There is a small momentary reset switch on the back of the router, it is very small but clearly marked "Rest". With the router powered on, press and hold the switch in with a paper clip or similar small implement for at least 10 seconds and that will reset the router to default settings (no password), after which you can connect to the router open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar and to access your Linksys routers configuration/settings to be able to change settings and set a new WEP/WAP key.

How can I change my router password?


There is a button on the router somewhere that usually requires either a pin or a pencil/pen to successfully press.
Look all around it and if you press the button, possibly hold it for a few seconds, it will reset to default settings.
To connect to it, either connect wirelessly if you know the password, or use ethernet to physically gain connection.
Once you're at least "connected" to the router by either method, open a new browser window and type in
192.168.1.1
to enter the admin settings. You can there set up either a WEP/WPA/WPA2 key, or change the administrator password. These are different things, and reading the instructions on the page should help clarify which you want to change.

Forget user name and password for a wrt54g2


You need to reset the Wireless Router to change theuser id and the password. The factory default reset button (red) is on the back side. Before reset connect your work station or laptop to the router. Press the reset button for few seconds, it should reset the unit. To access the router through the laptop/workstation, open the IE put this IP address 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of IE. You will see the window pop up for user and password, Leave the user fileld blank and in the password filed put "admin" . After this you can change all the setting.

WARNING: when you reset your router all the connection detail will be set to default, you need to have this information or call your service provider to help out.

Want to modify my settings


Documentation is at
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G2
But this page is way more helpful
http://www.pcwintech.com/wireless-setup-linksys-wrt54g2-linksys-firmware

From a browser enter 192.168.1.1
This should give you the web interface to your router.
Your interface should look something like this:
http://ui.linksys.com/files/WRT54G2/1.5.00/

To login leave user id blank and use 'admin' as a password (default)

Note that this model has at least 3 different variants and particulars will vary:

I need to figure out how to re-set my Linksys WRT54GX2 Wireless0G Broadband Router With SRX200


This article will guide you how to change the router's password and reset it to factory default.
NOTE: Accessing the router's web-based setup page requires a password. The default password of a Linksys router is "admin". For security purposes, it is recommended to change default password.

WRT54G2 wired desktop fine, can't connect to wireless.


Hi Seth6025,

Try without using Wireless Encryption (password).

Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable

Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.

Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.

Regards,

Angel

I lost the username and password for Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router ,,how can i get them back?


Just reset your router and use (admin) for user name and password. To reset your router you can see a small hole in your router which is labeled reset. Use a pin and insert it to the hole and push.
