Hello,
I am in a rental. The owners set up a LinsysE800 for my use. It was unsecured and I was able to connect all of my things on it. Printer, PC, IPone,Ipad, and Ipod. To link my printer I had to bush the little button on the router. This changed everything and now I can't use my IPhone and Ipod. They keep asking for a password. I don't have one nor did I install the router. How do I undo what I did???? I don't want the owners to have a problem once we leave and I want to use all of my things.

There is a reset button on the back of the router. I suggest you try that. You can use a paper clip to depress the recessed button for 30 seconds. That will probably reset the router to unsecured. With the default Admin ID and password. You just need to Google "default ID Linksys" to find what values Linksys uses.

Good luck
