I wanted to change the NAT settings on my Linksys BEFW11S4
wireless router to allow the hosting of internet gaming. I
set up my router a LONG time ago, and was ignorant enough
about networking to have not written down my user name and
password. Is this information stored ANYWHERE on my PC?
I'd have to move my whole PC to reconfigure my router
because I only have cable modem access in one room.

Thanks

Not sure, but isn't the default username:'admin' and the default
password:'password'? (the Linksys site will tell you in the support
section). If you changed the default settings though, I'm pretty sure they
aren't stored anywhere...

On the linksys routers, there is no default username (ie: leave it
blank), and the default password is 'admin'...

Hope this helps :)

If you power down the BEFW11S4, wait 30 secs, then power it back
up, it should revert to the default settings. Amongst other
params, the username is "" (blank) and the password is "admin".

The bad news is that a hard reset (above) may disable wireless;
that's why users are advised to have one wired connection from
a PC that can manage the router. If you are lucky, wireless
may not be totally disabled, but the SSID will revert to default
and WEP will be turned off.

No. You also need to hold in the reset button. Simply cutting power will
not reset the settings...
