Linksys 54g password

  sicon67 13:54 16 Aug 2005

A friend of mine has bought a Linksys cable modem router. He has tried to enter the user name
and password 'admin' which it tells him to do in the instructions but it doesn't take it and goes back to the logon box. He has tried upper and lower case and reset the router to factory settings via the small pin hole in the router.

I have the DSL version which I had no problem configuring using the 'admin' logon.

Any ideas?

After resetting to factory default the password should be admin in lower case and there is no user name.

He has now got past the admin logon but now doesn't know the user name and password for his ntl.
Told him his paper work should have it on, think ntl call the password PID, but he doesn't know his user id.
Is that a default email address like BT?
He is going to ring NTL in a couple of days, but you know what there customer services are like.
Does anyone know if he should alter the router config or should it be set up to run on ntl without altering anything...?
Thanks in advance
