Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Want to unblock the parental control on the Linksys by Cisco.

I held the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds like they said to do, which took me back to the original factory default. But when I went to the website it was still blocked. Any other suggestions??

How i reset to factory defaults without passwords?

That depends upon the brand of the router. It would be wise to google for the particular brand.

There often are software means to perform a reset but here are the hardware means.

For Netgear:

  1. Press and hold the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons until the Power LED blinks red (about 6 seconds).
  2. Release the Wireless On/Off and WPS buttons and wait for the router to reboot.
For Linksys:

1. Press the red reset button on the back.
2. Unplug it from power for 30 seconds. Plug the power back in.

For Belkin:

1. Find the reset button (depends on the model).
2. Depress the reset button for 15 seconds.
3. Wait one minute for the router to restart.

Here is a tutorial for Cisco routers:

Here is one for TP-Link:

For D-Link:

Push a paperclip into the hole marked reset on the back and keep it depressed for 10 seconds.

The default user name is usually admin and there is no password (password is blank).

I ofrget my router password

MOST, if not all, cisco routers have a small recessed button to reset the router to Factory defaults. If you've lost your password, you can hold that button for 30 seconds to reset ALL router settings to factory default. MOST Cisco/Linksys routers use admin/admin for the factory default id/password.

Linksys E1200 total lock up

with most routers there is a reset button you can hold in for about 10 seconds which will return the device to factory settings. If this does not work try the 30 30 30 reset:
with the router powered on press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, then without releasing the reset button, pull the power cable from the device and wait a further 30 seconds, then plug the power back in again without releasing the reset button for a final 30 seconds. You can then power off and back on and (fingers crossed) it should be OK. If this is not the case then it is bricked and unless you are good with electronics hardware you should just replace the item.

You might not need the CD; try logging into or If it's so whacko'd that you can't log in, you might try a hardware reset; look for the reset button on the back of the router. Hold it for 30 seconds. Power off the router (unplug power) while still holding that reset button for about 30 seconds. Power it back on, still holding that reset button for another 30 seconds. That should pound it back to the stone age. Then you can log into it (with a blank login field) and with the default password, "admin". From there you can change things if necessary. It should

There should be a small hole with a red circle around it on the back of the router next to the power plug hole. Use a pin or straighten paper clip to push the tiny button.

Think my router is bricked, can jtag fix this & how ?

Press the reset button on the router and hold it down for 30 second. Wait for 10 seconds. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
The router will be back to the factory default settings. Now run the CD that comes with the router. Install the Cisco connect software and see if that works.
If the Cisco connect software is not working then you can try to etup the router manually without the CD.
