I'm trying to use Netflix thru a Roku box and I need my password to my wireless router...problem is, I don't remember what it is.
Anyway to re-set the router's password? It's a Linksys router.

log in to your router at 192.168.1.1 and change passwords
for linksys routers the default login use to be:
username: blank or admin
there is also a small knob to reset the whole ruter back to factory default.. but here you delete all your settings too...

OK, I found that...and have reset, and now both my laptop and the Ruko box are asking for a password or key.
Apparently, this is to connect with the router...but I don't see anywhere to set or collect the password other than the general password to get into the router setup menu

I found a place under wireless security for "WPA Shared Key" that I can set.
I'll try setting up a new password so I'll know what it is now.

Thanks, I was able to get it going now. The IP address you provided was what I needed to get into the control panel.
