Change Default Password

Windows 7, WRT54G2 router.  How do I change the default Linksys password from "admin" to something of my chosing?  I appear not to have the Setup CD.  Router is working well but it still has the original password.

 

Thanks

Just follow the steps on the link jlbjlb provided: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?pid=80&vw=1&articleid=3976. It contains all the steps that will guide you on how to change the default password to something else. After changing the password and you save the settings, it will ask you to re-login to the page. Just type in the new password and you should be able to re-acess the router page.
