Server username & password

I am trying to access the Web-base wireless set up page, the window pops up that says

The server at WRT54GS2 requires a username and password.

Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).

I don't remember this info, is there anyway of resetting to select a new username & password?

Re: Server username & password

Welcome to the Cisco Home Community.


Try to leave user name blank and type admin in the password field.

You can refer to this document on how to change your routers login credentials.

[ Edited ]

this is the security of your router. If you initially setup the router without changing its settings then by default

1. leave the username blank

2. type admin on the password field.. all lowercase

3. press ok or enter on your keyboard


you should be able to log in to your router's web-based setup page


let me know th progress.. thanks
