    a guy installed a wireless router wrt54g onto my pc so i can have net in my room. he took the password and i cant contact him fro personal reasons but think he may be using it to get access into my pc. is there anyway i can change this password without the old one and without losing any of the sttings ?

    No. You can only reset the router to it's default settings, which will restore the original password (admin) but also delete all other custom settings.

    you can change the password by going to the administration tab and the first option should say somthing like "router password"
