Slingshot Admin password removal/reset and User's manual

Hi I have a friend who bought a second hand slingshot 4218, but he cant manage the switch because it is password protected. Is there a jumper inside or a battery i can disconnect to reset the password to fabric results? Finally, there are no manuals from gadzoox on the net anymore, so if somebody knows where to find, please let me know any hint much appreciated, regards Rodrigo

It's not a regular home use switch or router. For pro or business router, switch, and this type fibre Channel switch, there is no certain way to reset or recover the password, the only way is find the facotry service guide, quite un-fortune, this company has been acquired by Broadcom, no support anymore. Usually, admin/password, root/admin, or admin/secure maght be a combination, just give a try.

Most of the switches/hubs have a reset button in front or on back. If there is no reset button, then more then likely you will need a crossover cable, you can probaly get one at compusa or radio shack. With the power off to the Switch, and all cables disconnected, plug one end of the cross over cable into WAN port 1, and plug the other end into LAN port 1. Power on, and wait for the front lights to cycle through. After about 3 minutes, power off, power on, wait 2 minutes, power off, plug in all normal cables and power on. This should take it back to factory default, and you shoudl be able to log into it from the web browser of a PC plugged into it. Most default ip addresses are either or

Is Polaris Slingshot a car, motorcycle or something else?

Hi Randy, the slingshot is the most rad 3 wheeler on the face of this island earth. If I had an extra 25K I would definitely get one, it is manufactured as a motorcycle without air bags and is licenced as such so you must wear a helmet in states that have helmet laws.

try the user as admin and the password as admin..
If my memory serves, there is also a master reset switch..
Look for a small hole in the rear of the case, power the unit off, press and hold a small pin into the hole to hold the switch in and then switch the power back on..
I know ya need three hands to do this...
If no hole is present, check inside the case on the board for the reset switch..

Router locked. Cant remember the password.. User "root"

The only solution for u to login in to the router is to reset the router.

1.If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.

2.To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

3.Wait about 30 seconds to access the router.

4The default IP address is When logging in, type in the default User Name “admin,” and the
default Password “admin” then click on the OK button to access the web-based manager.

Wants to reset 3824 3com switch via console

You forget the password for the "admin" user account and can no longer perform important management operations. solution.gif Use the password recovery method outlined below to define a new password for the "admin" user account:
  1. Access the Command Line Interface from the console port and enter the user name "recover" and password "recover" to place the Switch in password recovery mode. The Switch remains in password recovery mode for a maximum of 30 seconds, before it returns to the CLI login prompt.

    note.gif You must use the console port to recover the passsword. If you attempt the recovery method using the network, the password will be rejected.

  2. Perform a hard reset on the Switch whilst it is in password recovery mode by switching it off, waiting a few seconds, and switching it on again.

    note.gif You cannot use a soft reset operation to reset the password of the "admin" user account. This will end the password recovery procedure and return you to the CLI login prompt.

  3. When the Switch has rebooted following the hard reset enter a new password for the "admin" user account.
