Router "Thomson TG789VN" won't accept password

I recently got a new router. On the first day I got into the settings and changed some ports to be able to play some games better. For a few days everything was normal, the NAT was OPEN for example. After a few weeks I loaded up a game again, and now the NAT was STRICT. Well, I thought, I'd just change the settings again, but now the router won't let me in. The password on the back of the router itself won't work. I've tried some others aswell, like user: admin and leaving the password blank, user: admin pass: admin etc. Nothing works. I did not change my password last I used it. What could be the problem and fix?

SOURCE: can't chang NAT type from strict to open

Read User Manual to be sure that user/pass and default ip address for your router correct. And check if your computer received valid ip from Router. Usual check: 1. Restart computer. 2. Set IP address to automatic. 3. Start > Run.. > cmd.exe > ipconfig find IPaddress and Gateway. is it 192.168.1.x ? 4. ping -t <gateway>
If there are reponses, you good to go for the router configuration.

Lost my password


  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password.Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panelWrite down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
For FR314, FR318, and FV318
These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348
See Updating Router Firmware That Uses a Manager Port.
This applies to:
  • All NETGEAR devices

My new netbook won't accept my seven letter password on my linksys-G Home router. It's asking for 9 letter password which i don't have. please help


A linksys router password should contain at least 8 different characters. You have to put one or more character to change or put your password as authentication. If you have a further query then let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

The wirless modem / router has been working fine, just recently it will no longer accept my password and I dont know why is this because I didnt buy my router trhough my SP


Hi there. There's a reset button at the back of the router. Press it for 10 seconds and your router will go back to its facroty settings. You will be able to connect to your router without any password. You just need to set a new password upon accessing the router's GUI ot graphical user's interface.

Hope it helps!
