Re: Chilibox CB-160 GUI / Web default username and...
I hope alistaircb is still aound, or hopefully someone else can answer this. I have three of these chiliboxs sitting around and I want to put one to work. I want to install an open source firewall software on one. My problem is, there is a BIOS password on them and I need to get it to boot from cd (or even better, a usb stick). So anyone know what chili systems made the bios password on these little suckers? Sure is nice of them to decide to close doors and keep such things a secret.

It is best to login to the router directly rather than through a diologue or app. Find out the routers default ip and log into it directly then you can set it up in it's own on board gui this is the way I always set up any router. Hope this helps.
you need to access the router's GUI page to change the security key of the routers/ remember, once you change the security key, it should be changed in all the devices you got connected wireless. you can access the GUI page by typing either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (most of the routers have this default setting) in address bar of internet explorer. you can find the exact numbers by going to start>run>type "cmd">type "ipconfig">enter you will see the default gateway number which is the one you need to type in a address bar of the internet explorer. (these steps work only if you get the computer connected with the Ethernet cable first to the router) once you access the gui page, you have an option to change the wireless key under wireless section>security. need to mention that when you access the GUI page, you will be welcomed by a username and password log in option. the default username and password again is admin in most cases. if it doesn't work ,check with the manual of the router you got. if you still need more clarifications or steps on this, please reply to the post.
You must log into the router using the routers internal ip address. Open your default browser (eg: internet explorer or google chrome) and enter 192.168.1.1 into the address bar, press enter. You will be prompted to provide a username and password, use admin for both, press enter and the Linksys GUI will pop up. You will need to navigate to the wireless settings tab and either write down your current password or change it. Make certain that you save all current settings before exiting the GUI. I have included an image of the GUI.
What username do you know? Is it for the login for the GUI when you type the 192.168.1.1? There is no way you can retrieve the password you had set if you changed it before. The only way to access your router GUI again is to hard reset the router so that it will go back to default as admin for username and password is admin as well. The problem is all the settings that you saved before like port forwarding, NAT configuration and wireless setting will go back to default and you will need to reconfigure it back again.
is it phone password or router password. do you mean wep or wpa passwork? you can access these security key by accessing your GUI in you router. just open your internet browser and type in in the url 192.168.1.1 for "linksys" router or 192.168.0.1 for other router. then go wireless and wireless security. you can find there if your are using wep or wpa access key. In case that you dont know the password of your router. reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default
password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username
and the default password are set to "admin."
You login to your router GUI , and enable your wireless security there, but by default all routers are locked when logging in to the GUI , username: Admin password : admin (default) - or others depending on the brand.
