Re: WRT54g Security Code

Login to your routers admin page and select wireless.  From there you can find all about your security code.

Well, the same way you used to configure it the first time.  Go to 192.168.1.1 with your wired computer, username blank, password admin (or whatever you made it).  Now check your wireless tabs for your security information.

Re: WRT54g Security Code

Can I retrieve a password if I have forgotten what it was when I bought the router. Is there any other way to reset it.?

Welcome to the Cisco Home Community.

 

Reseting the router to default means you'd have to reconfigure everything agian.

Default username and password after the reset would be what as castor mentioned.
