SOURCE: password forgotten

What you need to do here is to get the Wireless security from your Linksys router by accessing its setup page, Just type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar of your working computer then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the user name blank and type admin for password. If you're already on the router setup page you will see there Wireless tab just go to it and after that go to Wireless security sub tab under wireless and you can find there the wireless key that you need..

If that wont work contact me back for further help....

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

How can I change my router password?


There is a button on the router somewhere that usually requires either a pin or a pencil/pen to successfully press.
Look all around it and if you press the button, possibly hold it for a few seconds, it will reset to default settings.
To connect to it, either connect wirelessly if you know the password, or use ethernet to physically gain connection.
Once you're at least "connected" to the router by either method, open a new browser window and type in
192.168.1.1
to enter the admin settings. You can there set up either a WEP/WPA/WPA2 key, or change the administrator password. These are different things, and reading the instructions on the page should help clarify which you want to change.

Password problems.


Depending on the type of router, you could have various defaults set, if you never changed them.
You can press the reset button somewhere located on the router itself, using a pen/pin/pencil, and then google your brand of router asking what the default password is.
If it is a Linksys, you could google "Linksys default password" or "Linksys default login" for example.

Forgotten password


The Linksys default password is admin., exactly as you see it in bold. Also, there are two ways to reset the Router's factory defaults. Either press and hold the Reset Button for approximately five seconds, or restore the defaults from Administration > Factory Defaults in the Router's web-based utility.

Forgot my password


Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > security

On this screen you can see the wireless key
If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is Preshared key

Thanks

I have a cisco link sys WRT54G2 I have lost our cd and box . It is connected to our desk top but I have gotten a iPad now and need to use wireless but we have forgotten our password ! We have been trying...


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

We are going to try and reset your password for you while getting rid of the old one!

On a computer connected to the linksys now.

Click the link below

192.168.1.1

On the page that comes up, it will ask for a username and password.

type in admin for the password, leave the username blank


You are inside the router..

Click on wireless, then right under it click on wireless security.

Where it says, PSK / Passphrase / Or Network key .. There is a text box to the right

In that text box is your password.. If it looks like **************

You will have to type in a new password, and click apply / save settings.

Then.. The router will restart..

You have now found out, or reset your wireless password.

***Note*** If you changed the password.. The current computer will also have to reconnect to the network, and enter the new password.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

Want to modify my settings


Documentation is at
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G2
But this page is way more helpful
http://www.pcwintech.com/wireless-setup-linksys-wrt54g2-linksys-firmware

From a browser enter 192.168.1.1
This should give you the web interface to your router.
Your interface should look something like this:
http://ui.linksys.com/files/WRT54G2/1.5.00/

To login leave user id blank and use 'admin' as a password (default)

Note that this model has at least 3 different variants and particulars will vary:

Connect to the router with an ethernet cable. Use a web browser and connect to 192.168.1.1 You should see a router home page. login as admin (default id= none/blank/null password=admin) These detailed instructions may help here http://nabtron.com/forgot-linksys-wrt54gr-password-how-to-reset-settings-of-the-router/180/ browse to the wireless/wireless security section and set up your WEP key. You can preview the web page layout here; http://ui.linksys.com/files/WRT54G2/ e.g. http://ui.linksys.com/files/WRT54G2/1.0.00/WSecurity.htm for you this would be http://192.168.1.1/WSecurity.htm

WRT54G2 wired desktop fine, can't connect to wireless.


Hi Seth6025,

Try without using Wireless Encryption (password).

Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable

Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.

Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.

Regards,

Angel
