    I assume its looking for the "administrator" credentials set on the device. You must not be using the right credentials.

      "Lot of usernames and passwords" does not mean you are using the right one
      for the default credentials for the device.
      If they have been changed, you may have to reset it to default settings

          Yes, it is a normal username/password dialog.

          YOU need to go to and put in a search string with the make/model of your router and the phrase "default password".
          Once you find it, enter the appropriate credentials and click OK

          If the password has been changed from the default, all I can suggest is to reset the unit to its default settings, which should also reset the password for you.

          NOTE -- I am not repeat NOT going to do a simple search for you -- it is easy enough -- and I strongly advise other members not to do it either. kay5ive, you should have enough internet skills to use a basic search engine.

            I have searched on but i found Router id and password of firmware, but i need the Backup/Restore ID/PWD of my router.

              So it will be a custom password -- ask the previous owner of the router, or reset it to default

                  Do Linksys provide support?

                    If you have factory reset the device the password will be the default password.
