In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.

Can I use networking between the two computer, the one computer has the operating system which is windows XP while the other computer has the operating system which is the windows 7?


Yes you can network XP and 7 together. The trick to this is during network setup you have to change the workgroup name on your XP computer to match Windows 7. The default workgroup name on 7 is homegroup. Change the name to homegroup in XP. Next during network setup on your 7 computer when you reach the workgroup options the setup will generate a password to access your homegroup. Write this password down and don't lose it. It's kind of hard to retrieve if you misplace it (speaking from experience :) ) You should now be able to share your router and files. Hope this was helpful.

I need to reset the password on my linksys Wireless GBroadband router WRT 54G without ruining my wireless set up in my house!


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the router.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Login to the router, with the current ID/password.
View the wireless settings:
* SSID
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* network password

and change it, if you need to.
