Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Lost User Name And Password

Jun 19, 2011

I haven't used my Linksys WRT54G v5 wireless router for about 1 1/2 years and needed it now at a new place.I set a user name and password I've long forgotten for access to the web based security protocols for the modem and I've lost the disk for the control protocol program.I tried pressing the reset button to clear the modem and it took the WPA protocol off the modem so I can use it without any security but that's not a good thing.How do I get it freed up so I can get to the security protocols and put security back on my modem?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Create New User ID / Password For Security?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - PCs Lost Connection

Aug 19, 2011

I been using my WRT54G with no problems for 2 years now. I lost wireless. I have 1 pc wired to the router and it works fine, e-mail, accessing the internet, everything. But I have 6 wireless devices ( 2 PCs, a printer, Nintindo 3Ds, a laptop and a nook) that use the wireless part of the router at different times. Anyways, last night, one of the wireless PCs lost connection, not seeing the router. Then I checked with each of the other wireless devices. None of them see the router. I tried many different things: powering down the router for two hours, hitting the reset button for 30 seconds, I even uninstalled the router and re-installed it and ran the setup-wizard. Again the pc I have wired to the router works but none of the wireless devices can see the router.

Apr 29, 2012

My WRT54G lost the WiFi connection. I can get the internet if I connect the cable from my modem to my computer but my wireless connection is gone. So it's an issue with the router or settings. I called Linksys and was told the settings would have to be reset/updated. I was told there would e a fee. I did not want to pay a fee. I'd like to try to resolve myself.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g Lost Connectivity - Need To Reset / Configure

Dec 26, 2011

I recently set up a wrt54g router that I got used from a friend.  I pressed the 'reset' button on the back, configured it for my computer according to the instructions on the website, and everything worked fine for a couple of days.  Then I lost connectivity, tried powercycling my modem, but had to reset and reconfigure the router again.  Worked fine again for a couple of days, then the problem repeated itself, so I reset and reconfigured again.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Suggestions To Prevent Lost VPN Client Connections

May 23, 2011

Dropped VPN connections.I experienced a similar issue a few years ago with my LinkSys WRT54G router with dropped connections to my corporate network using the Cisco VPN Client.  To make a long story short the problem was the result of the following:

1. The default ""Client Lease Time" on LinkSys routers is 0 which means 1 day or 24 hours.

2. By DHCP Protocol definition, DHCP clients must renew the DHCP client IP address lease at the 1/2 life cycle of   the lease (12 hours if using the router's default setting).  This is deadly for VPN clients as the short period of time when the client IP address is no longer valid, the VPN client considers this a loss of network connection. The LinkSys E-series routers further aggravate the situation by randomly assigning new IP addresses to DHCP clients instead of reassigning the client's previous IP address and tends to favor higher host IP addresses in the defined range.

Suggestions to prevent lost VPN client connections:

1. Change the "Client Lease Time" on the router to 8640 minutes (6 days 00:00:00).  

2. Prior to establishing a VPN client connection, use the Windows Command Prompt to issue the "ipconfig /renew"
command to obtain a new IP address from the router that will be good for 3 days (72 hours).  

3. Configure your E-series router to use the <DHCP Reservation> option to pre-assign IP addresses to your systems making sure they are outside the range of the dynamically assigned DHCP addresses.  Using default settings,these would be in the range of thru as the router starts at thru

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT350N User Id And Password

Aug 2, 2011

I have the WRT350N router. to access my usb storage link from within the LAN it asks for user id and password as I want it. but to access it from outside my LAN it just connects without asking for user id and password.   My guess is it has something to do with shares and how they are setup. I can't figure out how to set it up so it asks for user id and password when attempting to connect to my storage link from the net?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Not Asking For User Name / Password

Jan 6, 2013

Having just upgraded from a WRT54G to a E2500 all I can say is that I'm disappointed with Cisco.Having spent a few hours yesterday trying to resolve issues via Live Chat (ID 130105-001270 & 130105-002081) and spending more time today - I'm truly at wits end. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable with computers and networking.I'm not sure if anyone from Cisco's Tech staff sees these posts but I don't know where else to "complain" in hopes that the next software/firmware update resolves these problem(s).
The first is my router's setup screens are totally open when using my desktop. The desktop is hardwired to the router and has the Cisco Connect software installed. I open the Cisco software and go to advanced settings. There I'm shown what my router's name is and its password. This is really strange - why would you wish to display this information PRIOR to requesting username and password? However, once there you can go right into the setup screens by clicking OK.I have also entered these screens directly without being prompted for username/password by using or my router.local via Internet Explorer 8 or Google Chrome. At other times I am denied access because IE cannot display page.I'm concerned because I can hide the Cisco Connect software however, anyone that uses my desktop has full access to my router via the web or Cisco Connect.
The second issue is that the password to enter the router and allow access to the internet IS THE SAME! When I had my WRT54G running I had one password (8 alpha characters) to enter setup screens. There was a router generated, 16 alpha/numeric character, password to allow outside devices such as laptops, TVs and game consoles access to the internet. When I set this router up I installed the 16 character password originally used so my laptop and Wii could connect without having to fool around with their settings. Everything was fine until I went into administration and changed the password to my old 8 character one. That is when I found out that the router uses this password setting under administration to control access to the internet AND access to the router settings!
I have uninstalled and reinstalled IE 8. I have ensured that my browser's history and caches are clear which they do when I shut IE down. I'm running Windows XP service pack 3 with the "proper" anti-virus and anti-malware software. My system is up-to-date.I have ensured that the router is running the latest firmware 1.0.05 build 2 and software 1.4.11299.0.I have seen other posts suggesting the removal of Cisco Connect however, I feel that this is a bandaid solution.I'm not professing  to be a router technician however, I "feel" the problem might be the fact that the password issue is the problem. Since the same one is being used for both accessing the router and having the router grant access to the net, my desktop is allowed to access the setup screens without being prompted for username and password.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Reset Password On WRT54G

Jul 4, 2007

I have changed the router username/password in the past and either I can't remember it or its not accepting what I am entering, because the router logon will not go through. I have unplugged the router for 5 mins and then let it come back on and still cant get in, pressed the reset button down and let it come back up still nothing, and I have unplugged the cable modem and router for five mins and then plugged them both back up and I still can't get the router to reset to the default admin password. In the past it has worked before but now nothing I try will let me into the router interface to set up anything.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Password Not Working?

Apr 24, 2011

I have  a Lynksys WRT54G wireless router.  It works just fine until I try to put a password on it.  I go through the basic steps, it talkes all my information and tells me everything is good.  I try to sign on the internet and it tells me my password is invalid....and YES Im sure its the right password I entered.  I went to and did all the necessary instructions, and still, it doesn't work. I can change my network name and it works.  As long as I leave it unprotected, everything works fine, but when I add the password, it tells me its invalid.  I even used 123456 so as to make sure it was the right one.

Linksys Wireless Router :: X2000 Doesn't Need A User Name / Only A Password Required

Nov 27, 2011

Just set-up a new X2000, loaded latest firmware 2.0.01, configured it via the web UI ('Browser based utility' as per the manual). Connected OK to my ADSL broadband by O2.  Configured wireless, everything OK. Funny it doesn't need a user name, only a password, my prevoius WAG160N could be configured for both.Now I want to configure the Parental Controls, BUT apart from my computer name and an Android phone name, all I see in the Target Device ADD button pop-up  are a list of repeated 'Network Device'.   There seems no way to be able to distinguish which is which device (mix of XP & Win 7 PC's and HP Printer through a separate switch), as it does not show IP address or MAC. 

I thought I may have better luck with the Cisco Connect software (which I didn't use to set-up the router).  I downloaded the latest version 1.4.11194.0, and ran this on another computer with wireless.   Apart from reconfiguring my static IP address to DHCP, and then connecting through DHCP, the software said it could not configure my router. So it never gets to a point where it installs any program on the computer so that I can configure Parental Controls. How do I get the router to show ALL the computer names in the list rather than 'Network Device' or is there a way to distinguish which 'Network Device' is which computer?
