Router not Accepting the Password

Before logging in the Linksys router’s web-based set-up page you need to enter a password. By default ‘admin’ is the password unless you’ve changed it using the Linksys CD or thru the router’s web-based set-up page. If the router is not accepting your password, you have to reset it to factory defaults. To reset the router, press and hold down the reset button for thirty (30) seconds. Note: The location of the reset button varies depending on the model number of the router. Usually it’s located at the back of the router where the Ethernet ports are.


NOTE: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased and the password will be ‘admin.’
