Default username for 5461 maxg

I have a 5461 max g router and I'm trying to accessing to change some settings but I've forgotten what my username and password is. Actually, I take that back. I'm 99% sure I know what my password is but I can't seem to remember what my username is. Does this router come with a "default" username or something because I'm pretty sure when I set it up that I used a "default" username. I've tried the basic ones like "root", "admin", "default", and even just leaving it blank!

Thanks for any helps

Hello, The easiest way to correct it to reset router back to default. Reset hole/button on back need to be held in 10-15 seconds. 5 seconds or less and it will reboot router. Once it is reset to default use 192.168.1.1 for address and "admin" for password. Leave usename blank. After in settings these can be changed. Hope this helps.

Linksys password recovery


Computer Hope does not assist users in bypassing this security measure. If this is your router and you've forgotten the username or password we suggest that the router be hard reset and then setup with a new username and password.
Default username and password

Before doing a hard reset on the router you may want to try the default username and password. While this is not the same for all routers, this may allow you access to your router.

Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.

If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com.
Resetting your router

If the default username and password doesn't work it's likely you or someone whose setup your router has enabled a password that has been forgotten. Thankfully most routers will have a small pinhole button on the back or bottom of the router (like that shown in the picture to the right), pressing this button in and holding on this button for 10-15 seconds will hard reset the router. After this has been done setup the router again and enter a username and password that you can write down.
hope this helps

Hi,
Since you reset the router, the username and password were set back to its default values as well. For Netgear, the username and password is: Username = admin Password = password

My default IP ADRESS is192.168.1.1, and am trying to change my router password for wireless connection


If you ever lose your settings or if your settings are changed and the router is not functioning properly, you can come to this area to restore your saved settings from the backup file you created. Click Browse to locate the backup settings file you previously created. When you have located it, click Restore and the settings saved within this file will be applied to the router. If you did not create a backup file, you may need to restore the factory default settings.
device3.gif Factory Settings If you ever want to erase all personal settings of your router, come to this area and click Reload to restore the factory default settings. All the current settings will be lost. If you change the router's configuration and it stops functioning properly you can reload the factory settings to fix it.
device3.gif The other method to restore the factory default settings is to press in and hold the RESET button on the Wireless MAXg Router for between five and ten seconds. You will lose all of your personal settings if you restore the factory default settings. You might need to do this if you are unable to access the Web User Interface or have forgotten your password.

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router


heres the online installation manual http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-ug/index.html
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

Password


If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.
