What to Do If the Linksys WRT54G Default Password Won’t Work

If the password on your Linksys WRT 54G has ever been changed (which is a good thing!) Then the administrator’s default password will not work. It is not a “backup” password or anything like that.

In this situation, your best bet is to reset your WRT54G router in its factory default settings, which will restore all the configuration during the router that was purchased for the first time.

Here’s how to reset a Linksys WRT54G router:

01- Turn the WRT54G around so that you have access to the back of the router.

02- Hold down the reset button. You may have to use a pen or other small, sharp object to access it.

03- After holding for at least 30 seconds, leave the reset button.

04- Unplug the WRT54G for a few seconds and then plug it back.

05- Wait for 05- 60 seconds, give time to boot the router.

06- Connect the WRT54G router to your computer via network cable.

07- Connect to the router using your default IP address,, and enter the administrator’s default password.

08- Change the default router password from admin to something more secure. Remember password this time! It’s a good idea to store it in a free password manager.

Now that you have reset the router, you have to set up a wireless network again, as well as have to reconfigure the other settings you have set up. It includes wireless password and any custom DNS server configured with the name of the network, static IP addresses, port forwarding rules, etc.

When finished, I recommend using the built-in feature under the Administration> Backup Configuration menu to back up the configuration. In this way, if you ever want to reset the router again, you can easily restore them.
