So, hold on to your brains, ‘coz we’re about to drop some knowledge bombs 💣!


Routing your Way to myrouter.local Login

You’re all ready and excited to get started, right? But first, make sure that your router is powered ON. Then, establish a connection between both your router and your PC. Though a wired connection using an Ethernet cable is suggested for stability, you totally still have the option to connect wirelessly to the WiFi network of your router. Once you’re all hooked up, crack open a web browser on your computer (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, you choose).

Pro Tip: Always keep a sturdy Ethernet cable as backup, it can be incredibly handy in situations when your WiFi decides not to cooperate!

Type ‘http://myrouter.local’ or ‘’ in the address bar and hit that Enter key. Kaboom , a login page will appear. If it’s your first time, tediously enter the default username and password to continue. For Linksys routers, the username field is left blank and password should be ‘admin’. Voilà, you’re in!


Changing the Linksys WiFi Password like a Pro

Gotten inside the web interface? Sweet! Now, let’s step it up a notch. We’re now treading into wireless network kingdom! Head over to the ‘Wireless’ tab, select ‘Wireless Settings’ and input your new password in the Passphrase field. Remember, something stronger than ‘password123’, okay? Confirm it by re-entering in the field below. Now, click on ‘Save Settings’ and puff, Your Router Password has Evolved!

Heads up, changing the password disconnects your WiFi from all connected devices. So you’ll need to reconnect them all using the new password. Happy reconnecting!


Locking down your Linksys Web-Based Setup Page

The thrill doesn’t stop there. Linksys router’s default administrator password for the web page is ‘admin’. To lock out any intruders, it’s smart to change the default admin password. Remember, this ain’t your WiFi password; this is just to access the router’s web setup page after you’re connected to the router.

Log into the web interface again (same process as before). Navigate to the ‘Administration’ tab, find ‘Management’ from the left column. Here, input your new password in the ‘Router Password’ field. Put it in again for confirmation. Hit ‘Save Settings’ and your admin password has been fortified!


Oops, Lost my Router Password!

Ever had a memory black-out and can’t recollect the Linksys router password? Don’t feel like a goof. Happens to the best of us! Yet, there’s no big red panic button to smash because the web interface can be accessed again with a router reset. That’s right folks, you heard it here! But be aware, a factory reset reverts all the settings back to factory default, including the password.

To kickstart the factory reset, look for the RESET button, hiding somewhere at the back of your router. It’s a bit skittish, so you might need a needle, paper clip, or any pointed object to coax it out. Gently press & hold the RESET button. (Make sure your router is switched ON!). Release the button after about 15 seconds, like a baker perfectly following a kitkat instruction, and the router will reboot. Light flashing and all, your router would come back to its default settings just like a new-born router! And voila, your web interface is accessible again with the default router password ‘admin’!
