Not quite clear as to your problem. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?

Those are two separate passwords, and you may be able to retrieve them both. The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.

You may find it helpful to check the owner's manual. (If you don't have that, you may be able to find a copy online and download - be sure to search for the correct model.)

If you can access the web-based configuration page for your router, you should be able to view (or reset) the wireless security key. (Check the owner's manual for your model.)

If you're not able access the router's configuration page, and the passwords are stored, you should still be able to retrieve them by installing some free software.

For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

Linksys password recovery


Computer Hope does not assist users in bypassing this security measure. If this is your router and you've forgotten the username or password we suggest that the router be hard reset and then setup with a new username and password.
Default username and password

Before doing a hard reset on the router you may want to try the default username and password. While this is not the same for all routers, this may allow you access to your router.

Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.

If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com.
Resetting your router

If the default username and password doesn't work it's likely you or someone whose setup your router has enabled a password that has been forgotten. Thankfully most routers will have a small pinhole button on the back or bottom of the router (like that shown in the picture to the right), pressing this button in and holding on this button for 10-15 seconds will hard reset the router. After this has been done setup the router again and enter a username and password that you can write down.
hope this helps

How to know wifi password


The wifi password is set internal to the router by the router's administrator. If that was you, then you are saying you've forgotten the password. If that is NOT you, you are asking for the password. You must get that from the administrator of the router. If you have a used router, it may have been previously setup by another admin and you are trying to access it. If the previous administrator left the unit in its default state, it can be accessed at IP 192.168.0.1. The default user name is to be left blank, and the default password is admin (lower case). If that doesn't work, you ay have no choice but to reset the router to get it back to defaults so you can gain access to it. There will be a reset switch somewhere on the unit (usually accessible thru a small opening) that you must press and hold for a period of time. Be warned that this will erase all custom setting in the router and will require a new setup, but will allow you to regain access using the default user name and 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 configure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it'sEthernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URLhttp://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." While newer models, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you go past the login screen, you should be able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default usernames:

Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
Linksys WRT54G, BEFW11S4: admin
Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
All other Linksys routers: {none}
Here are some of LinkSys Router models along with its Default passwords:
Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
Linksys BEFW11S4: {none}
All other Linksys routers: admin
For those [none] username/password entries listed above, no name or password is required. Just skip or press the Enter/Return key when prompted for those settings.

How can i reset the password to my wireless router (wr850G) I've held down the reset button for more then 30 sec on and off with no luck and when I try to log into the router through a wired connection...


Did you try unplugging it, holding the reset button for 30 seconds, then plugging it in (while holding the reset button), then (after I'd say like 5-10 seconds) letting go of the reset button? Also, if you're seeing a blank configuration page, it could be that the username/password combination is wrong. Try using username "admin" and password "password" "1234" "0000" "admin" and leaving the password blank. One of those combinations should work.

If none of those work, unfortunately, it might be that somehow the router got damaged or broken somehow. You can try some of the steps from the manual (located here) to get it to work again, but you might want to look into a new router.

I have forgotten username and passsword on my router


The common username and password are the following:

Username :admin
Password :admin

Username :admin
Password :password

If these does not work try to reset the router to factory default and then the same would work

In order to reset either there would be a dedicated reset button either on front or back of the router,or there would be a reset hole where u need to put in a pin and hold it for 20-30 seconds, if none of them are available press the power button and keep it pressed for 40 - 50 seconds, it should work

Password retrieval


There?s not much you can do. Try to put the router?s default password which is ?admin? (lower case) and then copy the settings so you can reconstruct them after the reset of the router. Hope it works good luck.
