Re: how do i change my linksys wireless password both...
Reset the router to factory defaults and start again.
There is a small hole on the reverse of most routers.
Push something thin in for 30 seconds or so and thats it.
If you dont have your default log in details or even know how to log onto the router(usually open your browser and type 192.168.0.1, but it can be other addresses) google the make and model and default log on, all the information will be there

To be able to get you Network key you will need to get in the Router settings page.
Firs you will need an Ethernet cable to connect you computer to the Router.
Once you have the cable and that the Router is connected to the Compute you will need to open IE or Firefox.
Now on your Browser on the Address bar you will need to type in 192.168.1.1 then press Enter this should open up a windows asking for a user name and password.
For the User Name type in Admin and for the Password leave it Blank or it can be the other way around leave the User name Blank and the password admin.
this should open the Linksys setting page click the Wireless Tab or Link then the network mode or radio should be enabled to get wireless working on your Linksys Router.
Also third i where you can get the WEP key of your Router you may also change that if your wish to WEP can only be a 10 numerical password most Internet service providers use the phone numbers of the customer as the WEP key.
First you need to change the ip address on the router to a different ip address than the modem. I use on my is 192.168.9.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0. Leave the modem at 192.168.1.1. Go to your desktop and enter whatever ip address says at your gateway located in my network under lan adapters. Then change the lan ip address at my recommendation. Go to your wireless tab, under the wireless tab there is a check mark saing unmask the password, there you it well show your password. Take a laptop turn on the wireless on the laptop and when it finds your network enter that password that is unmask. When you turn on encryption you turn on a password, this will show your password. Make sure that you change the password to the one that you can remember, and uncheck the mask.
Open your web browser and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1.
This will take you to a web page with a popup box which asks you to
enter a username and password to login required to login to your router.
On older Linksys routers, the username is set to "blank" and the password is set to "admin" (without the quotes). On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin". Click on login. You have logged in to the Administrator account and are
now able to access and change the Security WEP password. Remember to also add the new password to your wireless adaptor on your laptop when prompted.
I'm assuming that your 2nd laptop is wireless? Does your router have encryption? If it has, then you need to get the encryption key from one of the working computers. Access the linksys interface from one of the working computers. Usually this is done by going to http://192.168.1.1 (leave username blank, password is "admin"). Go to Wireless> Wireless Security. Is encryption selected? If yes, get encryption key #1 and use it on the non-working laptop to connect to the router. If encryption is not enabled, go to the steps below.
On the 2nd laptop, click on the wireless icon at the bottom right part of your screen. Look for the linksys router from one of the available wireless networks, click connect and enter in the encryption key when it asks for it (not case-sensitive. Usually it's 10 or 24 digits). If encryption is not enabled, it will not ask for the encryption keys when you hit connect. See what happens.
If admin password is not working, it might have been changed to something else. Try to type any password that you can think of. If none works, you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds, plug it back in then try to access the 192.168.1.1 page again, that should do it for admin as the password, no username.
In you web browser, type in 192.168.0.1. If that doesn't work, try 192.168.1.1. If none of these work, it is your router that is the problem and you need to contact Linksys directly. A dialogue box will appear asking for a username and password. Leave the username field blank and type in admin for the password. You will reach the linksys configuration page. Scroll down untill you see Local IP Address. Change it to 192.168.2.1. Scroll down and select save settings. Relogin back to the webpage. Click the tab that says wireless. Make sure the wireless broadcast option is enabled. If it isn't, enable it and click save settings. Click the subtab that says Wireless Security. Change the first option to WPA Shared Key. Changed the second option to TKIP. Next, type in a password you are sure you will never forget. Write it down if necessary. Once completed, hit save settings. You should now be able to set up the wireless connection on the laptop successfully. If you need help in doing that also, please comment back.
