Retreiving or resetting router password on EA6500

How do I either retrieve or reset the router password?  To edit it you have to have the current password, which it doesn't display.  If I want to reset it do I have to do a factory reset on the router?  If I do that, then I have to set everything up again, correct?

How were you able to access the router interface - did you use your linksys smart wifi account password? That should be the password that you should enter on the current password. If it won't let you change it, your only option is to reset the router and reconfigure the router either using the setup cd.

YES. After reset you need to reconfigure all things from starting.

Thanks, that's what I figured but it pays to check.
