You mean the router password? By default there's no username and the password is admin. If you can't remember your previous password, you can just reset the router. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds, plug it back in. It should be defaulted back to admin as the password.

I recently changed my internet service from cable company suppplied to At&T DSl service. How do I reconfigure my wireless rrouter to accpet DSL service. I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Thanks


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Can you please help me set up password protection for my Lynksys wireless? Everyone in my neighborhood is using my service and it is slowing down my access.......


http://192.168.0.1/

Remember this address and/or write it down, this address is the common address for your lynksys.

When a popup comes, asking for username/password.
Username: Admin or if it dont work try Superuser
password: password

Then look for Wireless Setting > WPA-PSK(Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) > Then on the bottom should say security passphrase/password (Type in something you will remember or only you will know) >Save settings/Apply and exit.

Now since you've changed your wifi, you need to manually delete and search for your wifi agian since the settings are changed.

If your using Vista: (64bit)

Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Network > Highlight your Wireless connection ( Select Remove) > Add > Then go through the process of finding your wireless connection and you magically got back your protected wireless.

Hope this works.

Just set up Lynksys router to this computer. I tried to use my lap top (new) to get to my internet and I need a user name. The router model No. is wrg2t


If you are talking about the default username for the router GUI it is blank (nothing).
The password is 'admin' (without the quotes).
If you are looking for a ISP username it will be provided by your ISP after registration.

Wish to change my password on the Belkin G Plus Nimo router and cannot remember where to go to get in and do it


1. Access the router's setup page by going to 192.168.2.1.
2. By default, there is no username and no password. Otherwise if you have created a password to access the router's page already then use that password.
3. If you want to change the administrative password of the router, go to "System Settings".
4. If you want to change the wireless security for your wireless connection, then go to wireless settings tab of the router.

If Encryption is turned on in the WRT54G and you don't have the key, you could try resetting the router to default settings and starting over. There is a small hole on the rear of your router with "Reset" over it, just hold the button inside the hole down for at least 10 seconds with the WRT54G powered on and you'll see the lights go out indicating the reset took place, then power down router, modem, and PC, then with all components connected after a minute boot the Modem then Router and then your PC.

I hope this helps and good luck.
