Question about Computers & Internet
Set up password
Here's the "end-all / beat-all" solution to this issue:
Do a FACTORY RESET on the router. Grab a normal pen / pencil / very small "phillips" type screwdriver. On the back of the unit, there will either be a hole where you can press and hold down a reset button.. or some of the newer models will have a normal button sticking out a bit..
The proper procedure:
1.) Whichever the type of reset button.. with the router still on, press and HOLD the reset button.. count to 30 SLOWLY (saying "one one-thousand, two one-thousand").. while STILL HOLDING DOWN THE RESET BUTTON with your free hand, unplug the power cord..
2.) While STILL HOLDING DOWN THE RESET BUTTON, repeat your slow count to 30... once you reach 30, (again with your free hand) plug the power cord back in... KEEP HOLDING DOWN THE RESET BUTTON!!
3.) While still holding down the reset button and with the power cord plugged back in, REPEAT the "slow 30-count" A THIRD TIME.
Once you reach "30", you can now release your "death press" on the reset button. You may see some lights blinking, cycling, etc. Once all the lights appear to be a solid green which should be, the router should be fully reset back to factory settings, thus also resetting the password back to factory settings.
Most manufacturers' username and password are similar to the following:
If those don't work, do a google search on the brand and full model number of your router followed by the words "factory default passowrds". You will find a few websites with common default usernames and passwords for just about every router in existence.
