Few days ago I had to rearrange my work network in order to optimize it. The router I had to use was Linksys by Cisco WRT120n. Peace of cake I thought. And just when I arranged all the cables I realised that someone changed its password. It was long after the end of the workday so I though I could hard reset it and save me some time. Of course easier said than done. I read all the forums about it and tried everything. After trying “30/30/30″(holding the reset 30 secs, pull out the power cord, until you still hold the reset for 30 seconds, put the power cord on holdin the reset for another 30 secs). I tried holding the reset for 1 minute, and all kinds of combinations, but without any luck. And just when I gave up I tried the popular “RTFM”. The interesting thing was that even in the manual I hardly understood the steps.
The only thing you have to do to reset WRT120N is plug out all network cables and press the reset button with a paper clip for exactly 5 seconds.
