Question about NetGear GSM712 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Network Switch - GSM712 (GSM712NAR)
Several GSM712 Netgear Switchs where donated to our school. However we do not have the passwords to manage them. How can I restore to factory defaults or recover the password?
Netgear GSM switches have an RS232 serial console port. Connect to that using Hyperterm, PuTTY, Xterm etc. at 9600-8-N-1, and power up the switch. Early in the boot process, it will give you a choice of normal operation, or the boot menu. Select the boot menu before the time runs out (usually a couple seconds), and one of the options will be to reset the switch configuration, including the password.
As far as I know, there is no way to recover the password and leave the configuration intact.

As far as I know, you'll need Netgear's help to recover the passwords and they'll only help if you have a Premium support contract.
Try "1234" as this is the default if password protection is enabled.
