  • 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 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.
    You want to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router.

    After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your nosy neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. I am picking up 4 networks with my pc antenna.

    Hope i was helpfull.

    I have a 2wire gateway modem/router and i need to reset it, but i dont have the default password located on the bottom of the modem/router because it fell off. I need to find out what the default password...

    Open your Internet browser.
    Type into the browser's address line.
    You should see your key on the setup page.

    Back-Up Key Codes

    In most cases, you will receive a key code from your ISP. This key code is used to activate the 2Wire gateway. If you did not receive a key code, you can use the key codes provided in the following table.

    If your Internet Service Provider did not provide you with

    a user name, password, or IP address to set up your

    Internet connection, your broadband connection most

    likely uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)

    and you should use this key code.


    If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoE

    username and password to set up your Internet

    connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

    Point Protocol over Ethernet and you should use this key



    If your Internet Service Provider assigned you an IP

    address to set up your Internet connection, your

    broadband connection uses static IP (Internet Protocol)

    and you should use this key code.


    If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoA

    username and password to set up your Internet

    connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

    Point Protocol over ATM. In this case, you would use this

    key code and Microsoft Dial-up Networking to connect to

    the Internet.

    Hello, I dont think you need the drivers for Router. And first of all you need to connect your modem to your router through ethernet cable. And after connecting your modem, configure your wireless router by typing this IP address in internet explorer: The user id is admin and the password is password. Then detect your broadband connection by using the option in the router. Try connecting your Laptop to wifi after setting the connection.

    HELP! Can't get Wi-Fi Settings On Ipod... :(

    You will need to go into the router's admin console and get the password. This information will be in the security tab within the admin console. The procedures vary for each type of router. Most routers have a reset button on the back that will set the router back to factory. However, I highly recommend that you access the router's admin console to insure the security of your internet connection. If you are unsure of how to access the admin console and no one is available to assist you in person, google the model number and look for a downloadable manual.

    Netopia 3347nwg wifi locked!!!

    Hello michael,

    The lock you see indicates that the network you are trying to connect to requires a password for authentication.

    You can access your ipod settings and enter the credentials by following the below steps:

    1- First connect to your closed Wi-Fi network
    2- Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name.
    3- Choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password.

    This should be it.

    Have a good day.

    To connect to the router, you can change the wifi settings on the router by going to in your internet browser and typing in the default username and password. If not, you can reset the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds on most routers.

    I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router

    1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
    2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing
    3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
    4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
    5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
    6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
    7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
    Hope this helps!
