Reset your router with the pin hole port on the back of your router. Unfourtunately this will reset all of the settings, but it will also reset the passwords.

Can't get in my Lyinksys router with IP 192.168.1.1 after resetting my router


From what IP address are you attempting to connect?
Please navigate to: http://www.symatech.net/192.168.1.1 and follow the directions listed under the section titled: Cannot Connect to 192.168.1.1?
Are you remembering to login using the default username (admin) and password (admin)?
On older Linksys models the username is blank and the password is admin.

go to a browser window on your computer and type the ip num for your router example linksys is 192.168.1.1 and youll see a login box with admin and usually the password is admin also. each router has a different ip according to manufacturer. just put in ip num for XXXXX (your brand) once your logged into your router go to security and look, or clear the password.

Was given a linksys wireless-g router, model no; WAG54G ver1.2, have no software or installation instructions an wonder if you can help. thanx


If the router was previously used, you need to set it back to defaults. There is a red (recessed) button in the back. Hold the button down for at least 10 seconds with the tip of a ball point pen. This will reset your router back to factory defaults.

Defaults:
Username/password: admin/admin
IP address: 192.168.1.1

You can download the manual in PDF format here or directly from Linksys here

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Could we have the model number of the router please?

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."

Reset your Linksys back to factory default if you can't remember the key/password. Just push and hold down the recessed button on the back for 30 seconds. This will rest it back to they day you bought it.

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.

Can't remember 13 digit WEP code for Linksys router. I am creating seperate accounts on Windows XP laptop and each account has to have a seperate setup to get to the router. How to find the original WEP...


hi dear

try this


On windows
Start-->Run
cmd
ipconfig /all

write down the IP address of the Default Gateway on your Local Area Network Adapter.

Open your web browser and type http://{IP address of Default Gateway}
ie http://192.168.0.1

The Web Administration Username and Password should be
Username: admin and the Password should be left blank by default.

Enable the DHCP server on the router. Save the settings.

Now enable the Wireless radio and give it a name (SSID) and use encryption (64-Bit WEP is sufficient). Give it a 5 character password and REMEMBER IT (make it easy to remember like the first 5 digits or your phone number or your street address). Save the settings and the router should reboot.

Now plug the WAN the cat5 cable into the modem and then other end into the router's WAN port. Cycle the power on the router.

Wait about 30 seconds.
Go to the laptop of WiFi desktop and enable the WiFi connection and scan for WiFi networks. Connect to your (the SSID you entered) then type in the password and you should be good.

You can always use a cat5 ethernet cable and plug it into one of the 4 switch ports on the router to get a more reliable connection.

oke
