There is a "Reset" button on the back of the router. Use a paper clip or similar item to (while the router is on) press in on the reset and hold it for 15-20 seconds. This will return the router to its factory default condition, including the default logon and password. You'll have to re-enter all your custom settings, however.

Hi and welcome to fixya,

You may reset the password including the router's configuration by pressing the reset button located at the back of the router for at least 5 seconds. You'll see all lights flash indicating a full reset. Log in the router's portal by typing http://192.168.1.1 on your web browser. Log in by using admin as password. Username: <leave it blank> or try Username: admin Password: admin if it doesn't work

Hope this helps.

Then enter the configuration URL and configure the Linksys with a new password plus the wireless SSID and encryption etc.

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.
