Linksys Wireless router WRT54G v2.2

Hi there

I have jst been asked to open a port on our wireless router (Linksys Wireless router WRT54G v2.2), however no matter what i try i cant seem to access the routers web based home page!

i know the usual default ip address is but i did not configure this router and i cant seem to gain access t it and im running out of time to get this done!

The router has a modem connected to it, it then connects to our switch and supplys the network, i do not want to reset it incase it knocks out our internet access!

can someone please give me some ideas as to how i may access this home opage our open this port up?

i work till 5 but may be able to access th net tonight and answer any questions people may have!

Thanks in advance


RE: Linksys Wireless router WRT54G v2.2

On your machine (that is connected to this router), do an ipconfig - what IP is listed as the gateway?

RE: Linksys Wireless router WRT54G v2.2

the IP listed as the default gateway is

once this is put in to the address bar i am prompted for a username and password but no matter what i put in it just reappears minus the username and password!

if i do a reset, will this have any major affects on our network??

RE: Linksys Wireless router WRT54G v2.2

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell completely.  Once you reset, it will be back to factory defaults.  You can set the router back to & it will assign DHCP addresses in that range.  But what you don't know is if there are any port forwarding (do you have any servers or services that are accessed remotely?), static address assingments, special firewall configurations & the like.  There's really no way to know those settings without accessing the router's admin interface or some sort of written documents defining the network configurations.

Would the person that set it up have left behind any kind of document that might contain the password?  Maybe even taped to the bottom of the router (wishful thinking).

have you tried
admin or admin5
as the password with no uersname?
