Resetting factory defaults to Linksys Wireless Modem Router

Resetting factory defaults to Linksys Wireless Modem Router

Resetting factory defaults to Linksys Wireless Modem Router

Done something really stupid: Set up the modem router, them went into admin ip, changed password and user, wrote them down, and found that I can no longer access the admin page with either the defaults or my new versions. Must have ballsed up somewhere. Is there any way of 'flashing' the hardware, or a shortcut to get back the original settings so I can start again? Everything works fine, I have net access, but I can't change anything and it's all unsecure. Help!

You can reset the WAG54G Gateway by manually pressing the Reset button on the rear panel of the WAG54G for 10 seconds.
I'm not sure about the other models if they have a reset button.
