The Linksys WRT54G wireless broadband router from Cisco Systems ships with a default password of:
  • admin
Use this password when first logging into the Linksys WRT54G for initial network setup. Changing the WRT54G default password is highly recommended to improve home network security. Until it is changed, use of this same default password is required for any changes to the router's settings. If the WRT54G is reset back to factory settings, this same password will also be restored.

The password of a router like the WRT54G is not synchronized with the passwords of Windows PCs or other devices on the network.
