Linksys Login Issue

Stupid problem I always run into.

I reset my linksys wireless routers. Have two WRT100, and WRT54Gl.

I can log in with default -blank/admin. I reset the password and save it.

Can never get back in. Maybe I am using the wrong username - admin, Admin, Administrator, administrator?

Help and tHanks SJMP

The WRT100's default password is blank and the username is admin... while the WRT54G the username and password is admin.  Remember, it is case sensitive.

One other thing you should do... upgrade the firmware on these devices.

I will upgrade the firmware and give that a shot.

If you dont mind me asking a related question about setup on WRT54G

Both of these routers are meant to give wireless access through our network. DHCP disabled
On the WRT100 I can set the WAN to Static - give it a LAN ip and internal DNS info so connected users can get internet access and they get DHCP from LAN.

But on the WRT54G it will not let me do this, since both LAN and WAN IP are on the same subnet.  Any idea how to fix this. It was working before I blew away the config.

Are you OK with the WRT54G now?  Check the gateway setting on this router and make that it points to the same gateway as the WRT100.  You should work also check the DNS IPs again and make sure that they are correct.

Can you ping the DNS servers from the router?
