-- the default password of linksys router are all admin. if you want to access the router setup page and the default password is not accepted, there is a possibility that the password is change.

try the ff if it will help you solve your problem. make sure that your computer is directly connected to the router

-- go to internet option and delete temporary internet files, cookies and make sure to delete cookies to make sure that you are not accessing a cache page

-- try to reset the router by pushing the reset button at the back for 10sec

-- try other computer to check if that is also experiencing the same problem

-- if the problem is still the same reset the router for another 30seconds

Try going in though its IP address to setup. In internet explorer, type in (with nothing else - NO http - NO www) just type: - then use
username - type admin
password - type admin

That should get you in without using the cd software.

How can I change my password

Enter the account name and password to open the router setup utility.

Navigate through the setup utility until you find the screen that will let you change the password. You will need to enter the old password to change it.

Decide on a new password that has good security to a hacker. The best password is more than 8 characters and uses both lower case and upper case letters and numbers. Some will allow you to use special characters also. Do not make the password anything that can be found in a dictionary or any date of significance.

Enter the old password in the change password page of the router. When prompted then enter the new password. You will be asked to enter it twice to confirm that the correct password is entered.

Immediately, record the new password in some secure location that you can find if you forget it.

Confirm the password change on the router page and log off the router. To check the information and that the router has been setup correctly with the new password, open the router address in the browser again and login with the new information. If you are able to login, you have successfully changed the password.

Dear sir i want to use my netgear wgr614 router as access point. please give me suggestion how can i do that

In Your web browser type in,it will ask you for a user name and password,user name is admin and password is password,once you enter the netgear setup utility find the section that ask you if you would like to use as an access point,check it,save changes-you will have to download the user manual on detailed step by step instructions from netgears website in order for it to work-i would download the user manual before you do anything at all and read first what has to be done-Good Luck-Access points are not easy to configure and must be connected via an ethernet cable when doing the initial setup-Have Fun

Acer aspire one d255 hi,ihave new aspire bun not connected in network

Hi Friend,

While connecting to your network if it asks for a network key and if you are not aware of that, please follow the steps:

Type in the web browser and hit enter. If you have not changed the router password then kindly enter admin as the password and leave the username blank and hit enter.

In the router setup page click Wireless and click Wireless Security. Whatever the security mode is selected you will get the shared key over there which you can use while connecting your laptop.

Have lost my password and cant get another laptop on my wireless as i dont know it sob

You'll need to reset your router and then go back through the steps of reprogramming it. The reset button is normally located on the back of the router and pin sized.

You are supposed to only type in "admin" for the password, the username isnt necessary. Try it.
