You can reset the router to factory defaults by using the reset button. It will not have a password anymore. After that you can choose a new password yourself. All instructions are here: http://technicallyeasy.net/2008/01/how-to-reset-linksys-wrt54g-wireless/

How to reset my wrvs4400n wireless router


You'll need to hold the reset button in for 15 seconds or so. It should then reset. You should be able to connect it to your PC or laptop with a cable (wireless won't work) and when you open an internet browser, you should be taken to the configuration screen.

Forgot user name and password


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.

NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).

Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page

NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.

Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

How to change my security password for my computer because I forgot my password and I own a linksys router wrt54g THANKS FOR THE INFO


This answer is not specific to your router but, most wireless router have a 'reset' button on the back. You need to have physical access to the router. It cannot be done remotely. You will probably have to insert a pin or paperclip through a small hole in the back to reset it. You will lose all settings. Then you can log into the router, using the default settings, and set a new password.

Router password


Before following this procedure beware that the reset function on the router will probably reset the entire configuration to the factory original. You will probably need to completely reconfigure your router after the reset including WAN side IP address or dynamic and possibly PPPoE userid and password if required by your ISP.
