I think you are wrong , some model has blank password, for example:
SPA-3102
There is also some model that use blank username and password 'admin' to start administrator account.

(20 years selling and fixing this stuff)

It is possible default settings are different in different countries, I am in UK.

    You are right in this case, and majority of Linksys . wrt546 has Blank user name and "admin" for password.
    Probably the user changed settings.
    By the way had been a mistyping I just wanted to indicate user the most common case blank user passwd admin, just typed the opposite.

    Thanks by the way

1 Press and hold the reset button on the LinkSys router for 30 seconds. The location of the reset button varies depending on your model, but it is usually located in a small pin hole on the side or back of the unit. Insert a straightened paper clip into the hole until you feel resistance. A hard reset occurs and the router is restored to its factory defaults.



2 Log in and reconfigure the router following the hard reset. Connect a PC to an Ethernet port on the router. Open a Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.1.1/. A popup box opens, prompting you to log in. On older LinkSys routers, leave the username field blank and type "admin" for the password. On newer routers, the default username and password are both set to "admin".
3
Go to the Management tab after you've logged in and set a new administrator password. For maximum security, choose a password comprised of random letters and numbers. This type of password is secure because it's impossible to guess.

4
Enable WEP or WAP security so that nosy neighbors cannot tap into your wireless network

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.

Hold the reset button on the router for 30 second, do not let go of it after the diag LED turns off, continue holding it until 30 seconds have passed. After you?ve done this, the router will revert to factory defaults, all of your settings will be lost. By default the default Password for the router is admin, and there is no User Name.
