:4-dontkno Hello Everyone. I was recently given a router by a friend of mine that I am no longer able to contact. The router is a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, Model WRT54G. The problem is that the router was previously configured to work with my friend's in-home network. That means his name and password to access the router configuration. Without being able to change the internal settings the router is pretty much useless to me. If anyone can help get around the Name and Password or tell me how to restore all of the Factory settings, including the default security settings, It would save alot of time. Not to mention money getting a new router. If anyone has any tips or suggestions, please help me out. Thanks

first i would ask your friend.
if that doesnt work unplug it and hold down the reset button for a long long time (like 2 min or so) then try if that doesnt work keep it plugged in and hold down the reset button very long

if that doesnt work please state your routers model name

I was just go ahead and reset the router to its default settings. You need to grab a pen and flip the router around until you find the reset button. Push the reset button in for 15 seconds or so and it will reset the router to its original state. If it doesn't reset, try holdling the reset button in for 20 or 30 seconds. I don't think that it needs to be held in for 2 minutes.
