With the router turned on
1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The reset button is on the back of the router and is inside a small hole. You'll need a paperclip or a pen to press it,

The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted
2. Open up your Web browser and enter in the address bar.
3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter "admin" as the password.

Unable to get laptop too connect wireless ..saying codes /password dont match

You should check the password which you have given for the router. Either you are typing it wrongly or you have forgotten the correct password. Try resetting your password and then try to connect your laptop via that router. Your problem will get solved

How i can change pasowrd on linksys_G wirless

You need to access first the router's setup page ( ). Default username should be left black and default password is admin. Once logged in, click on the administration tab on the black bar on top of the page. Now you will be on the Management page and this is where you can change the password. First line would indicate Router password. By default , you will see lots of dots on the field. Just delete all of the dots and type in your preferred password. Retype the new password. Scroll down to the bottom ,click on save settings. Hit continue. Restart your router and try logging in with your new password.

I forgot my router password and i hit the reset button for thirty seconds but admin still doesn't work for a password

try admin in the user name and admin in password, both in lower case. If that doesn't work then disconnect all the devices from the router. disconnect the modem also. Reset the router for 30 seconds again. after pressing reset, unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. wait for a minute. now try to open the router page. try admin in password. If that doesn't work, then change the computer, try on other computer or delete the browser history, delete files and try it again.
If you are using Internet explorer, then go to tools , internet option, delete cookies, delete history, delete temporary internet files. Try again.

I cannot set password

There are 2 users in this router, 'admin. and 'user', default password is blank. admin can change password of user without having old password, user can change his own password, admin can change password of his own by supplying his old password then new password twice. To log in to this router, default address is user name admin and password blank. You may now change password from tools menu.

If you forgot user password then log in as admin and change password, If you forgot all password then only way is to reset router from rare pin hole. Pressing reset for 20 seconds.

Forgot lock code for utstarcom shuttle

press ## v i r g i n #. That will reset the phone. your lock code will be the last four of your phone number. it won't delete anything you downloaded, nor will it delete your phonebook.
