    I've been having some issues with my Linksys router the BEFSX41 Version 2. In order to try and get it to function I pressed the reset button on the back as I have so many times before to get it to work when it locks up. It apparently wiped out the username and passsword and reverted to the default username and password this time. Problem is I bought this used and have no documentation as to what the defaults are. I thought it was username: admin Password: password but I can't remember. Can anyone give me the defaults or tell me how to correctly do a reset to the factory defaults so I can access the Interface via my browser. Right now I'm locked out which makes the router useless.

    If anyone has a source for a user manual for this router I would apprciate it.

    No user name, just enter "admin" for the password and hit OK to get in.

    You can find the user's manual at, just navigate to support, downloads, and select your model from the list.

    Thank you all for the help. I tried the password admin and it worked.

    You can also find a quick reference to the default password and how to reset it in our Useful Web Links section.
