With the installation CD or by pressing the button if there is one on the front.
if you forgot the login/pass it is
login = blank password = admin
you can reset your router if that doesn't work by holding the reset button on the back for 30 seconds.
then you can login to it with internet explorer browse to http://192.168.1.1
click on wireless
choose wireless security and select wpa personal.
create a passphase that you will use to join your wireless network with any wireless device.

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 do I set a password? I've been using this router for years without one... thanks


Connect Wired cable to the linksys Router via PC/Laptop

Go to browser and point to IP address 192.168.1.1 (Can be different if manually changed)

Default username : admin password: admin

Go to Wireless TAB -> Security

Select Security type as WPA2 or WPA (WPA2 preferred)

Select passphrase as YOUR KEY

Make sure to click Apply afterwards.

You have now a password on your SSID.

Wireless router connection unsecured


Open a browser and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1
It'll prompt you for a username and password, if you used the Linksys Installation CD, remember the username and password that you provided. Else, leave the username blank and key in admin for the password.

Once inside the router, click the Wireless Tab then the Wireless Security sub-tab.
Enable and choose WPA Personal and provide a password for your wireless network at the WPA Shared Key section.
Click Save settings at the bottom.

Your computers will need to reconnect to your network and asked for the security password.
