Hello!

1. are you referring to the router username and password or the wireless security password ?

2. what is the exact model number of your router?

3. where did you get the message to put in the username and password in an unsecure manner?



-- the default router username is admin with no password
-- the wireless security will depends on what security settings that are configured on the router

When using set up system is asking for a password for linksys G


have you tried entering a blank username i.e. enter nothing? and use admin as the password
if that doesnt work look on the label on the bopttom of the router your isp might have configured it with there own username and password

I have an unsecured Linksys wireless set up installed. How can I go back and make it secure?


Hi jenkinsbebeg,

There's a possibilty that you will get an unstable connection due to unsecured Linksys setup. Poeple around you can pick up your network easily and could eat up your bandwith. So it is highly recommended to set up a security on your router. There are several options on how to set up or configure your router. You can use the setup wizard or by opening your web browser.

Here are some steps on how to set up your router using your web browser:

1. Open your web browser ( Internet Explorer, Mozilla ).

2. Now enter the the following URL: http://192.168.1.1

3. Enter your Username and Password.

common username and password for linksys:
--> username blank, password "admin"
--> username "admin", password blank
--> username "admin", password "admin"

4. You need to connect to the internet then click "internet setup".

5. From the drop down menu select DHCP for cable modems, and for DSL modems please select "PPPOE".

6. Now set the SSID (Service Set Identifier) to identify your network name. You could also change the password from here.

7. At this point you can encrypt your wireless connection using the WEP ( Wireless Encryption Protocol ) or WPA. If you will be using the WEP just go under " wireless security" option, then enter your preferred password (passphrase) then click on "generate".

From here you should now be able to connect to your router using your preferred password.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Linksys routers have a reset button that can be pressed with a paper clip.  Once reset, all of your settings will go back to default and your username and password will be reset to  admin for both.  Best of luck.

The default username and password to configure router doesnt work


Try to turn off your modem first before trying to open the router's setup page. By default, there's no username and the password is admin. Also turn off any firewall you have.

Security


Till the time you put a access code for the wireles it would show it as a unsecure connection.You can change this by accessing the router page.Just type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of internet explorer.Than it would ask you for username and password.Its ussually admin and the password field blank.Than go to wireless settings and the security to WEP.than you can put a password of either 5 or 10 digits.U can put your phone # which would be easy to remember and than just save the setting.Next time when you would try to connet to it than it would ask you to put the access code and will show up as secure connection.
I hope that helps
