    And we're supposed to know your router credentials?

    Just do a hardware reset. That should reset it to manufacturer default. Then do a google search for the model defaults.

    just to check, admin is the password, you need to leave the username area blank.

    are you talking about the routers username and password or the wireless WEP password?

    The router does come with a manual by the way, which tells you the default login.

    Well it's pretty standard, linksys is admin no pass, netgear is admin with the password "password"

    You guys have this backward. The default for linksys is
    User = [blank]
    pass = admin

    Perhaps you got one that was a return, whoever bought it first might have changed the default password. I've seen weirder things.

    Anyway, on the back of the router there is a reset button. Plug the router in and use a pen to push and hold the button for 5 seconds. You should see the lights on the front of the router flash once you've held it for long enough. That should reset the router to factory defaults.

    linksys says to hold the reset button in for about 30 seconds

    Well, that'll work for sure. Either way, when the lights on the front flash it is resetting.

    What model? I have 4 different versions of the WRT54G series and mine have never had usernames, nor the ability to even setup usernames.

    Every version of the 54 G models allows this.

    Not true. I just tested this. You can enter a password. Nothing more and nothing less.

    by "setup usernames" i meant you can set up the admin user name with whatever password you want.

    Well, okay. But they still don't use admin as the username. If I point my browser at the web interface I can type literally anything I want into the username field. As long as the password is correct I will be logged in. They simply don't use usernames.

    It does, it just logs in with the username admin no matter what.

    Well then let's call it root. I'll concede to that since most of them (barring only the V.5's) run a very stripped down linux kernel.
