Is the computer that you used to configure the router still working? if yes, then on that computer there is a "linksys.txt" file on the desktop. All the router info will be there. Other than that, you need to reset the router.

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.

If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and configure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it'sEthernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URLhttp://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
LinkSys Default Password
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." While newer models, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you go past the login screen, you should be able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default usernames:

Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
Linksys WRT54G, BEFW11S4: admin
Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
All other Linksys routers: {none}
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default passwords:
Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
Linksys BEFW11S4: {none}
All other Linksys routers: admin
For those [none] username/password entries listed above, no name or password is required. Just skip or press the Enter/Return key when prompted for those settings.

I don't remember the administrator/password to change the router


You are going to have to preform a factory reset. Doing this will erase all of your settings and disconnect all your devices.
All you need to do is press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.

Once you do this you are going to need to reset up your linksys device. See the guide at linksys-wrt54g-wireless-router/">http://technicallyeasy.net/2007/09/securing-linksys-wrt54g-wireless-router/

How can I find a forgotten password for my linksys?


There's not a way to recover a password on a linksys router--I would try the default admin and admin

If that doesn't work your only solution is to hold the reset button down for 30 seconds to reset it to factory defautls, then login with admin and admin on 192.168.1.1

Locked out of wireless router .


On the rear of the router is a recessed reset button. You'll need something like a pen point or a straightened paperclip to press it. Turn off the router (pull out the AC adapter plug), the plug it back in while pressing the reset button. After the lights on the router quit blinking, let go of the button. This will reset the router to factory settings. When you go to //192.168.1.1 and are prompted for username and password, the username is blank and the password is admin. (It's possible the username may be admin and the password is password. This was in some versions of the router.) Then you can set your router up again the way you want.

I need to recover a WEP key on a Linksys WRT150N Router, I already tryed getting into the http://192.168.1.1. thing, wouldn't let me in with the pass. admin, Help??


Hi Commewe

You will need to get the crrect password to get in to the web enabled setup. If you don't have the password any more you will have to reset it back to factory default. This is done by pressing the reset button at the back covered with a red plastic tab. Move the tab out of the way and press (with a pen) and hold the reset button in for +/- 20 secconds. You will now be able to login with user=admin and password=admin.

I've forgotten my password


DOH! Sorry to hear that! Unless you can remember it, you'll need to reset your router to the factory defaults, which will unlock your password. Your router should have a tiny button on it you'd typically use a ball point pen to depress, which resets it to factory defaults.

Some routers, like linksys, don't have an actual user name so be sure you're leaving that blank. If it is a linksys, the default username is blank, and the password is admin. You'll want to change that quickly and I recommend writing your password in sharpie under your router if you're the forgetful type.
