Turn the router off.
Hold the RESET button in, for 30 seconds.
Turn the router on, and see if it has reset.
If not, then with the router still on, hold the RESET button in, for 30 seconds, and see if it has reset.

Factory restore


According to Linksys support, you should not reset your WRT120n wireless router unless you are having difficulties with the unit. The WRT120n user guide also recommends applying other troubleshooting options before attempting to reset the device. Resetting the WRT120n restores the router back to factory defaults. After resetting the Linksys 120n, you''ll have to reconfigure the router back to your preferred settings.

Locate the Reset button on the back panel of the WRT120n. The button is labeled "Reset" and situated between the power port and the "1" Ethernet port. Press and hold down the "Reset" button for five seconds. The device resets. Open a Web browser on your computer. Type "192.168.1.1" into the browser's address field, then press "Enter" on your keyboard. A login prompt opens. Enter "admin" as the password. Leave the User Name field blank, then click "OK" to log in to your router and access your network settings.

Forgot my password for wrt120n


Looking for the Linksys WRT120N default password? You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the WRT120N default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WRT120N default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WRT120N, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WRT120N default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WRT120N default password, you can also see the WRT120N default username and WRT120N default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WRT120N default password may be different for certain hardware orfirmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WRT120N version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WRT120N version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WRT120N to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WRT120N password.
Help! The WRT120N Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WRT120N, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WRT120N default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WRT120N will be the same as the default gateway IP address configured for your network connection.

See How To Find the Default Gateway IP Address for help.

In situations where the WRT120N default password or WRT120N default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WRT120N to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WRT120N manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WRT120N from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WRT120N default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WRT120N default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.

Carlos, we have been doing the hard reset for a while already... more than 30 seconds... to no avail... still no blink and not yet resetted.


Are you trying to do 30/30/30 reset??

THIS WILL RESET TO FACTORY

You have to do this.

THere is in the back a reset button.

With the router on.

NEVER RELEASE THE RESET BUTTON UNTIL FINISHED.
1. HOLD THE RESET BUTTON FOR 30 seconds by watch
2. PULL OUT THE POWER CABLE while still holding the RESET BUTTON for 30 seconds.
3. WITH THE RESET BUTTON STILL PRESSED plugged in the power cable and continue holding for 30 seconds.

4. Then release RESET.

Hope it works.

God Bless You!!

I want to reset my linksys wireless N router, model WRT120N. I have tried holding the rest button for 30 seconds, then unplugging it for 30 seconds then holding it for 30 more seconds to no avail.


Your router should be set to its factory defaults by either pressing and holding the reset button (at the right of the LAN ports) for 5 seconds, or firing up its browser-based utility (defaults: http://192.168.1.1, username left empty, and 'admin' as password) and going to 'Administration > Factory Defaults'.
By the way, if your router's user guide happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

Password for wrt120n


Default factory settings for this router:
