Do you have a Linksys router and you have forgotten your password or you want to reset the password to the default. Firstly you must have physical access to the router. This article is basically for WRT54g and model BEFW11S4 If you have changed the password from the default password and have forgotten the default or your router did not come with any documentation. To regain access to the router try the following. In the username field leaveit blank and in the password field type admin
Username / leave blank password / admin The Rest Button on a Linksys Router
To reset the router While the back of your router might look different, the reset button is usually clearly marked. To reset the router to the default password, insert something thin--like a pencil point--and depress the red button. Hold that for a few seconds. The password for your Linksys router should have reverted to its default. Try accessing it from a machine that is plugged directly into it. The default address is usually http://192.168.1.1. When you gain access to the router then you can change the password to any word of your choice.
Reset the router using the little reset button on the back. (Hold for a few seconds) It should be able to connect using default settings. Then you can log on and configure it with your router. Go to http://192.168.1.1 and you can set up your security and port forwarding if needed. (I recommend WPA or WPA2 for security, as I have cracked WEP passwords myself using brute force.) Let me know how this works out. If it doesn't work, I need more info such as your wireless network card model.
Try a factory reset on the router, in most cases this can be done by holding the reset button on the unit down for 10 or more seconds. Once this is done you may have to enter any settings into the router again.
Also, try download the latest firmware from http://www.linksys.com and upgrade the firmware on the router.
Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.
looks like the new laptop has been assigned the same ip address as your old latop so it wont allow u access...renew the ip address, assign ur old lap top a new one or just reboot the router so it will issue u with a new ip address.
