I need to reconfigure my Linksys WRT546 router

I need to reconfigure my Linksys WRT54G router after AT&T changed the network password on my modem-they won't connect. The ATT guy said I need to create the PPPOE connection in the router. Is this something I can do?

Access linksys wireless-g wrt54g with Nook tablet


Change the wireless network name and then change the key.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.
If not then you can try to upgrade the firmware of your Linksys router.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it.

My son went to youtube and found a video on how to change WPA to WEP. Now my network is not working on my printer and laptop


you need to reconfigure your printer and laptop to WEP but I don't recommend it as WEP is terrible and easy to crack.
connect to your router via cat 5
open internet explorer and browse to http://192.168.1.1
login with the default login is blank. pass is admin.
go to wireless and to wireless security.
change it back to WPA personal.
change the passphase for the wireless password.
use the new passphase you created and tell your printer/laptop to join your wireless network
you may want to change your wireless password too so your son won't reconfigure your router again.
do this by going to administration and change the password there.

  • If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.

    To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.

    Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.

    To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
    LinkSys Default Password

    On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

    Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
    You want to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router.

    After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your nosy neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. I am picking up 4 networks with my pc antenna.


    Good luck

    Can not attach my Ipad 3G to my linkys wrt546 router.


    Does your Ipad have WiFi capability? If your Ipad has only 3G capability then you can only access internet through your cellular service(i.e. at&t, verizon, t-mobile, etc.) provider with a data plan. In order to attach your Ipad to the linksys wrt546 router your Ipad must have WiFi capability

    Can see the wireless network, but can not find the password to log on.


    Do you know how to access your linksys router? Do you know the password on the linksys router?

    If not you will need to reset the linksys to restore the password to it's default and then reconfigure the router from scratch.

    To reset the router use a ballpoint pen end press 10 seconds on the reset button in the back (ATTENTION: YOU WILL NEED TO RECONFIGURE THE ROUTER)

    Once you reset it the password to access the router is admin. Connect to the router using a cat5 cable, point your browser to : http://192.168.1.1
    leave the user field empty and type admin in the password field.
    You can now go ahead and reconfigure it.
