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 reconfigure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC
to one of it's Ethernet
ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://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.
Logging in to a LinkSys Router
LinkSys Default Password
On older LinkSys routers
, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
