  2. Login to your router by USER is Admin and default password is blank.
  3. Enable WEP or WPA encryption.

The internet set-up part is for configuring internet settings to your ISP. To changing the Router’s Password : Login to your Linksys Router page, click Administration. Then enter the new password on the Password and Re-enter to confirm fields. Click Save Settings.

You can limit wireless access to just the MAC addresses of the wireless devices that you own. Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. This is the security protocol for wirless enviroments. You'll be asked to type in a password and you'll use that gain access to the Internet.

Re: How to set up Linksys Router Password

I cannot log in to my router page. Either I have forgotten my login and password or someone has hacked me and changed it. How can I reclaim it so I can then check my internet security protocol so I can then connect to my freaking bluray player?

Can someone please help this very unsavvy non-techie? Thanks

If you have forgotten the password of your linksys router or even if you think that somebody has changed it, then what you can do to resolve the issue is simply to reset it to factory settings. To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds. Once the router is reset, the default username on your linksys will be blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
