198 168 0 1

Hello,
I am trying to reset the crypto "passsword" on my Linksys wireless router, model = WRT54G.
I was told to use 198.168.0.1 or ... 0.2, or 0.1 or 1.1 or 1.2 as an address on a browser.

What is the correct procedure to use?

  1. Those addresses are usually assigned to the router. IIRC, Linksys uses 192.168.1.1 by default. Once you gain access to the router's administration screen at that address, just locate the wireless security section where you'll be able to change your password.

    TIP: If you're using Windows, you can go to Start->Run, enter "cmd" (no quotes) in the little box that pops up, hit enter, and at the command line, enter "ipconfig" (no quotes). It will dump several IP addresses. The one marked "Default Gateway" is the IP address of the router.
  2. x.x.x.1 is usually reserved for the router/gateway and x.x.x.255 is reserved for the broadcast IP. Anything else should be up for grabs.
