is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.15.1 (Depending on version) so after you hard reset the router and get it booted back up, you should be able to access the router via:

http://192.168.1.1
http://192.168.15.1

I hope this helps. I know it's probably not the answer you wanted, but unfortunatly you won't be able to retrieve or change your password without having the password or hard resetting your router back to factory defaults and set it back up (Sometimes good to do anyway every once in a while).

Also, just as an extra tip/hint, I'm going to lead you in the direction to turn that $60 router into a $600 router (Theoretically speaking) just by using a custom firmware called DD-WRT which unlocks TONS of options and is faster and much more stable than the factory firmware.

You can find DD-WRT here:

Enjoy!

Best Regards,

James

LINKSYS wrt 300n


Ok, I recieved one of these routers a while back to fix and I think that some D-Link's access has been disabled. To reset the router back to default settings, on the back of the D-Link, hold in the small reset button in the hole for about 4 seconds and it should restart. Then, all settings on the thing will be reset back to the defaults set by D-Link!
