Connect to the console with Putty via Serial - Setting the Baud to 115200.
Power cycle the Array and watch the boot sequence very carefully. Press Spacebar access bootloader
Use the default UN/PW: admin/admin
- You should be at an XLB> prompt
-Type 'env reset' and press enter

Look at the back of the device for a tiny recessed button, sometimes red, not always, PUSH and hold until you see the lights go out or change, usually 10 seconds or so. This should reset your device to default settings. You will have to reconfigure your SSID and security settings of course.

    The xirus is not a cheap soho router with a reset button. It's an enterprise device. I'm shocked you're marked down as an expert and give this reply.

    No reset hole or button mate. Have to do it through the console.

SOURCE: asking me for wi-fi password

The wifi password is the same as wireless network key (either WPA or WEP key). That's the same password that you used when you tried to connect to the wireless network using your laptop.

SOURCE: i can not remember my wi-fi password. i need it to

If you have tried the default passwords (blank, admin or sysAdmin) and they don't work, you will need to reset it back to factory settings. You can do this by finding a hole at the back of the unit and pressing the hidden switch there for a few seconds. After that it should be back to its original configuration. You will obviously have lost any changes you made to it since you took it out of the box.

SOURCE: i forgot my password for my router

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
  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.

I forgot my router password so i want to know what can i do to reset it

You will have to reset the router to factory defaults
BEWARE - this means you will lose all the router settings and will have to set them up again including the ADSL settings which your internet provider should be able to help you with. Then when you setup wi fi security all the computers will need the encryption key and sddi broadcast name changed to match

To reset to default settings, turn off the device first. Hold the Reset button and then turn on the device; wait for 5-8 seconds and then release the button. Reset device's configuration to factory default.
(the default username/password is admin/admin)
you will need a direct connection ethernet cable between a computer and the router as the wi fi will be not set up after the reset.

I cannot connect. I keep getting a message "authentication Failed"

Do you connect your PC to router in an administrator role using web browser? Or do you connect some device to Wi-Fi network?

  1. Administrator role: You need to have correct login name and password for admin access. Search in manual or ask Google for default login name and password of your router type. If non-default password is set in the router then you must reset router setting and erase its settings to default (factory) status. You will lose all router configuration but default password is back.
  2. Wi-Fi client role: There are more possibilities why authentication fails in wireless communication. Mentioned error message describes what kind of problem occurred.
    (a) A password you put to client device does not match the wireless network password which is set in router. Your computer, tablet or smartphone WI-Fi interface must have exactly same password as WI-Fi network which is transmitted from router. Check and compare passwords on both sides, in client device and in router.
    (b) Client Wi-Fi interface security (encryption) mode differs from Wi-Fi network encryption used in router. But the same mode must be set on both sides (client and router) for successful connection.
Encryption modes are
  • WPA2 Enterpise
  • WPA2 PSK ("home")
  • WPA Enterprise
  • WEP
  • No encryption (open)
Higher position - better security. Enterprise Wi-Fi modes require security devices like authentication servers, certification authorities etc. They are not used in home networks usually.

If I get a default password must I change my other devises which obviously use another password?

depends. If you are referring to the admin function of the router then the password to it is only needed to change the router settings.
If you change the Wi-Fi encyrption key on WPA or WEP key via the admin function then any computer using Wi Fi would need to match the WPA key or WEP key to access the wi fi.
If the default password does not work the router may be able to be reset to factory settings if you do not know password which requires you to set everything up again in the router and is not easy to set up unless you know the isp settings and network settings.

Im putting in the right password but its telling me ther is an errer

  • If your problem is at the entry page for the router:
If you reset the router it comes to the default settings. This means that it come to the default password too. Clarify me the brand / model to post you back the factory password.
  • If your problem is at the Wi-Fi password:
Log-in at the settings for the router page and locate the Wi-Fi (or Wireless) section. At this section there is a security section. Here you can locate the Wi-Fi password.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
