How to recover router configuration passward

It can't be done unless you know where it is recorded (written down). That is the purpose of passwords. If they were easily hackable/breakable/recoverable they would serve no purpose. The best you can do is, on most Routers, there is a Reset switch, usually in the back, that will clear the password...but it will also reset all router settings to factory defaults.

Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

Port forwarding not working on cisco 1811 router? Via the SDM, I have configured NAT, and verified that these settings are correct. However, our videophone application (which requires, TCP:1720,15328-15248...

Most of the CISCO 1800 series have some ACL's configured by default.

You may want to run a show run from the CLI to make sure that there isn't one interfering.

Also from the CLI, see if you can debug port forwarding. I can't remember the command off the top of my head but I will look it up and post it for you.

I'm having the same issue with a netgear wgr614 v.5 router. this router has worked just fine for years, and now suddenly the wireless light will not stay on for longer than 10 seconds. none of the usual...

Being that you can get a router anywhere from 20-40$ even wireless n routers are now 40$. You can look at or as a reference. I would just purchase a new router. I have several routers because they seem to be prone to issues. I have even sneezed in the direction of a router and broke it. Time is money and if you spend 2 hours thats probably the price of a router depending on what your time is worth.
Hope this helps.

Router Loses Connectivity or "Locks Up" over time.

supposedly the firmware 1.03 was suppose to fix this. However, I still have the problem and when i try to unplug the power to the router and plug it back in, then it often times just lights up all the lights solid and refuses to work. I have to unplug it again and again to get it to work.

It usually will work for a few weeks at a time then have a really bad day where it locks up every 10min to an hour. Gets really annoying.
