Did you change it and can't remember or is it simply default?
Default for linksys is "admin"

I don't get why people change their router's password. No one else will be able to change the settings without being connected to it.

Asking stupid questions and rewording what was previously said in the thread should solve his problem in no time.

I've done this before. Tell me what kind of router you have. Usually if you go online and type in your IP you will need a password and username, if you have a Linksys you should leave the username blank and use "admin" as the password.
Fixed horrendous spelling and grammar.

You do realize that others can connect to your router remotely right? There is all the reason in the world to put a password on your router.

It is inherently impossible to fully secure a network from threats, but putting up at least a little resistance prevents those casual threats (like your next door neighbor's kid pretending to be a hacker).

Ideally your router should have a new password, MAC address filtering should be in place, if it's a wireless router you should turn off SSID broadcasting and enable WPA 128-bit encryption.

Username could also be Administrator.

Also sometimes passwords are written under router or router comes with manual where it may be.
For example on my router there is paper stickied under it and there is the password. (Modem access code - PasswordHere)

Let's just say if you ask it nicely and it caves, you have a shitty router.

People can also take your bandwith away.

Seeing as you don't use grammar that efficiently I would assume you're a child who is trying to access your dad's router.

Which brings me to ask, why can't you just ask him for it or to help you with it?

Also, why can't you reset the router? If you forgot the pass, it would be a good thing to do anything to make it so you have control.
