I forgot my Linksys E3000 router username and password.
Can you please help me?
Welcome to JustAnswer.We need to reset the router to restore the username and password ***** its defaults..Then once we reset it.. I assume, you will want to name your network again, and then secure it with a wireless password.first to reset it, the e3000 must be powered on. Then, you need something small like a pin, or the tip of an inkpen.. to insert into the reset hole firmly and press the reset button for at least one minute. If you have done it correctly, you will see all the lights flash for a second together then go out for a second.. When that happens, unplug the router, and plug it back into its power cord.The reset button is the very small hole marked in red.Once reset.. we need to get back in the router, and set the network name and passwordTo do soOn a computer connected to the linksys now.Click the link belowClick Me!!On the page that comes up, it will ask for a username and password.leave the username blank type in admin for the passwordYou are inside the router..Click on wireless, where it says SSID.. this is your network name..
