The Rest Button on a Linksys Router

To reset the router

While the back of your router might look different, the reset button is usually clearly marked. To reset the router to the default password, insert something thin–like a pencil point–and depress the red button. Hold that for a few seconds. The password for your Linksys router should have reverted to its default.
Try accessing it from a machine that is plugged directly into it. The default address is usually http://192.168.1.1. When you gain access to the router then you can change the password to any word of your choice.
