I have lost my password to my Cisco Linksys E1200 router. My son can't log into (Onyx-Eagle) which is my name for internet use, it was assigned to me. So what do I do, to recover my password, or replace it with a new one?
Welcome, On your computer connect to the router either through wireless or using a LAN cable. Once connected open your web browser and in the address bar go to 192.168.1.1 Username: admin or leave blank Password: admin Click on Wireless Click on Wireless SecurityIf using WEP copy down Key 1 If using WPA copy down the passphraseThanks
I tried admin for username and admin as password. It just flashed and is still telling me to put it in.
Did you try leaving the username blank?
Just blank? I tried to leave spacebar blank
Yes leave the username blank and only use admin in the password
That didn't work. Putting the word blank in as username or leaving it blank didn't work.
Sounds like the username and password on the router was changed when it was installed. The only way now is to reset the router back to defaults and then configure the router's security.On the backside of the router is a small button the size of a pen head. Using a paper clip hold the button in for 10 seconds and release allowing another 30 seconds for the router to reset. You will then need to reconnect a device back to the router's network which will be either linksys or ciscoXXXX (X's randomized number)On your computer connect the router either through wireless or using a LAN cable. Once connected open your web browser and in the address bar go to 192.168.1.1
