Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

WRT54G Config I was given one from my company that no one could use due to the fact that the tech that had configured it is no longer with us. Just need to find out how to get into it and wipe out the current configuration and just let it be wide open. I have tried the trick to hold reset then plug in power to reset defaults but this did not work for me.

To reset your router, use the following steps:

  1. Press the reset button for 10 seconds. You can use a small object, such as a paper clip to hold down the button.
  2. Do not power off the unit while the router is being reset.
    The unit should now reboot, and once the WLAN light stops blinking the router should be reset.
  3. Open up your Web browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
  4. For the login, enter admin as the ID and leave the password blank.
The router has now been reset.

Can I load a backup config from my Linksys WRT54G to my new Linksys E1500


Have you tried doing so? Most likely presets from one device will not work on another. You can try though, it should not cause any problems. Worst case you just perform a factory reset on your router if the configuration gets messed up by trying to load the preset from your WRT54G.

I no longer can access the internet with my hard-wired computer WHEN my router is attached. If I remove the router and reboot, I can get the internet with my hard-wired computer.


You still need to bridge your moded to the router. Then configure your router for the PPPoE using the account information given to you by your ISP. Your username and password.

Hi i have 1841 router what is the default user name password for this i tryed with user name passowrd as cisco but is saying that no user cisco pls help me



  • Follow these steps in order to recover your password:
    1. Attach a terminal or PC with terminal emulation to the console port of the router.
      Use these terminal settings:
      • 9600 baud rate
      • No parity
      • 8 data bits
      • 1 stop bit
      • No flow control
    2. If you can access the router, type show version at the prompt, and record the configuration register setting.
      Note: The configuration register is usually set to 0x2102 or 0x102. If you can no longer access the router (because of a lost login or TACACS password), you can safely assume that your configuration register is set to 0x2102.
    3. Use the power switch in order to turn off the router, and then turn the router back on.
      Important Notes:
      • In order to simulate this step on a Cisco 6400, pull out and then plug in the Node Route Processor (NRP) or Node Switch Processor (NSP) card.
      • In order to simulate this step on a Cisco 6x00 with NI-2, pull out and then plug in the NI-2 card.
    4. Press Break on the terminal keyboard within 60 seconds of power up in order to put the router into ROMMON.
      If the break sequence does not work, refer to Standard Break Key Sequence Combinations During Password Recovery for other key combinations.
    5. Type confreg 0x2142 at the rommon 1> prompt in order to boot from Flash.
      This step bypasses the startup configuration where the passwords are stored.
    6. Type reset at the rommon 2> prompt.
      The router reboots, but ignores the saved configuration.
    7. Type no after each setup question, or press Ctrl-C in order to skip the initial setup procedure.
    8. Type enable at the Router> prompt.
      You are in enable mode and should see the Router# prompt.
    9. Type configure memory or copy startup-config running-config in order to copy the nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) into memory.
      Important: Do not type copy running-config startup-config or write. These commands erase your startup configuration.
    10. Type show running-config.
      The show running-config command shows the configuration of the router. In this configuration, the shutdown command appears under all interfaces, which indicates all interfaces are currently shut down. In addition, the passwords (enable password, enable secret, vty, console passwords) are in either an encrypted or unencrypted format. You can reuse unencrypted passwords. You must change encrypted passwords to a new password.
    11. Type configure terminal.
      The hostname(config)# prompt appears.
    12. Type enable secret password> in order to change the enable secret password. For example:
      hostname(config)#enable secret cisco
    13. Issue the no shutdown command on every interface that you use.
      If you issue a show ip interface brief command in privilege EXEC mode, every interface that you want to use should display up up. For example:
      Router#show ip interface brief
    14. Type config-register configuration_register_setting>. Where configuration_register_setting is either the value you recorded in step 2 or0x2102 . For example:
      hostname(config)#config-register 0x2102
    15. Press Ctrl-z or end in order to leave the configuration mode.
      The hostname# prompt appears.
    16. Type write memory or copy running-config startup-config in order to commit the changes.

Cant setup or connect to internet through router


Different ISPs require different configurations. If you have a Linksys router, such as the WRT54G, there are 2 ways on how you can configure it, either by running the Setup CD or by doing manual configuration. This particular router has its own web utility and you can access it by typing its IP addres on your web browser, ex. http://192.168.1.1. By default, it doesn’t have any username and its password is admin.

Once you’re inside the setup page, you can configure now the router for DHCP, PPPoE or STATIC IP settings. For DSL customers using a PPPoE account, some modem needs to be configured into BRIDGE MODE first and then the router will be set to PPPoE with the correct username and password (given by ISP). If your a DHCP account, modem doesn’t require any configuration. It will work with its default setting and the router would be set to DHCP. Once done, powercycle your devices to establish internet connection.
