The default password of the linksys router is admin just leave the username blank, if admin did not work reset the router so it will be back to its default settings with default password admin and leave the username blank ..

How do i add a password


To secure your Internet connection from unauthorized access you need you encrypt your router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Won't accept password


Which password? Are you trying to connect to the wireless network. Make sure that you have the correct network password. Open the setup page of the wireless router and check the wireless network key WEP WPA.
If you are trying to open the setup page of the router then try default password admin.

" 401 unauthorised " is the error message i


No, but you can just reset the whole router and start from scratch. Hold the reset button on the rear of the router for 60 seconds and your will restore the unit to defaults, at which point you just need to reconfigure all of your configuration settings and password, as well as your wireless access code. Let me know if you require any additional assistance.

I have a linksys wrt54G, I am trying to log into the Router to change the security settings by using "192.168.1.1" which has always given me the prompt for Username and Password. It is no longer giving me...


You can try to change the browser settings.

1. If you're using Internet Explorer, click on the Tools tab
2. Click Internet Options
3. Click on the Security Tab, then under security level for this zone , set it to medium or low. Hit apply
4. Click on Custom Level , scroll all the way down and on User Authentication, set it to prompt for username and password. Click OK.

My hardwired computer gets on line but the other two wireless can't. I've reset the router several times but no luck. Checked all the connection still no luck.


Check if the router is assigning IP addresses to the Wireless devices. Also se if you hard-wired desktop has been assigned an IP address manually. Else try to assign IP's to wireless devices manually (Depends on your setup)

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

I can't access my linksys router set-up page. I keep getting this message: "401 unauthorized" authorization required


" 401 unauthorized" authorization required " .This message means the user name and password for the router is not correct. the default password of the Linksys router is admin with no user name ( leave it blank )
If the default password is not working then the router password must be changed.
If you don't know the password of the router then you will need to reset and reconfigure the router.
Once you reset the router , it will come back to the factory default settings.

Have you secured your Linksys from unauthorized access?
The encryption code protects your wireless router from unauthorized access. The wireless card in your computer/laptop needs to be configured with the router's encryption settings before the computer/laptop can access the router.
