SOURCE: linksys password...

I think you are wrong , some model has blank password, for example:
SPA-3102
There is also some model that use blank username and password 'admin' to start administrator account.

(20 years selling and fixing this stuff)

It is possible default settings are different in different countries, I am in UK.

SOURCE: Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet

Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

SOURCE: i have a t-mobile linksys router. old computers

If you had changed the login configuration password on the Linksys, then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults.
Power up the router, press and hold the pinhole RESET button for 30 secs until the router restarts. The default username = admin and the PW - admin.
You need to change the login password and then configure the wireless settings ie SSID, encryption etc. and then configure the wireless cards in all the computers with these new settings.

Did you install the Cisco connect software on your main computer. If you have installed the Cisco connect softwrae then you will find the Guest network access password . Otherwise you will need to access the router setup page and check the wireless settings.

Want to get my Cisco guest password


Open Cisco Connect then click Guest access. The password is displayed under the Password header.

To go to the Guest access option using Cisco Connect, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Select Guest access at the main screen of Cisco Connect

In the Guests access settings window, you can enable or disable the Allow guest access, change and check the password for the guest network, or change the number of Total guests allowed.

NOTE: The Guest network name is the main network's SSID with -guest as a suffix. If you want to change the guest network's name, you will need to change the main network's SSID.

Forgot guest pw on cisco e2500


If a password was set by user, no one else will know it if you forget it.
If the password needs to be reset to factory, so you can log in with the "default" password AND RE-SETUP EVERYTHING, then you'll need to reset the Linksys E2500 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.
The E2500 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the E2500 from http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/routers/E2500

Want to put lock on guest


Linksys E series routers can broadcast 2 wireless networks. First one is the main wireless network which is secured wireless network.
The second network is a guest network which will always show you unsecured.
It will never show you secured and you can not make it secured.
However it has a web based security.
Anyone can connect to the guest network but will not be able to access Internet without Guest access password.
In other words there is a security.
You can disable guest access also.

I HAVE A LINKSYS wireless-B broadband router 2.4 Ghz 802.11 Model BEFW11S4, and i am on guest account and i do not have a disk for instilation so is there a way to instal it without a disk?


You dont need an admin account or installation disk to install the Linksys router that you have.
Just get an Ethernet Cable plugged in to 1 of the 4 ports at the back of your router and plug it to your computer.
Then Access your router via your computer by opening Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1 to the address bar.

if it would ask you for Username and Password, default should be the one below.

Username:
Password: Admin

As you can see you just need leave the password blank and put admin to the passowrd.

if this password doesnt work just press the reset button at the back of the router for ten seconds and restart the router.

After that try accesing the router again. It should now let you access your routers setup page.

There is a little hole on the back of router, push that button inside for 5 sec with a paper clip. That should reset. You will need to setup a password. I usually make mine my phone number. Thats easy to remember and tell guests.
