Look on the modem for a reset button, usually one you will need a paper-clip to press. Many modems will have this (not familiar with yours) and will completely reset your modem (IP's, passwords etc)

Hi i dont know where is the pin number in my linsys wrt54g v5 router,thanks

If you mean the wifi pin you will need to log in to the router to find it. This is fairly simple and goes as follows. Enter into the address bar of your browserd_schrute.png
The default username and password are: (blank username) password:admin (lower case)
Click on the 'wireless' tab at the top of the web admin page
Click on the 'wireless security' sub-tab
the pin should be displayed.

How do i reset the password?


Welcome to Fixya. If you want to reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default username is blank and the password is admin.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

I cannot log into the linksys website via the ip address in order to change the password....that I forgot for wireless connection. I can only access the web through direct ethernet...

If you cannot log into the 192.168.... address, you can reset the box by holding the reset button for 10 seconds (try the "admin" password first). If you reset the box, you have to re-setup everything for your wireless, but it is better than not being able to use it. There is a little red button you can access with a pencil,

Need cd or software for Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Software for this product is really not needed unless you want to reset or upgrade the nvrom of the router. To access it you should first reset it to factory default (unplug router from all cables and power, hold in reset pin with a small object, then plug in power cord, wait 30 seconds then release the reset, wait 30 more seconds then unplug power).
Next reconnect all cables and restart the router. (wait 2 min.)
Set your computer's network card to dhcp and start your computer.
To log into the router open a browser window and enter: (don't forget the http://)
An access screen will pop up:

User: admin

Good Luck and have a great day...

Can see the wireless network, but can not find the password to log on.

Do you know how to access your linksys router? Do you know the password on the linksys router?

If not you will need to reset the linksys to restore the password to it's default and then reconfigure the router from scratch.

To reset the router use a ballpoint pen end press 10 seconds on the reset button in the back (ATTENTION: YOU WILL NEED TO RECONFIGURE THE ROUTER)

Once you reset it the password to access the router is admin. Connect to the router using a cat5 cable, point your browser to :
leave the user field empty and type admin in the password field.
You can now go ahead and reconfigure it.
