Resetting WRT54G to Factory Defaults

I reset my WRT54G wireless router, so I could use the default password for 192.168.1.1 and the default password and username still do not work.

In such case you need to reset the router ...
1. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.
2. Then, unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for
another 30 Seconds.
3. Plug back the power back in, and keep holding down the reset button
for 30 Seconds.
4. Release the reset button.

Reset your router once more and hold the reset button at least 30-40 second beacuse complete process may take more than 20 second to completly uninstall old setting and reset it to factory mode as it came outside of the box.

 

Try this, same worked for me.

Hope, it works.

 

Thanks,
