Can't reset the admin password :(

I just bought this switch from an eBay auction - the seller does not know what the admin password is. Without it, I can't change any of the settings on it.

There's no reset switch - I've inspected all faces of the chassis, and I've even taken the whole thing apart, removed the motherboard and inspected every inch of it. Nothing.

I went back and forth with their tech support, and they offered no help. They told me to push a reset button which didn't actually exist on the system anywhere - I looked it over VERY carefully.

I'm out of ideas.

I have a linksys E2500 and I need the password


You could try to connect to your router with a CAT5e network cable. Then open your browser and open the webpage http://192.168.1.1
When prompted for your username and password, try password 'admin' (without quote marks) and leave username empty.

If that doesn't work, reset your router and configure all the options over again (make sure you have all required information for the settings). For more information, look at this knowledge base article: kb.linksys.com/Linksys/GetArticle.aspx?docid=6af0fc7147664d2eaef47a2189a1ffce_E2500_FAQs.xml

Forgot ip address and password


To re-enable the Console access requires the SW2900 series to be reset to its default settings via the WEB INTERFACE
- Web Interface
- Device >Configuration >Initialize To change the Default User "ADMIN" password it is necessary to use the Console connection
-Console Interface
-Once the unit has successfully booted and the prompt presented
-Enter "password" (without "")
-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)
-Enter "" when the system prompts to confirm the New Password In order to complete the configuration it is necessary to save the configuration via the WEB INTERFACE
-Web Interface
-Device > Configuration > Save
Symptom:
SW2900 Baseline Switch - Default console access disabled following password change
From the web interface, the default user "admin" password is changed and console access is disabled
Cause:
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.

Hello sir..im have the switch model 4924 24 port....i want to reset but dont know how to do that....can u help me to settle this prob sir...i want to make this switch like new means the function like new...


Connect some text-based terminal emulator such as Hyperterm, telnet,VT100, etc to the serial port. Configure the emilator
to19200 Baud 8 plus none.

Switch the 4924 on and login using the user "recover" (without quotes) and password "recover" (also without quotes.

The switch will go into recovery mode. It will display a count-down starting at 30 seconds. If you power thye switch off before the count is up, the default password for the main administration account "admin" will be cleared.

After a few seconds, power the switch on and set a new admin password.

After loigging in again, take the option "GettingStarted". Configure the ip settings (best to use a static address) and eventually you will get to the "Initialize" option. Enter yes, and after reboot it will be at factory except for its ip address.

How i can reset the password in a enterasys C3G124-48, if lose it


Before trying anything too drastic, I'd try using the username "admin" without the quotes and leaving the password blank. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to use the reset switch that's located on the back of the switch (number 1 in the pic below). nickmyers46.jpg

The following steps are taken from the manual for the switch.
1. Press-and-hold the reset switch while the switch device is operational. This change of the login password to the default password will be indicated through CLI only.
2. Logon the device management. You can now logon to the switch through the console port and assign a new password using the command line interface (CLI).

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;
192.168.1.1
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.

Network problem


Be sure that you only enter the password admin - in small letters. The user name shuld be left blank (empty space).

This should work UNLESS you (or someonhe else) previously changed the password. Is this a brand new unit? If someone changed the password, you'll have to use the new password.

What Version is the the router? Did you buy it from a store?

Slingshot Admin password removal/reset and User's manual


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 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
