Go to your PC and run command or CMD and then run IPCONFIG look at the gateway addresss. (usually then open browser and go to that address once there it should prompt for the login. Usually Admin - admin or Admin - password. (username and password respectively)
If it is not then go to and find your router and look up the manual.

I have lost my password for Lynsky router.

To reset the Linksys back to the default settings -Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-

I have lost the password to my lynskys /wrt54/g router, how can I retrieve it or change it?

Try and if unsuccessful, there is no way to 'retrieve' a router password. If you forget it, you will have to factory reset it

Open a web browser and enter the address "" in the address bar.
Leave the user name blank and enter the password "admin" without quotes. This is the factory default password

yes if you can connect through a cord, punch in to your web browser this ip address and it should bring up your control panel for your router, it will either be, or, then you can go in and adjust everything and change your stuff. user name and password will either be left blank or admin, admin as both.

I am unable to locate the key code for the WRT160N. when I try to go through the ipaddress admin as user and password will not work.

If you have not changed the password previously, leave the user name blank and use the password "admin".

If you have changed the password, you will have to reset the router and reconfigure it.

To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:
  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds.
Thi will set it back to the factory defaults. It will need to be reconfigured.

I forgot my login name and password. How can I reset and start over?

Hey there,
Check this diagram of the back of your router:
The small button that's labelled as "1" on the diagram is the reset button. It's quite small, so you'll need to use the tip of a paperclip or ballpoint pen. It's designed to be small so you dont hit it by accident :)
Push down and hold on the button for 5 seconds, and release.
Allow your router to reset and turn back fully back on.
It has now been fully restored to factory defaults, and you can start over.
Hope this helped you out! Feel free to rate me if I did help you :)

How do you set password?

By default you access a linksys router through its web browser at this link:

The router's default user name is admin
The default password is admin

If the default settings have been changed, then the access link and/or password might be different.

If you need to get into the settings to change the password as requested, you will have to know the password used or reset the router back to factory defaults to regain access.

If you decide to reset the router, this is done by using a pen or paperclip and pressing in the rest button located on the back edge (near the power plug) and holding it in for up to 60 seconds. Be fore-warned, that resetting your router WILL WIPE ALL SETTINGS and you will likely lose internet access until the settings are restored as required by your Internet Service Provider.

I need to reset my router's password. Can you help?

To reset your password you need to "reset" the router, either by pressing the Reset button on the router (probably on the back of it, with a pen as its a small button). Please note that sometimes you have to wait for like 15 secondes before it reset it! Also try at last solution, you need to press and leave that button pressed, unplugged completely from power, replug, still pressing...
Otherwise do you know you can access the "router config page" with typing like or or in your browser? (firefox, internet explorer...)
The thing is you seems to get confused, reseting the password will not help you preventing someone else using your connection via wireless..
to be secure you will need to:
-change the default login/password of your router config
-put encryption Wpa2 for the wifi
-put a proper complex passphrase (not like myteddy123, something hard and long like "z#~@'2g@rd3n!!"T3stPou.?".
-lower the broadcasting range settings if you don't it to emit the signals very far
-change the ip addressing of your network (ie change from by default probably to something hard like
-check regularly the logs if available in your router config page (

To setup your router you will have to access it by opening your browser and in the address bar type, in the user name type admin, and in the password: admin. if this does not work leave the user name blank and type admin in the password slot. If this does not work reset the router by depressing the reset button on the back of the router for @ 10 seconds and then retry the options I just related to you.
