What's the model number of your router? It's on the bottom, there is also a Version number usually like V1 V2 V4 etc. If you see that number include that in your response.

Thanks!

With my Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router, when I try to enter my username and password to access the router, nothing happens. The text I entered disappears and tells me the same as before, to enter the username...


Hi,
Look at the back of the router for Reset button and reset your router to restore factory settings. Turn over router and check in the bottom default access IP address and then type that IP address in to your browser. Then it shall ask you for ID and password. Enter `Admin` or `admin` as ID and `Password` or `password` as password. You will see a web based setup opened in front of you. Go to the Wireless Lan settings and then you will SSID so change the SSID and this would be your network`s name. Then go to subsection security and select WPA2-PSK or simple WPA-PSK then enter your desired network key. Once done with all these things the click apply and reboot if prompted. Good Luck

Password problems.


Depending on the type of router, you could have various defaults set, if you never changed them.
You can press the reset button somewhere located on the router itself, using a pen/pin/pencil, and then google your brand of router asking what the default password is.
If it is a Linksys, you could google "Linksys default password" or "Linksys default login" for example.

  3. Open up your Web browser and enter "192.168.1.1′ in the address bar.

Trying to connect to xbox live. Keep getting error that tells me to change my MTU to 1364 or higher. Im an idiot can you tell me how to change this setting. tried admin & blank password did not work....


If your Linksys is still in its factory condition, admin is the Password, leave the user blank. However, the issue may be the firmware version according to the Linksys site. Go to this link and follow the procedures for setting up your Linksys router and pay special attention to section ii and follow the link provided to ensure your firmware is up to date. If you don't want to update the firmware, then turn off uPNP and change the MTU setting to manual and 1500.

Im trying to connect another laptop to our linksys router and i need to find out the key or passphrase ???


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

Im trying to set up internet for my ipod touch and it wont let me access internet without the linksys password and the model in wrt54gs... how do i find my password


Yes, you really need a password for that (either WEP or WPA). You can ask for the password to the one who configured the router. They placed a password for security reasons. In order not all people can access net, only those who knew the password.

I forgot my password


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 reconfigure it again.

To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://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." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.

Forgotten Router Password


Hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds or more and the router will be restored to factory defaults. This also means that your configuration will be set to factory defaults also, so if your router is configured for your ISP you may loose your connection until you set the unit up again. The default password for the router is admin in lower case letters.
