Re: Forgot my password.
Your query was "a way to reset my password";
It would seem that the only way to reset my password is to do a full hard reset of the router. This is done by pressing on the reset button located at the rear of the unit between the power adapter jack and the 1st of the LAN ports. To reset the router to the factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds. This clears the router’s Username, Password, IP Address, Subnet Mask and Operation Mode. Pls bear in mind that when you do a full reset, all other configurations would revert to factory default.

You can reset the device to the default factory settings by holding down the reset button for 7 seconds. The default password is blank.
Now you can log into the router using an Ethernet cable, the default IP is 192.168.2.1.
For that first press RESET button it is in back side of router. Press it for 10 seconds. Then connect t\router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it's configuration with http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then click on wireless then enable wep security then add new password. Configure WAN settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP.Then save settings and restart router. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
There's a hard reset button on the back of the unit. Depress it with a pin for about 15 seconds and release. You may have to power cycle the router (unplug the power for about 15 seconds then plug back in). That reset button will set the router back to factory defaults and from there, you can log in with "admin" (minus the quotes) for the username and the password of "password" (minus the quotes). You'll want to change these under the Administration tab of your router configuration.
