If you have never changed it, the user name is left blank and the password is admin. If you have changed it, you can reset the unit to factory default (it will reset all settings as well) by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit for 20 seconds. Then the password will be what I described above.

I set up wifi network in my home and forgot the password I used to set it up. Is there any way to recover that password?


Unfortunately, no. The only way to access your network again is to reset the router by holding down the reset button on the back (you might need to unplug it, then plug it back in while holding the reset button). That will reset your web interface (navigate to 192.168.1.1 in your browser while connected to the router)'s username and password to some form of the following:

Username: admin
Password: admin
Username: admin
Password: password
Username: admin
Password:

NOTE: The last combination is a blank password.

Once you've entered your router's web utility, you can set up your wireless again. Don't forget to write down the password...I wrote mine on the router itself, because honestly nobody can see it because it's in my house, so I don't have to worry about it being stolen.

I reset the WRT400N password, then entered the default password admin and it does not work


here is the link to the user manual ...if you changed the admin password and cannot get in you will have to reset the router and put all new settings back in

the default user name is : wrt400 or wrt400n
and default password is admin
To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on
your computer, and enter the Router’s default IP address,
192.168.1.1 or http://wrt400n.com in the Address field.
Then, press Enter.
A password request screen will appear. (Non-Windows XP
users will see a similar screen.) Leave the User name field
blank. The first time you open the web-based utility, use
the default password admin. (You can set a new password
on the Administration > Management screen.) Click OK to
continue.

Will not connect to internet. no drivers in computer


The WRT54GS router from Linksys is a wireless-G broadband router. This router lets the user access the Internet through a wireless connection as well as use it to share resources among computers on the network. The Linksys WRT54GS comes with a CD-ROM, which will run a Setup Wizard to walk you through configuring your router. Without the CD-ROM, configuration can be done through the router's web-based utility.
  1. p 1 Launch your web browser, then type 192.168.1.1 in the address field. Press "Enter". On the password screen, leave the user name blank. Use admin for the password. Click "OK".
  2. Step 2 Select the appropriate Internet setup settings in the Setup>Basic screen. Many of these settings are obtained from your Internet Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif Prvider (ISP). Other than the settings obtained from your ISP, the default settings should work for most network applications. Set the time zone in the "Time Zone" field. Click "Save Changes" before navigating away from this screen.
  3. Step 3 Select the appropriate wireless standard from the drop down menu in Setup>Basic Wireless Settings. If in doubt as to your wireless standard, leave the default selection at "Mixed'. This will work for most network applications. Type a name for the Wireless Networkmag-glass_10x10.gif Name. This name must be identical for all wireless devices on the network. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from this screen.
  4. Step 4 Select the appropriate security method for your wireless network in the "Wireless>Wireless Securitymag-glass_10x10.gif" screen. If you do not wish to utilize security, leave the default setting of "Disabled". It is recommended to use some form of security for your wireless network. Whether you use WPA or WEP security, all devices on your wireless network must use the same encryption method and encryption key. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from this screen.
  5. Step 5 Reboot the router so all the changes take effect.

New Modem with a router for wireless Laptop


Some routers have a kind of built in firewall. You need to let the router/modem that it is okay for it to let this information pass through it. Here are your instructions
Overview

Follow the steps in this chapter and use the Gateway’s web-based utility to configure the Gateway. This chapter
will describe each web page in the Utility and each page’s key functions. The utility can be accessed via your web
browser through use of a computer connected to the Gateway. For a basic network setup, most users only have to
use the following screens of the Utility:

• Setup. On the Setup screen, enter the settings provided by your ISP.

• Security. Click the Administration tab and then the Security tab. The Gateway’s default username and
password is admin. To secure the Gateway, change the Password from its default.

There are seven main tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, Applications & Gaming, Administration,
and Status. Additional tabs will be available after you click one of the main tabs.
Setup

• Setup. Enter the Internet connection settings on this screen.
Wireless

• Basic Wireless Settings. You can choose your wireless network settings on this screen.

• Wireless Security. This screen allows you to choose your wireless security mode.

• Wireless Network Access. This screen displays your wireless network access list.

• Advanced Wireless Settings. On this screen you can access the advanced wireless features.

• WDS. The wireless distribution system feature is accessed on this screen.
Security

• Firewall. This screen contains filters and the Block WAN Requests feature. Filters block specific internal users
from accessing the Internet and block anonymous Internet requests.

• VPN Passthrough. To enable or disable IPSec and/or PPTP Passthrough, use this screen.

Windows XP is not the problem. It may be that the CD you have is unreadable in some way or is conflicting with another application. However, you don't actually need to use the CD to configure your router. If you can connect the ethernet cable between your computer and the ports labled LAN (or they may just be numbered 1 - 4), you can set up the router using the web-based utility. With the computer connected to the router, open a web browser (like Internet Explorer) and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press enter (if that doesn't work try 192.168.0.1). If you are asked for a password, leave the user name blank and try "admin" (no quotes) for the password (or "password"). This should get you into the web-based setup utility. From there you can run set-up wizards witin the uiltity.

Linksys also has free technical support for at least the first 90 days. They should be able to assist you with using the web utility to configure your wireless or possibly replace your CD or point you to a download for the software.
