Hi

Without knowing the exact model of router this will have to be a best guess, so if this doesnt work please can you provide the make and model detail, however as a rule the routers have a small hole on the back with a reset button ressed into them, if you hold this in for between 5 & 10 second depending on model, all the ligfhts follow a set pattern on the fron like they will all light up at once, or flash 3 times (different from a quick press), and then the router will go to factory defaults, HOWEVER please be aware this will also clear all firewall settings and may even clear your ISP logon details if you dont have a bespoke flashed unit by your supplier.

If this answer helps you , can you please provide good feed back and rate me.

Warm Regards

Andy

There should be a very small button hole on the back of the router.

using something small enough to fit in that hole, insert it and press the button in and hold it for 30 seconds then let it go. The lights on the front of the router may blink, go all on or a combination of both.

After you pull the small object out the router should go through a reboot cycle

It should now be reset to the default factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Change password


when i think of routers to passwords come to mind:
the administrative username and password
the wireless name (SSID) and wireless password

if you don't know the admin stuff you will need to set the router to factory defaults before you can do anything. its easy use something to push the reset button for 12 seconds. login by going to routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 and enter the default admin stuff "admin" and "password".

now to change the admin password (so other people can't mess with your router) go to the admin tab.
to re-setup your wireless go to the wireless tab

hopefully something i said answers your question

Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your
router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543

Belkin - Username: Leave the field blank Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.2.1

Have new internet company cant find disc or papers need to change ip address but cant get into router settings the default admin id doesnt work


Perform a Linksys reset:

The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).

Router setup
You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:

Plug into the router using an ethernet cable.

In the address bar of a web browser type in 192.168.1.1

Will not let me into router. only have an option for password and nothing works. tried resetting to default and it still doesnt work


are you trying to access the router set up ?
First make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the ethernet cable.
Now check the IP address and Default gateway on the computer. Default gateway will be the IP address of the router.
When you try to access the router it will always ask you for the password.
Try the default user name = admin and password = admin
or try user name = blank ( do not type anything), password = admin.
if that is not working then the password of the router must be changed.
try some different password that you use most often.
If that doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
once you reset the router , you will loose all the settings on the router.
Reset the router for 30 seconds. unplug the power. plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and try to open the page again.

The default username and password to configure router doesnt work


Try to turn off your modem first before trying to open the router's setup page. By default, there's no username and the password is admin. Also turn off any firewall you have.

I assume you want router info - default username is admin and no password (should be on a sticker on back of router), default config web page is 192.168.0.1. If these have changed and you don't know them, it's probably best to reset the modem to factory defaults - usually by pushing reset button for about 8 secs. User manual should have this info or download it from http://www.linksys.com/ Hope this helps
