Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
Need to know how to reset my router to factory defaults.
The router's admin page is http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and the default password should be either "admin" or "password" without quotes. There should be a choice under "Setup" called "Factory Reset". That will erase the settings and reset it like new.
Alternatively, you can follow the procedure as given below on all the brands I've tried (Belkin, D-Link, Linksys)
1. hold the reset button for 30 seconds (don't release)
2. unplug the power (still holding reset) for 10 seconds
3. plug power back in (still holding reset)
4. hold reset for another 30 seconds - the lights will usually begin flashing in some odd pattern
5. release the reset button
6. wait 1 full minute or until the lights stop flashing
7. unplug the power for 10 seconds, just to do a reboot
8. verify the settings (e.g. SSID) are back to the defaults

how was the name reset and by who??????
if you mean you have to reset your router to the factory default settings
(note all settings will be lost you will need to reconfigure the router)
you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings or if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

There are two ways to reset the Router's
factory defaults. Either press and hold the Reset
Button for approximately five seconds, or restore
the defaults from Administration > Factory
Defaults in the Router's web-based utility.
To reset using the Reset Button, insert the end of a paperclip into the Reset hole on the back of the router.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate this solution.

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.
if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings
hope this helps

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the login password or IP
address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
Connect to the wireless router by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or the router's LAN IP
address (default is 192.168.1.1) in the address field of your browser and then press Enter. A
login window opens:.
Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).
