I successful set up my WRT54GR router. Now I want to add a new device but can't find or remember my user name and password. So I decided to reinstall the router only to find that the http://192.168.1.1 page asks me for my admin password - having sensibly created one 4 years ago which I have now forgotten or where I wrote it down. How the hell do I get around this - if at all or do I have to buy a new router and start all over again!
All networking had been working great until recent power failure. Then laptops failed to connect, found my router WRT54G had become insecure. I open the router using "admin", reset Wireless Security and reset my password. Wireless laptops, wireless camera now works fine but now iPhone will not connect? I have double checked the password, it is the same as the router. Is there something else in the router that needs changing for the iPhone connection?
My BOSS have a iPhone 3GS. He tells me that iPhone wireless connect to his home AP. Why he has to input password everyday whenever he first time wireless connects to WRT54G at office. What should I do for my BOSS to wireless connect to WRT54G without input password everyday? By the way, I set wireless security as WAP2-personal AES.
I am having problems with connectivity and my iPhone 5. The Wi-Fi is okay in some parts of my home network, however in others it is abysmmal. When I bring my computer to the places where the iPhone has problems with signal strength/staying connected the computers have full or almost full strength and no problems. I upgraded firmware for the router, spoke with applecare, have reset the router multiple times, and have been trying different channels. I had the phone in with the Apple store where they concluded nothing seems wrong with the hardware. The phone doesn't seem to have problems like this on other wifi networks I have tried. Using a speed test on the iPhone at home in the low connectivity areas results in horrendously poor latency numbers.
I want to know how to change the Router Password. I have two computers running XP connected to my WRT54G; one via cable and the other wirelessly. I'm using WEP security. The router setup defaulted to "admin" for the Router Password; I'd like to make it a stronger password.
i'm attempting to access the router's configuration options (192.168.1.1) and it's requesting a user and a password, i have not set any of them so i'm using the defaults, been, user (blank), password (admin) but is not taking them; after 3 attempts it gives me a 404 error.
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.
My router has been in use for some time. WRT54G. I did the set up from the disc and instructions and it's been no problems. I would now like to add a password to log on to it from a wireless computer such as my laptop or the other household computer.
im trying to reset my linksys WRT54G wireless router because im trying to change some settings. i tried the 192.168.1.1 and it asks for a password, but i dont remember putting one on....i tried the admin in the password field and empty name field but that dosent work.I've tried holding the reset button on the router itself for 10sec+ but that dosen't seem to do anything.
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 http://192.168.1.1/wireless.htm 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.
I have a linksys WRT54G router. I am able to get to the admin menu via IP 192.168.1.1 but can not figure out where to to navigate to or how to put a (password on the wireless access) so my neighbors wont be able to use my router to get on the internet.
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?
I just dug my router (wrt54g) out of the closet and hooked it up but I cant remember my name or password for the router. Is there anything I can do that doesn't involve paying linksys any sort of "fee"
I was given this router (it's my 3rd one) and cannot get the reset button to reset the password. I have run throught a 30/30/30 reset as well as just holding the button in for the standard 30 seconds.
I know the router works, as in i can ping it. It asks for a password when i go to 192.168.1.1, but *blank* and "admin" do not work. When i click the cancel button it displays a pink(salmon) screen that says "401 Unauthorized Authrization required". (all of this is when i am connected to it with an ethernet cable to #1)
When it's sitting there it has an led lit over power and one ove wlan which flickers from time to time.
Time Warner used remote access to get into my wrt54g system and create a new user id/password for security. As a result, my hp printer will no longer communicate with my computer. HP says to hook up a usb from router to printer, but there's no usb port on the wrt model I own. I hooked up a usb from computer to printer but it did nada...
I have tried multiple times to hard reset my Wireless G WRT54G ver.2 router, but have had no success. I held the reset for 15 sec, 30 sec, 2 min, etc and also tried holding it and then unplugging it and then plugging it back in. I've tried everything that I have seen suggested. My problem is that I don't know what the password is to access my router's web utility thing and I need to change the IP address. With every reset attempt, I hope that the default admin password will work, but sadly no.
I'm trying to setup a Linksys wireless-g router model number WRT54G with my DSL connection. I followed the basic instructions that came with the router and towards the end of the process it says detecting network settings with a % bar. The bar fills to 100% and then asks for a password. I've tried the password my DSL company gave me along with various other things like admin etc. After I enter the password I hit enter and it just asks me for the password over and over again.
I have a WRT54G V8 and everyone says the username to sign is is blank and the password is admin. I have tried this and it does not work. I have also reset the router several times and this also does not work.
