Having difficulties with port forwarding,

I have a Linksys WRT54GS, and whenever I try to get into the setup page, it always says the password is invalid, although its the default.

I've tried resetting the router, and several variations of the default user/pass (it's either blank & "admin" , or "admin" and "admin", and I've tried things like "admins" or "administrator"). I know my mom is too noobish to set a password for the router, so it's not her.

Any help?

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

I believe default is username "admin" and blank password.

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

Try resetting your router and then try. If that doesn't work, then I'd call Customer Support.

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

I did try resetting the router.

Unfortunatly, I bought it for $5 at a yard sale several years ago so I can't call customer service as there's no warranty!

thanks anyways.

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

Rerunning the disk should allow you to reset the password.
PS - I think its an excellent router

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

username is blank.. password is admin

if for some reason this does not work, get a pen or paperclip and default the router settings with the reset button.
you hold the reset button in..then plug in the power while continuing to hold it - check the front lights for status.

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

You must have the disk to deal with password issues. The software brings the password back to the default. Did you get a startup disk?

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

I didn't get a disk with the router.

I'm looking at the link, thank you.

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

Attempted it, still no luck.

My mom switched the cords around on the router (I have no idea why), so I tried doing a hard reset. Nothing. Still same error.

Re: Having difficulties with port forwarding,

When doing the hardware reset (the recessed button in the back) hold the button in for about 30 seconds and see if that works.

Some are:

"password"

Try those,
