Reset it by pressing the reset button on the rear ( you need to push something thin into the reset hole)

Turn the unit on with the power cord - take an unfolded paper clip. Look for the word RESET - push the paper clip in to the hole while looking at the front of the unit. There will be two solid red lights when it resets.
Now - hook everything up to the main pc - open a browser window and type in 192.168.1
for username type "admin" without the quotations.

make changes as needed

Good luck

I want to set pasword bt i forgot my old pasword. how can I reset again


A forgotten or lost router password cannot be recovered. It can only be reset by hard resetting the router. Press the reset button for few seconds then you can login using default username and password.....

Forgot password...I know username


What username do you know? Is it for the login for the GUI when you type the 192.168.1.1? There is no way you can retrieve the password you had set if you changed it before. The only way to access your router GUI again is to hard reset the router so that it will go back to default as admin for username and password is admin as well. The problem is all the settings that you saved before like port forwarding, NAT configuration and wireless setting will go back to default and you will need to reconfigure it back again.

I set up wifi network in my home and forgot the password I used to set it up. Is there any way to recover that password?


Unfortunately, no. The only way to access your network again is to reset the router by holding down the reset button on the back (you might need to unplug it, then plug it back in while holding the reset button). That will reset your web interface (navigate to 192.168.1.1 in your browser while connected to the router)'s username and password to some form of the following:

Username: admin
Password: admin
Username: admin
Password: password
Username: admin
Password:

NOTE: The last combination is a blank password.

Once you've entered your router's web utility, you can set up your wireless again. Don't forget to write down the password...I wrote mine on the router itself, because honestly nobody can see it because it's in my house, so I don't have to worry about it being stolen.

I forgot my password


Hi,
If you have forgotten the router password you can reset it.
To do this, turn the router upside down and look for a small pinhole that says reset. Get a stapler and press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds.
The router will reset to factory defaults and you will be able to login again using the default username and password. For linksys routers is "admin" for both fields.

Cant login never had username or password if i did i forgot


Depending on which revision you have there are two possibilities

Default Username is: admin
Default Password is: password
or
Default Username is: admin
Default Password is: admin

If neither of these work - you may have setup a new username and password and forgot - on the router you will see a reset point - reset the router to factory defaults and the username and passwords above will now work.

If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly, thank you.

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!
