IP address is 192.168.1.1
NOTE: The default password of your router is "admin" without any username. It is recommended to change the default password for security purposes. If you forgot your password, press and hold the Reset button at the back your router. To learn how to reset the Password of your router, click here.

Changing the Router's Password
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. To learn how, click here.
Step 2:
Click the Administration tab.
Step 3:
Enter the new password in the Password field and in the Re-enter to confirm field.
Then click "save settins" button

    If you are setting security key/password:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    Setting up your Router's wireless security is the easiest way to prevent other people from using your wireless internet connection. Your Linksys router supports three (3) of the most commonly-used wireless security types WEP, WPA and WPA2 Personal.


    WEP
    WPA
    WPA2 Personal


    To setup Wireless Security on your Linksys Router follow the steps below:

    Step 1:
    Access the Router’s web-based setup page. 192.168.1.1
    Step 2:
    On the Router’s web-based setup page, click the Wireless tab then click the Wireless Security sub-tab.

    Click the drop-down arrow for Security Mode and select WEP, WPA etc..

    Enter a unique word in the Passphrase field, then click Generate.
    The result will be a string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for key1.

    NOTE: Take note of what is in Key 1. This key will serve as the wireless security password. Keep this key confidential.
    Ehen click "save settings"

Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip, and insert it into the small hole in the back of the router, to reset the router to its "factory" settings, including the password.
