Here is how to reset a new password since you cannot remember your 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.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the laptop to the router.
Access the router's built-in web-interface, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", and choose a password.

Forgot password


Default is blank, or no password. If you've added a password and forgot, you need to reset router.

Back of router is small pinhole reset button-
"Restoring the Factory Defaults
Press and hold the Reset button for at least ten seconds then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The Power/Ready light will begin to blink. When the Power/Ready light becomes solid again, the restore is complete."

Forgot router password


What is the manufacturer of the router. Most routers have a reset button. Reset it by pushing it for two to three seconds then waiting ten to 15 seconds before trying the password again.

Some routers have no password as default.
If it's a linksys router the ID is "admin" and so is the password.
Some of them I've seen the ID is "admin" by default with no password.

Some of their passwords can be controlled by using the installation cd.

Forgot password


If the version number of your router 5 and below the default ip of it is 192.168.0.1 and username is "admin" password is "password", because there is a possibility that the 192.168.1.1 is your modem,
Better check the default gateway of the pc that is working with the router to make sure that your accessing the correct router ip.

If the default gateway of the working pc is 192.1687.1.1 and "admin" "password" not working reset the router by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds so it will be back to its default settings.
