    I bought a new wrt54gx router and entered once the setup menu via user name <> and password <admin>.

    I changed either the user name or the password and i cannot enter now the setup menu.

    how can i fix the problem. i tried to reset the rourter via the hardware reset option at the back, but it doesn't help.

    I need some advice. thank you.

    You cannot modify the User name. I only have a version 1.0 of the WRT54GX on it the reset button is on the bottom of the router neat one of the rubber feet on it. Version 1.0 has non-removable antennas, while version 2.0 has removable antennas and the reset button location may have changed. You must press the reset button with a unbent paperclip through a hole for at least five seconds for a hard reset. That should return the router to factory defaults and you shoould be able to use the default password of "admin".
