First, you'll need to reset the router, this is typically done via a tiny reset button located on the back of the router (you'll need a paper clip to press it). After that, changing the password requires you to know how to access the router options. This is different from brand to brand, but typically by simply going onto Google and searching for your modem's address (might be an IP address or actual address, like linksusrouter). Then just go into the settings, find the "change password option" and viola.

you will have to reset it. there is a small inverted reset button, hold it in for 30 seconds and it will reset to factory default. There will be a factory default user and password you will need to use at that point.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the router.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Login to the router, with the current ID/password.
View the wireless settings:
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* network password
You can open a browser and put 192.168.1.1 on the address bar, that should open the Linksys user interface page, you would be asked for the current username and password to access the settings and get to where you can change the password.
If you don't know what the current username and password is, you can hard reset the router by pushing the reset button on the back of the router for 10-15 seconds.
After that you can try to access the Linksys user interface, login by leaving the username blank and the password is "admin"
If you know the current password, use your computer's web-browser to access the built-in web-server "inside" the router, and change the password.
If you don't know the current password, straighten a Norwegian paper-clip, and insert the end into the small hole in the back of the router. This will "reset" the router to the "factory" settings, including the default password. Then, as above, login and set a password.
Yes, If you know the routers' administration password, you can log in to the administration settings and change the password. If you are asking if you can change it without knowing the admin password, not likely.
Maybe someone took the ownership of the router by changeing the password. If it's not letting you in with the default username: admin Password: admin
or Username admin Password: (no password at all)
Than you shold do a manual reset on the router, just grab a pen and there's a reset button on the back of the router, push it and it sets it back to factory defaults, than you should be able to log in with the router's default password and do the security.
