Hi Welcome to JustAnswer.com Let me know once ready to talk.
How about getting the password XXXXX than resetting it?
If you remove the password XXXXX unauthorized person in range can connect to your router
and use your internet
how do i do that?
Do you have any computer connected to Linksys via WIRE?
We can use that to get the wireless password
I will give you step by step instructions
So that it will be easy for you.
Use the desktop to perform these steps
Open Internet Explorer >
Type http://192.168.1.1 in Address bar >Hit Enter >
If that fails, use http://192.168.0.1/ instead >
Login page for Router will open >
Leave the user name blank. And use admin for password. If that fails, type admin for both username and password >
Hit Enter >
Once inside the router setup, let me know for further instructions.
how do i get there?
Let me know.

Please try carefully with both the addresses
from the wired computer
tried user blank and admin on both didnt work
try username=admin and password=admin
try username= and password=admin
username should be left blank here
did that 2
It seems like you have changed your router's password XXXXX
Do you have any computer connected to router via wireless?
What is the operating system of the laptop?
Is it Vista?
ya thats the proublem and cant rember what password XXXXX
Vista 32-bit or 64-bit?
has both but use 32
so now what?
Can you find it using this guide: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218
do this from the vista laptop connected to wireless already
Download this free tool from here to this computer(which is connected to the router) : http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wirelesskeyview.zip
Open it and double click on the WirelessKeyView.exe file. If that does not show the key, turn your antivirus and firewall off and try again. After noting down the key, turn the firewall/antivirus on.
It will list you the network key of your router.
how can i test this now?
Have you got the key?
i think so
It will be under key(ASCII) in the WirelessKeyView window
Note it down carefully
It will work
You can test
by try to connect any device to the wireless.
