There is no shortcut to recover old password of your router instead of restting.
So reset your router and configure a new setting for this, and don't forget to save your login and password this time.

Hi robert59linksys. Have you referred to the previous answers in this post? Have you tried doing those steps? By the way, are you referring to the password to the wireless network or the password to the setup page? If it's the password to the wireless network, you can change that on the Wireless Security sub-tab and you'll see that by accessing the 192.168.1.1 page. Once in, click on the Wireless tab to see the said sub-tab.
If you are referring to the password to the router's setup page, you can change that on the Administration tab on the setup page. Just type your preferred password on the field.
Now, if you are unable to change any of those two as the router does not accept the change, you may try rebooting the router. If it still does not accept, you may have to reset the unit and start again. To do the proper reset, please press down the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds while the device is powered on. Release the button and unplug the unit. Reinstall from scratch.
Hope the above helps.

hi, hope you're well..
i am having the same problem as in i can not log in to 126.96.36.199 to edit any of my settings at all.
I would like to change my password, & i have done it before although i needed to change it again after sharing it with someone. (thanks for any "don't share it again comments" i'd like to focus on the problem i'm having as opposed to fault. Thanks.)
So before i coud not log in to change ity either, even with my username & password... so i decided to reset the router, which anyone can connect now without a password. The site (188.8.131.52) still will not let me log in with default pssword. I'vde tried: "admin/admin" ,"username / password","username / admin", "blank / admin", "blank / password" "1234", "0000" etc....
Many combinations &single words & i can't log in. I tried everything listed above, multiple times. I have succesfully reset my router again twice, made sure to follow steps, seen blinking of lights; that went fine.. just logging in i can not do no matter what.
I did the suggestion to see if my computer gets a reply from the router & that went fine. Everything seems to be ok just am not able to log in to the site..
I know this post is old, just trying many places in hope to greater chances of a reply that aids me succesfully in fixing this problem.
Take care, have a good one!
