Need to get back to factory settings on linksys wireless router

Look at the back of the wireless router.  There is a reset button.  Take a ball point pen and push that little button that says reset and hold it (while the unit is on and plugged in).  Hold the button for about 15-20 sec.  Then let go of the button and you should be able to log back in.  Your IP address to access your router should be:     Your default password and username will be (Username: admin    Password: admin)
Any questions, just ask!!!
