Here is the user guide for this product: http://www.3m.com/CA/english/market/volition/pdf/VOL4000UserGuide.pdf Unfortunately, it says the only way to reset the factory default is to log in via the serial console, login, and change it from the menu. Default username and password for this device is listed as volition/volition or volition and no password. I'm afraid you may have to contact their support team to get this answer. http://www.3m.com/intl/ca/english/market/volition/technicalsupport.jhtml "For Technical Support, please contact: Adrian Cretu 1-800-265-1840 ext. 6267 "

Default password j4868a


The switch ships from the factory with no default username and password. If someone set it and you do not know it then you'll have to reset the switch to it's factory default configuration. There is a reset switch on the back of the unit and when pressed/held in a certain sequence the switch will reset. You'll need to look up the proper procedure in the user's guide of the switch.

How do I recover a password on a Asante IC3524?


my only suggestion is to download the latest firmware for the switch and upload it via TFTP. Once you do that it should reset the whole thing to factory default. a guide on how to use tftp for routers/switches can be found here: http://www.tftp-server.com/tftp-client.html

I can not remember username and password. what to do???


Hi,

If you have not changed the default username and password then you can use admin as username and password.

If you have set your own username and password and forgot then you have to reset the switch to load from default.

To reset the switch
Please press the tiny black button at the back/beneath of the 8 port switch and keep pressing for 2 minutes. The switch sys light will start blinking slowly and then rapidly. then release the button and wait for 2 minutes to switch to boot up with factory default settings.

Please be aware the if u reset the switch you will loose all your configuration and you have to reconfigure the switch.

Best Regards

I have a netgear FS726TP and need to reset the forgotten password


You will need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.

Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings: http://kbserver.netgear.com/media/flash/training/Troubleshooting/NG_WGR614V9Router_TS_LostPassword.html

How to reset the Password n 3510-24T Nortel switch


Hi Try the following - it should go back to factory default settings

There can be times when you need to factory reset a switch. This process can be accomplished through the CLI but if you've lost the switch password you'll need to follow a special process. This process should work for any of the Ethernet Switches (450, 460, 470) and the Ethernet Routing Switches 2500 Series, 4500 Series, 5500 (5510, 5520, 5530) Series. There is a different process to recover lost passwords on the Ethernet Routing Switch 1600 and 8600. Please note that by factory resetting the switch you will loose all configuration settings. It will be as if it just arrived from the "factory".

Follow these steps:

1. Connect to the console port of the switch (9600,8,N,1)

2. Reboot the switch.

3. When the first line of the diagnostics tests is displayed, press CTRL-C. The system then displays a menu.

4. Select option "i" to factory default the switch.

5. Select option "a" to run the agent code.
Upon boot up, the switch will be in a factory default configuration

How to reset the cisco switch to factory default?


When you say you were able to connect to the switch through hyperterm, were you able to login with the enable password? If not, you cannot reset the factory defaults without the enable password. If you do not have this then search on Cisco's site for password recovery for your model switch. If you did login with the enable password, the command to run for CATos is "clear config all". For Cisco IOS, you have the right command with "write erase". When you issue that command, do you get a "Erase of nvram: complete " or an error? Are you issuing the "reload" command after a successful erase? Be sure you answer No when it asks "System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]:" as sometimes this seems misleading and some people think they mean to save the reloaded default. They are really warning you that you are about to loose the old configuration and attempting to prevent you from accidently erasing it. So answer "no". After a successful reload of the IOS you should also clear any VLAN information. To do this, issue "delete flash:vlan.dat" and then do another "reload".
