How to Reset Password in Linksys Wireless Router

Linksys wireless router is one of the best router devices that provide excellent signal strength for wireless browsing, setting up network connection, or sharing a single connection on multiple computers. The passwords for Linksys router are set up at the time the initial router is set up and it can be altered later on. It often happens that users forget their username and password and because of which the users will find difficult to log into Linksys router. However, the password resetting is comparatively an easy task and can be done without the assistance of Linksys router support.

Steps to Reset Linksys Router Password

•    Reset the Linksys router to  restore it to the default configuration settings, hold the reset button for around 30 seconds. This would reset the default name and also access your IP address.


•    Once the router is hard reset and powered on, you will be required to reconfigure it. Connect Ethernet ports to the PC while at the same time logging onto the URL http:// 192.168.1.1/. This allows you to view a dialog box which asks you the username and password for logging into your router. In this case, the ‘admin' must be entered. Once the login screen passes off, the router is reconfigured. You can now visit the management tabs and change the password of the admin to avoid anyone else's access to the router. After the administrator password has been changed; the WEP or WAP security must be enabled to ward off any unauthorized access into the wireless network.
•    To remember the code, always prefer the correct password that is a more complex code so that others find it hard to access. Keep a printed copy of this intricate code safely so that you could restore it as and when needed.
