Is there a limit on the length of a username and password for this router.

I have changed both the username and password and now when I put it in I cannot get to it.

my current username is 28 characters and my password is 20 characters.

Are we talking about the user name and password just to get into the router? Like the default is admin and the password is just left blank? I don't think there is a limit but you don't have to go really crazy here. Once you change it from the default make sure you write it down and keep it someplace you won't lose it. You have to type it in just the way you put it in when you changed it like: PaSSwoRd . Exactly the same. If you think you maybe might not have it exactly or don't have it written down ( not likely since it's so long), the only thing you can do is reset the router to factory defaults. Just press and hold the reset button for ten seconds. Make sure you don't unplug it during this time. I've included a link for the manual in case you don't have yours. If this helped you fix your problem please rate. If the problem is with a different password just add a comment and I'll be glad to help. Thanks.

How 2 put the password?

Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543

Belkin - Username: Leave the field blank Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is:

Buffalo - Username: root Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is:

D-Link - Username: admin Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is:

Encore - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

Linksys - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

NetGear - Username: admin Password: password Default IP address will be: or

TP-Link - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

TrendNet - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

Zhone - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

Zyxel - Username: admin Password: 1234 Default IP address

Change user name


Please indicate the Model of the router you are referring to.

If its Cisco, first do a no username xxx password nnn command on the existing configuration. Then on the global configuration mode insert a new command with the new username and password. See example below:

#configure terminal
(config)# no username old-username password old-password
(config)# username new-username privilege 15 password new-password
(config)# exit
# wr memory

I need to limit access to my wlan router. How do I do it? I typed in the address bar of the Internet Explorer and hit enter. I then typed admin in the username box and password in the password...

You could try "admin" as the username and "password1" as the password, or "admin" as the username and no password. If neither of those work, you might have to contact Linksys tech support.

Once you get into your router's settings, there are several things you can do to limit access to your router. The first thing is to change the default password. You can also change your network name (SSID), enable MAC filtering, or turn on WEP, WPA, or WPA2 security, depending on which options your router and computers support.

Limited access

If you have limited access, that means you need to change the wireless channel of your router. Using your wired computer, open the router's setup page by going to internet explorer and type and press enter. It will prompt you for username and password. By default the username is blank and the password is admin. Look for wireless tab and look for wireless channel. Change it to channel 11. Make sure to take note of the Wireless Security key as well under wireless security tab. Save the settings after changing the wireless channel. On your laptop, make sure to disable any firewall then try to reconnect to the wireless network.

Can't login to

Hi the username and password for the router has been changed while the previous configuration.If you can call your service providor they should be able to provide the same.There are other some common usernames and passwords which you can try.
*******Alternatively you can also try to reset the router to its default settings by pressing the reset button at the back of the router(however this should be the last step of action).
