Hi,

Please perform a reset to factory defaults:

Locate the reset hole on the back of the router - it is recessed in a small hole.
Using a paperclip or pin, push the button in for 25 seconds.
Let go, and give the router a moment to boot.
Once it is up, the network's name will be Linksys, and you can login to the router by connecting to it with a network cable, launching a browser and going to http://192.168.1.1
You can login with an empty user, and the password: admin

Then set a new network name and go to Wireless Security to set a new key.

Thanks,

James.
