Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Ok, to do this you simply need to remove router from the power, and then at the tear you should see a small hole and inside a switch button, press this button and hold for a few seconds, and then this will "Reset" the router back to factory defaults" you then can login with the "Default" password. which I think is admin admin, but in any even I have included a manual that shows you how to do it all anyway.
However if you mean a WEP/WAP password, well you still do the same however, after you reset it, you then login to router go to security and generate a "Key" so you can WiFi login to the router. and save it.

Hi! You need to access the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of your router by accessing its IP.
Open command prompt - type ipconfig press enter check the default gateway value (Example: 192.168.1.1) type the default gateway value on your browser's address bar (Internet Explorer) press enter. you may be asked for a username and password. do not type anything on the username textbox and then type admin as your password. you may see the GUI of the linksys that is easy to configure, It includes usernam and password that you can set for your router.

Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.
When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.
Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.
Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.
Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.
Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.
