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

Re: Slingshot Admin password removal/reset and User's...

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.

Re: Slingshot Admin password removal/reset and User's...

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

How to reset admin user password or get it from config file shown in it as hash

I have encountered other stubborn IP devices which resist reset.
Most of them will reset if one uses the 30 30 30 method.
Try it, press the reset button in for the following.
30 seconds with the power on, still pressing it in remove power and count another 30 seconds, now re-power it on still with it press for the last 30 seconds.
I have found that this time can be shortened for some devices but the cycle still is reruired. Good luck...

I forgot ip address and password and want to factory reset

Connect the console cable, open a connection to the serial port via a utility such as PuTTY, and do the following:
1) Enter the user name "recover" and password "recover" to place your unit in password recovery mode. The unit will remain in password recovery mode for 30 seconds max.
2) Perform a hard reset by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, and then re-applying power.
3) Once the switch has rebooted, enter a new password for the "admin" user account.
4) Enter enable to leave password recovery enabled, or enter disable to turn it off. You are now logged in as the default "admin" user.
Note: If password recovery has been disabled, the only way to recover access is to return the switch to 3com.

-Enter "admin" when the system prompts for User
-Press the "Enter" key when the system prompts for "Old Password" (the ADMIN password was reset by the Web Interface commands)
-Enter "" when the system prompts for the New Password (where "" is the new product ADMIN password)

From the web interface, the default user "admin" password is changed and console access is disabled
When applying the new password, by default the service-type is set to "telnet". When applied, the default "terminal" setting is removed thus disabling console access.

Hi, I am not sure what my user name or password is for my router, when i past in my default getaway IP. I have DGS-1005G D-Link pliz help me

User name : admin
Password : admin

username : admin
password : leave it blank

if still not, you can reset the router to its factory settings. You can do that by pressing and holding the small reset button at the back of the router. You will need to use a pin to do that. Usually, the reset button has a red circle drawing on it. Just press and hold it for 10 seconds while the power is on. You will notice that the lights will flicker including the power light. It will turn red. Once done, just wait for the router to boot then access the GUI and use the login that I have provided. You should be good to go.

I want ot know how i can manage my switch i want to connet 4 different network what is the user name and password for it

Most linksys switches and routers use a simple management interface which is accessable through internet explorer.
Open internet explorer and type this address into the address bar;
and yes, the periods are important.
When the access dialog box opens, type in the user as "admin"
type in the password as "admin"
this should get you in.
If the user or passwords have been changed then all you can do is to reset the switch or router back to factory defaults.
do this by using a pen to press and hold the reset switch inside the small hole on the back or base of the router or switch.
You need to hold the switch in for ten seconds.
The unit will reset and you can then access the management interface using the directions I gave you above..

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.
