Follow this simply step to factory reset Linksys wrt1160n.. Just press & hold the router reset button at least 20 sec. just the back side of the router to reset its to factory mode. Now it is ready for a new setting. So every time when you forget the password, and you are not able to get back it or reset it , just do the same procedure as I already mentioned above; whatever router or operating system you're using. Thanks, Rich Ask any question related with Cisco/Linksys system, I am always available on this Cisco Community for help
