Hi Maryonshine!

 

What password are you referring to - is it the wireless security password or the router's login password? If you're referring to changing the wireless security password, you can refer to this link for instructions: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?pid=80&vw=1&articleid=19073. If you're referring to changing the router's login password, this link will help you: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=f8ddfa094408462c86100958adba3817_3976.xml&pid=80&r....

Re: Lost Linksys Password

What is the address (ie: 000.000.000.000) to access the router?

What is the make and model of your router? If it's a linksys router, the default IP address is 192.168.1.1 and that is the IP address you will have to use to access the router page. For more info how to access your router page, refer to this link: Accessing the router’s web-based setup page.

You can not login with another account if you have admin login & you forget the password. You have no choice to go to the router page and configure a new user account to access router network because you already lost you password.

 

So, I would recommended you to reset you router.Just press a small button behind your router device to reset it. Press & hold it for 20 second. Your router has been reset. Its time to create a new account to acess network.

 

But, if your laptop still asking for password....so something wrong with windows vista hardware compatibility with Linksys router. Cheak your hardware & software configuration or do reformat your computer if it is still not working after system restore.

 

If any other kind of Linksys router problem, reply with your question. I will try to help you to troubleshoot your Linksys wireless router problem.
