Default Linksys problems

At work, the admin left and didnt leave the password to the linksys router. I was wondering how to reset the password or how to get into the router to change the password so we know it.

do you have the manual for the router? if not, try calling their customer service department. they may be able to help you out.

kind of unprofessional though, not documenting passwords in a secure, designated location...

Yeah, Ask the admin what the password was. Call him or something, hehe.

I think that there is a small reset button on the router itself. I think if you hold it for 10-15 secs, it will reset. But you will have to completely re-configure everything.

Before you try Guy's suggestion, just call the admin and see what his password was. Something smells a little fishy around here.....
