Chilibox CB-160 GUI / Web default username and password?

Hi, does anyone know the default GUI username and password for a Chilibox CB-160? I was given one without any doc or disks. Need this info in order to be able to login and change the setup? Thanks...

    Hi, thanks for the reply. That username - password combo works when connecting directly to the back of the Chilibox. Doesn't work when trying to log in to the box over the network using the address. Seems there is a different username password for that scenario. Unfortunately, the network login appears to be the only way to change the configuration.

    Hello alistaircb,

    Thanks for the reply. Sorry took so long to get back. Had set the box aside for a while. Tried the username / password combo you suggested but still get "invalid userid - password" when trying to login to the box over the network. I went into console mode and selected 'reset web password'. Still won't let me login over the net. Any other things to try?

Hi billmanjd,

I used to work for Chili Systems so I do have the information you're looking for:

username: admin
password: password.99

Hopefully you can get access and do what you need to do. If you need any other help, reply to this post. Also, if you would like the quick-start or configuration guides, I have those too.

    Do you happen to have the reload software that was given on a USB stick with the Chilibox? I just got back from Iraq and I seem to have misplaced mine.

    If you are still around, could you upload the quickstart or config guides on scribd or other document sharing site?

    By the way, do you know of any other appliances that can do transparent web proxying out of the box?

I am sure you might have found the solution by now. I have used Chilibox to try other network appliances. I have removed the cpu battery and booted the system. It worked.

Hope this helps.

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.

How can I connect my router HG655b to my computer? I did everything they say in the User Guide until Step 3, after choose BasicWAN, introduce username and password in the window, but no window opens.

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.

Trying to set new password for tenda wireless router

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 or (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.

How can i recover my wifi password

You must log into the router using the routers internal ip address. Open your default browser (eg: internet explorer or google chrome) and enter 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.

Forgot password...I know username

What username do you know? Is it for the login for the GUI when you type the 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.

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 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."
