How set password

You need to download the manual for this Middle East version of the access point/ wireless extender. Page 4 covers resetting the router so a new password can be put in.
If you press and hold the reset button for more than 4 seconds, the Access Point will reset to the factory defaults (Warning: Your settings will be deleted and replaced with the factory default settings).

Access Problems

you may reset the router to factory settings. but it will lose all prev settings on your router. make sure, if you have any special configuration before you reset the device, so you can re-configure it back.

How to reset?
At the back of  your router, you can see Reset button or tiny pin hole which would be labeled as RESET.  hold that reset for 10secs. you may use paper clip or pen or pencil to hold reset.
