Need to change the password
The default password for the Linksys Wireless N Router is known to everyone. Anyone could enter to the network by using this default password. In order to prevent this and for privacy you need to change the default password for that router. Thus you would be able to prevent any unauthorized access to the router. You could ensure that all data is safe and there should be no loss of data. To improve the security and to avoid the unauthorized access, you must change the default password for the router.
Tips to change default password
Connect PC to Ethernet port in the router. Then load the web browser. Type the address http://192.168.1.1/. When you enter that address, it would ask you to enter the username and the password. For the older Linksys routers, default username would be blank and the password is admin. While in the case of new routers, both username and the password are being set to admin. Now go to management tab. There you can change the password to prevent unauthorized access.
While setting up the new password you should make sure that the password is strong. Strong passwords are created by the random mixing of letters, symbols and the digits. By adding the complexity to the password, others may not be able to access that. This would enhance the security. Try to avoid the using of first name, consecutive numbers, and pet name for creating the password. Such passowrds could be hacked very easily. Keep the password protected and do not reveal it to others.
