Are you also using "admin" (no quotes) as the password?

If not, give that a try and see if you don't get in.

Also, make sure you're connecting to the correct IP address. You can verify that in the manual.

I think that default for linksys is admin and admin, name and password both. And it's case sensitive, so NO CAPS.
Reflash it with dd-wrt, if you can, you'll love that.

Having tried dd-wrt and several other 3'd party firmwares I have to disagee with you completely. While ok, dd-wrt is not the best. Tomato is a much better firmware and unlike dd-wrt, you can actually remove/replace Tomato quite easily should you need/want to.

The makers of dd-wrt have made it next to impossible to remove their crap so you're forced to keep using it should you ever make the mistake of installing it on a router.

From my experiences hard resetting the device and then reflashing the stock firmware is pretty straighforward. I suppose others could have had different experiences. I've always wanted to try Tomato but have had such good luck with DD-WRT that I have never bother, yet.
