I tried to access my WRT120N's webpage through the default 192.168.1.1 (LAN connection). Not being able to login (I'm unsure if I ever changed it from the default though), I did a hard reset on the router.
This didn't work at all. I tried different combinations to login but it should be username "[blank]" and password "admin". I don't think the reset worked since the wireless still worked only for devices that were in the MAC address allow list.
I visited the Linksys product page and downloaded the Windows setup tool.
This all seemed to work great, I was able to choose a new password for my router and configure some stuff, but still the password doesn't work!
I printed it to a text file on the desktop to double-check but it's not working. Even though my wireless MAC filter does seem to have been disabled so it did some sort of reset.
The Windows tool that was installed (Network Magic Pro) doesn't allow me to fully configure my router. Any idea how I would get access to the local webpage at 192.168.1.1?
I had read you can try upgrading the firmware (mine is v1.0.01, the newest is v1.0.07) but I need to get into the control panel for that. Also tried it with the tftp.exe tool but it can't access the router because of the password problem.
(Note: the internet and wireless internet work fine, it's just the control panel I can't access)
I contacted the Cisco helpdesk, though we weren't able to reset the router, we did find I can access it with another computer. So now I can access the router's cp with a wireless connection through a laptop but not with my LAN-cable connected PC ... I'm assuming the problem is somewhere on the PC, might try to simply re-install the windows next week if I have time, see if that helps ...
Since I was able to access the router with the laptop I did a reset to factory setttings from the control panel followed by a firmware upgrade but that didn't help either ...
