Re: Volition 4000 Switch

Here is the user guide for this product: 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.

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.

We have lost the password for Linksys srw2008mp switch and would like to reset it to factory defaults we cannot get into it to reset it.


To reset to factory Default settings you need to do the below steps

1. Look for the reset button. The reset button is a tiny black button on the back of the switch.
2. Power Off the switch.
3. Press the reset button (preferably with help of a ball point pen or a small head scew driver) keep the tiny black button pressed and do not release that.
4. Power On the switch and the sys LED will blink slowly and then rapidly. 5. Now release the black button
6. Wait for 5 minutes. The switch will boot up with factory default settings.

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


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.

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:

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".
