    have you changed the password when you set this up? If not you can access by using the default password. When you connect, leave user name blank and for password type admin; this is default settings and will only work if you have NOT changed these settings under admin

SOURCE: Password protection for my linksys wireless router

you need to get into the routers settings and look in the menu for security and select atleast WEP security and either you type a password in to reveal a 8 digit code or type in your own mixture of numbers and letters, which will then have to be entered into each pc when they try to connect. You can also look in the SSID and remove the name or dissable SSID so as your network will not appear on anybody elses wireless searches.

SOURCE: I don't know the password of my Linksys router.

Hold teh reset button in the back for 30 seconds and it'll reset the router to factory defaults. From there, open a browser and type the address 192.168.1.1. Username is blank and password is "admin". If that doesn't work, many of the newer linksys routers have "admin" as both the username and the password.

SOURCE: How to configure Huwaei MT880 with linksys WRT120N router?

Try these steps:

  1. Shut down the DSL/Cable modem
  1. Power up the router (no cables just yet).
  1. Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
  1. Connect the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
  1. Connect Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
  1. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and downloading a manual.
  1. Now, a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field blank then press OK.
  1. Now you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that you can follow.
  1. If everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
  1. At the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the application that came with the router or windows wireless configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct icon in the tray.
  2. Now, in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.

Hi, just log into your router (or run the router setup disk) from a PC connected to one of the router ports on the back. You can find the password on the Wireless Tab and within that page the Wireless Security subtab. If you don't know how to log into your router and/or have lost the setup disk, you may have to reset it and use the default (none) security.

Firstly log into your router from your computer. If you don't know the username and password, try the default one which is Username: admin Password: Admin. Check under Wireless setting and you will see the current password listed there. You can change it to a new one if required. Just remember to save after you've done any changes.

You are looking for a Wireless Security key, this is not the Linksys password for the admin portion, look on the bottom it maybe there if not changed. Else goto the router home page and check it there something like 192.168.0.1. or 192.168.1.1 etc etc

I've forgotten my password


DOH! Sorry to hear that! Unless you can remember it, you'll need to reset your router to the factory defaults, which will unlock your password. Your router should have a tiny button on it you'd typically use a ball point pen to depress, which resets it to factory defaults.

Some routers, like linksys, don't have an actual user name so be sure you're leaving that blank. If it is a linksys, the default username is blank, and the password is admin. You'll want to change that quickly and I recommend writing your password in sharpie under your router if you're the forgetful type.
