    Well, you could reset it through the configuration software, but you said you cannot gain physical access to the AP. Short of this, or using the reset button you might have a real problem. I think you are in need of a ladder.    :)

    Mob_dream try the default password "admin" in case you have not changed it.
    It doe not hurt trying. Also there is no max limit of trying a wrong password on most Linksys routers so try all the passwords you usually might use and specially try the one in use for (SSID)wireless password.

    Hope this helps!
