    The problem is... I can't configure my router cause i dont know the username and password. I tried blank:blank admin:admin and all sorts of combinations.
    Is there a way of maybe finding my password somewhere? Or maybe there is a way of reseting my router and giving it a new user/pass? Please help me im a noob with these things:)

    Btw I have a linksys WRT54G. running windows XP.

    I need to forward some ports for a game i just bought (Worms4). I tried opening the ports through the "exceptions" tab in the windows firewall menu, but after I would probe the port it would come up "stealth". I read somewhere I need to setup a static ip.. bla bla bla... so I need the username/password for my router asap. thx:thumbup:

    password for router

    the only way to get back into the router is to "factory reset" it.

    you will find a button on the back of the unit...
    press the button in for 30sec will powering the unit on.
    this will reset the username to blank
    and password to admin
