I forgot my password for my router its an mn- 500 and i set a password then had bad break up and didnt use the router untill now and now i cant rememner what it was but i was told you can reset it back to...


Yes, you can (and you have to ) reset your router to factory default if you forgot your password.

Here is how to do it:
  1. Use a pointed object to press and hold the Reset button on the back of the base station.
  2. When the Power light on the front begins to blink green and orange, release the Reset button. The Power light turns solid orange. When it it turns solid green, the restoration is complete. This process takes about a minute.
Note that your current settings are erased and the base station is restored to the factory default settings!

Now you should be able to connect to the router.
  1. You can access the base station at http://192.168.2.1
  2. The default password is "admin"
Look at this article and check how to upgrade the firmware to the latest version. (I read about lots of problems with old firmware.)

You should have a manual.If you don't, you can get it here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Wireless Bridge


do this to change from routing mode to bridging mode, which allows your MN-500 to act as a wireless access point. Important: If you follow the procedures I've listed below instead of the procedures documented in the MN-500 User Guide, you will not lose the ability to administer the MN-500. This will give you the ability to change the SSID, channel, and encryption key if needed without performing a factory reset of the base station and starting from scratch. 1. While logged into the BSMT, click the Local Area Network link and access the Settings page. 2. Change the IP address from the default (192.168.2.1) to another IP in the same range and set the DHCP server to disabled using the list. Click Apply. In the example shown above, I've changed the IP to 192.168.2.252. Wait for all lights to turn green on the base station. 3. Open the BSMT again using the new IP. Use your Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.2.252 and enter your password if prompted. You will not be able to open the BSMT from the Microsoft Broadband Networking Utility (BNU). 4. Click Security, and then click Network Mode. 5. Click Bridging mode, and then click Apply. 6. Disconnect your computer from the MN-500 but do not disconnect the power from the MN-500 because it may take several minutes for the hardware to restart in access point (bridging) mode.
