    Exclamation Mac os x and linksys wireless router
    My Linksys wireless router works fine but my question is where in the Mac do I find the passwords that came with the router in order to restrict access? I want to change these passwords.

    Default passwords come with the router...Look in your router information pamphlet. You change the passwords after logging into your router.

    This information is not on your Mac...but accessed usually by in your browser.

    The password settings are found in the router. I'm not familiar with the Linksys router configuration page but I imagine that the settings can be found under something akin to "Administration."

    If you haven't changed the default, the user is admin and the password is either admin or blank (not entirely sure though). What model do you have?

    As others have advised the information is in the handbook and it is admin for both user name and password. Simply change to a strongly coded password using the configuration page. Suggest using WPA2 Personal with a thirteen numeric/alphabet password.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
