The default credentials for your router are "blank" for username and "admin" for password. In case you have already change these, you have to reset the router (using the proper button) in order to come back to the factory settings.

I forgot the password and username,and i want to change the security password of my router what shall i do?

If you have forgotten the router's password then you have to reset the router to factory default to access the interface again. Then you can use the router's default user name and password, that is admin and admin (or username: " " (leave it blank) and password: admin (all in lower case)

Have an ipod and dont remember the linksys password

goto a computer that is online.

Open up internet explorer or your favorite browser

type in

press enter

if you did not change the user name and password, username should be left empty with nothing in the username portion and the password is "admin"

if you did change the password and forgot the router password then you must hit the reset button on the back of your router to default the router and will need to reset up your wireless security settings.

but, once you get into the linksys administration page goto the wireless security section and you will see your wireless password there.

What number on my modem do i use to access the modem set up to add a device and where do i type the number to access my modem set up thanks Randy

open up a internet explorer window, at the top of the window where the url text box is, delete all text and type, the usual user name and password is admin for both, i think these routers give the user and password at the bottem of the modem as long as the factory defaults havent been changed it should allow you access to your router settings, if the number above dosent work try hope this helps
