Try entering 'admin' (without the quotes) in the 'Password' field only, thus leaving the 'User name' field empty.
Hope it works for you.

The factory password for Linksys is "admin", "1234" or none. In case that you have already change this, you have to reset the router in order to come back to defaults.

Older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

Requiring password


If your wireless access suddenly requires a password, one of two things has happened...
either you are inadvertently trying to connect to a neighbor's wireless router, or someone has modified your router.
If you are certain it is your router you are attempting to connect to, and it is requiring a password you did not setup, your best bet is to perform a hard reset. There should be a reset button on the back of your router. You should press and hold this button for a few seconds. This will clear all setup information and return the router to factory setup.
In order to setup your router from this point, you will need to connect directly to the router, perform whatever setup options you prefer, and then you should be able to connect wirelessly.
It is highly recommended that you setup a password for wireless access. It is also recommended you change the admin password to prevent someone else from making unwanted modifications.

WEP key


Hello.
Do you need the wireless password or the router login password?
If you need
wireless password(security key like WEP or WPA) or you would like to setup wireless security for your Netgear router, access the router setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or http://192.168.1.1(sometimes it's http://192.168.0.1) in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
Enter
admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

This image is the login window to access the router's setup page.

11_28_2011_1_09_53_am.png

After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key(For WEP you need Key 1,2,3 or 4 whichever is selected... For WPA you need passphrase) or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.


This image is the router's setup page and this is where you can configure the router and check some settings like Wireless security or password.

**If by chance you are unable to access the router's login or setup page by using the default username &password(admin, password) and you totally have forgotten it, you need to reset the router to factory or default settings then you have to setup the router again.

**To reset the router to default settings:1. Unplug all the cables attached to it except the power cord.
- Make sure the router is plugged into the power outlet, then hold down the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds using a paper clip or a pen. You should see the lights flicker momentarily on the front panel of the router.
2. Once the lights are stable, connect 1 computer or laptop directly to the back of the router(Ethernet/LAN ports usually they are labelled by numbers and have the same color, just pick one). If you pick number 1, check the corresponding light indicator at the front panel of the router, make sure light 1 is also lit up if not choose another port at the back of the router.3. Setup and configure the router again.



~~Hope this helps~~

(F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314): need password to setup...


Are you looking for the wireless password or the password of the router?
If you want the password of the router, then try the default password of the router. If the default password doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
If you are looking for the wireless network password, then you will need to open the set up page of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. Or any other computer which is able to go online using the router. Check the IP address on that computer. open the set up page of the router. Set up page of the router is the page where you will find all the settings of the router. under the wireless section you will find the wireless network password
