    Perhaps someone can assist.

    I can change the password for the wrt54gs and wre54g products from
    Linksys but do not know how to put in a User Name for added security.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    I doubt that you can. Neither of my Linksys routers has a username,
    just a password. Your browser displays a standard dialog, not
    specific to Linksys, that includes a username field. You can leave
    that field blank to login to the router. If you want your browser to
    remember the login details, you'll probably need to specify a dummy

    There isn't a way to change user names. If you want to use automatic login
    (which it sounds like you don't, but in case you decide you do) you may be
    able to use root. Otherwise, just leave it blank. The dialog is just a
    standard one that pops up.

    Thanks. You are correct. I called Linksys. They said there is no way to
    change this.

    Thanks so much

    idea how to change its settings or enable WEP so after a while i got
    bored and did a lil google search i learned how to log into my router
    but the defult password did not work so i typed in my
    name (rayn) and then my school ID which was my PC login pass and it
    NOTE i had never loged in to my router settings before and the also
    note taht the login name for my PC was ryan and my password was my
    school ID?
