If you have not changed the password previously, leave the user name blank and use the password "admin".

If you have changed the password, you will have to reset the router and reconfigure it.

To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:

  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds.
Thi will set it back to the factory defaults. It will need to be reconfigured.

HOW DO I FIGURE OUT MY PASSWORD


Hello! The WRT160N default password is admin, with no user name. If you changed the password and you forgot it you can return to the factory default settings. For this, you just have to press & hold the router reset button at least 20 seconds (it's located in the back side of the router) and then you can log in again (with no username and the password "admin" - of course, without the quotes). Hope this helps!

I have recently had internet problems and now my laptop is unable to work off my router. My internet support help told me that the security key was changed. I don't know how that would have happened. How...


Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router.
Step 4: Click on Wireless--->Wireless Security to view the Security type and the Key.
