I forgot my password for my wireless router, and can not sign my wifes new phone up on our wifi

When your phone asks for the password, out in the Encryption key. If you didn't print this out when you installed the router, insert the CD and install the Easylink Advisor, which wil then show up down in your taskbar in the bottom right corner of your screen. Open it, click on the Support tab, and it will show all your settings. For the password requested on your smartphone, enter the encryption key from your settings in EasyLink Advisor. That did it for me. Good luck!

It seems that you're requesting the password for your Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G router. You should be able to connect to it by going to in your browser, then using "admin" as the user name and "admin" as the password (both without quotation marks).

How do i get a security code so others cant use my internert

type into your browser and hit enter. This will take you to your router page.
If you have never been to this page before this is a list of defualt passwords to enter your page.
Linksys BEFW11S4, WRT54G: admin
Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Ethernet routers: Administrator
Linksys Comcast routers: comcast
All other Linksys routers: [none]
Default passwords: Linksys BEFW11S4: [none]
Linksys Comcast routers: 1234
All other Linksys routers: admin

From here you can set your own wireless security mode and generate a passphrase or key to lock out intruders.
Hope this helps...Good luck

I can connect to the internet with my lap top trough my Linksys Router WRT54G because every time i try to connect is asking fo a security code number


On your wired computer, opened internet explorer and type or then press enter.

It will ask you for a Username and password, type admin on the username and type your Administrator password on the password field (default password is admin).

Then you will be directed to a setup page, go to the wireless teb then click on the wireless security tab. You will see your password there .

Hope I was able to help.

I have a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router. during the installation, i get to a password stage. there are already numbers filled in. I click on next and the installation does not progress. I get sent...


Just to put it out there I am a network specialist so my advise is something to consider

Try this..

1. Look on the back on the Router and while its plugged in press and hold the Reset button for a least 10 sec. You should see the lights on the front change or blink. After that let it sit for a few min. Then try to run the cd installation again. When it comes to the username and password .. Not enter a username just put admin for the password. That should let you finish your setup.

Now there is 2 ways to set up your router.

Use CD (For New Users That Are Not Familiar With Routers)


Login manually by opening your web browser and typing
Do not enter a username and for the password put admin.

That will take you to the manual setup for the router.

Once you set up your router make sure you change your password from admin ..

Hint: Use WPA Personal or WPA 2 Personal security to secure your wireless network. WEB security is junk and not very secure

Will not finish set up

Try reset ---
Hold the Reset button on the router in for about 30 seconds - then

To reconfigure, connect to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.

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."

Let me know if this helped :)

Wrt54g wireless router

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 ..

Hope that helps........
