We are going to reset your password.

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.

Forgot my password to get on Y-Fi, is there a way to retrieve it without resetting my router?


Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings
Ebay you can purchase a Password Unlock/Recovery For Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7

Item title Password Unlock/Recovery For Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7

US $1.49 (Approximately AU $1.50)

My wifi is asking for apassword and i never put a password on it. how do i get around it?


If you did not set the password, then reset it back to default:

Linksys reset

The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds.

If you want to configure the router:

Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

I forgot my username and password and want to create a VPN or remote connection


If you've forgotten the username and password, there is really no viable solution other than resetting the router. All the software can be found on linksys' website, along with manuals for reconfiguring your router. Breakout your trusty paperclip and press the reset button on the back of the router. Reconfiguring should only take a few minutes. The default username will be "admin" and the default password is "password" (both without the quotes.)

Manual

No software is actually required to install the router. Any information needed will be in the manaul, provided above.

Hope this helps!

Ihave a problem with My Toshiba Laptop, when i turn the computer on, black screen it appears and asked me to put apassword , this happens after a many time of tries to put my password of the operation...


are you trying to connect thru a router? If so then you need to ask whoever set it up or uses it, for the password,it's really the encryption key if not the network, ask te boss. good luck, from what you wrote it isn't clear if this only happens at a particular location, or every whare. If it happens everywhere then whoever installed the operating system, used a password, and they need to be contacted, I can tell you how to buypass that but try doing what I suggested as it will be a lot easier
