Linksys router user and password reset


I have no idea what my username and password for linksys router are. I tried to connect to using defult (admin, admin) or (blank, admin) but had no luck. How can I reset the username and pass for the router in order to get acces to the settings?

Hi DoF,

I agree, you'll have to do a hard reset to the factory default setting if you can't access your router's setting.
Here's a reset Article.

There is a small (very small, sometimes hard to see) button, usually near the power cord that you can press and hold for 10 seconds or so. This will reset the router to it's default state. You should then be able to login with admin/admin or blank / admin.

Defaults for most Linksys routers listed here: Linksys Router Default Passwords - Administrator Login

You can also search Google for your specific router.
