Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
How can I access my Linksys wireless router if I have forgotten the user name and password?
Do you mean the username and passward that comes up when you access the router's inbuilt webserver?
If you haven't changed them they are likely to be admin and admin.
If you have changed them and you really can't remember, then the only real option is to reset the unit back to factory settings. That involved sticiks something small enough into the reset hole on the back. A straightened paper-clip is best. Press it into the hole, you'll feel the switch click as you press. keep holding \till you get some flashing lights on the front, that normally indicates that the rest has happened.
Then of course you'll have to set the unit up again with your ISP access login and password.

Press and hold the reset button of the Linksys router using a pointed object (like a paper clip or pen) for 30 seconds.
The reset button is located in the back of the Linksys router closest to an Ethernet port.
The button is recessed to protect you from accidentally resetting the modem.
Unplug the Linksys router while pressing the reset button.
Shut down your computer for one minute.
Plug the Linksys router back into the wall outlet.
Reboot your computer.
Open your web browser to access a website.
Type the below in the address bar if you want to reset your password:
A prompt from the site will request a user name and password.
The user name stays blank, or, in some models, is "admin".
Navigate to the security tab. Input your new password to protect unauthorized access to your router
hope this helps
