The router has a bug which allows you to dowload the config file without loggin-in. Surf on the web and you will find it.

There are only two ways to restart a router.
1. Go onto its settings and reset it to factory settings.
2. Hold the restart button for 15 seconds. (try sticking a pen in there, and see if it does anything.

Soultion (if nothing works)
Get a new router.

LOGISYS ROUTER


1 Press and hold the reset button on the LinkSys router for 30 seconds. The location of the reset button varies depending on your model, but it is usually located in a small pin hole on the side or back of the unit. Insert a straightened paper clip into the hole until you feel resistance. A hard reset occurs and the router is restored to its factory defaults.



2 Log in and reconfigure the router following the hard reset. Connect a PC to an Ethernet port on the router. Open a Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.1.1/. A popup box opens, prompting you to log in. On older LinkSys routers, leave the username field blank and type "admin" for the password. On newer routers, the default username and password are both set to "admin".
3
Go to the Management tab after you've logged in and set a new administrator password. For maximum security, choose a password comprised of random letters and numbers. This type of password is secure because it's impossible to guess.

4
Enable WEP or WAP security so that nosy neighbors cannot tap into your wireless network

What will i do if i forgot my security key???


All you have to do is connect to the router and change security key/ secure the connection. Just follow the following steps: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is 192.168.0.1 (Default router settings are written under the router)
(unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password "leave it blank") and lookup for the options to do the following: -

Next step is to secure it:
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Setup" 2.Under "Wireless Security Mode", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Save Settings.
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

In case you have forgotten the User Name/ Password of the router, there is no way to recover the lost password However, you can reset the router to factory defaults and re-configure settings like password, network key etc. First, to reset the router to factory default setting, press the reset button at the back of the router.

Please note that after RESETTING THE ROUTER to defaults, ALL SETTINGS WILL BE LOST AND YOU HAVE TO RECONFIGURE IT. Generally, after hard reset you get the connectivity, however, you have to make the connection secure etc.
Please, refer here to download the product guide/manual and make configurations as per the details provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I lost my password to my dir-601 router and need it for an Ipod to run of my wireless net. How can I find it? I have the security code. Thanks


Hello,
You have several options. However, I'm unsure if you have lost the username/password to access your D-Link router's setup/configuration page or if you have lost your wireless access code (used to access your wireless internet).

If you have lost your username/password to your routers setup/configuration page first try the factory default combination.

The default username is: admin
The default password leave blank

If you have customized the username and password during the original install you will have to reset the router to its factory default settings. To do this:
PLEASE NOT THAT BY DOING THIS YOUR ROUTER WILL BE RESET TO FACTORY DEFAULT AND WILL HAVE TO BE RECONFIGURED
Locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a
paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When logging in, the username is: admin and leave the password box empty.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
KYTechnology

I lost the username and password for Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router ,,how can i get them back?


Just reset your router and use (admin) for user name and password. To reset your router you can see a small hole in your router which is labeled reset. Use a pin and insert it to the hole and push.

ID and password for router has been lost


There is a pin hole in the back of the router which has a reset button in it. Hold that button down with a paperclip for 30 seconds and then switch the router off. This will reset the router back to its factory settings.

You will then be able to log in with the default username and password. This is usually "admin" for both the username and password.

Hold the reset button on the router for 30 second, do not let go of it after the diag LED turns off, continue holding it until 30 seconds have passed. After you?ve done this, the router will revert to factory defaults, all of your settings will be lost. By default the default Password for the router is admin, and there is no User Name.
