Reset Linksys Router:

A common problem that arises for home wireless users is forgetting the Linksys router password they have chosen.

Step 1: Press and hold the reset button on the Linksys router for approximately 30 seconds while it is turned on.

Step 2: When the Power Internet and WLAN indication lights turn back on release the reset button.

Step 3: Connect your laptop to the router using an Ethernet cable and open the web browser.

Step 4: Enter in the address bar followed by clicking the "Enter" key to access the router admin page.

Step 5: Enter "admin" for the login and "admin" for the router password if you have a newer Linksys router. If older then the login name may be blank.

Step 6: Proceed with the setup of the Linksys router after reset.

Reset Linksys Router:

Step 1: Locate the Reset button at the back or bottom of your router. Using a pen or a paper clip press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds. For router models such as the Linksys Wireless-B and G routers press and hold the Reset button for 30 seconds.

QUICK TIP: Observe the Power LED on the router while pressing the button. It should blink or flash as an indication that the router is properly resetting.

Step 2: Unplug the router from the power outlet for 30 seconds. Plug it back and wait for the Power LED to be solid.

IMPORTANT: For the newly-released Linksys Wi-Fi Routers unplugging the device from the outlet is no longer required.
