    I can't seem to get in to my Linksys Router using the password I had assigned (or thought I had) or the default. What can I do?

    On the back of the router there should be a recessed button. If you press and hold for 10 seconds, the router will reset with the default settings. If you can't find the manual (I'm assuming you can't since you're posting), the linksys website should have a copy of the manual. The manual should have the default password in it.

    There is actually a recessed button on the front of the router called "reset". I did not know that it would actually reset the password to access the router settings. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

    just to save you some time, the default password is "admin". don't type anything in the user box though
