Slingshot Admin password removal/reset and User's manual

Hi I have a friend who bought a second hand slingshot 4218, but he cant manage the switch because it is password protected. Is there a jumper inside or a battery i can disconnect to reset the password to fabric results? Finally, there are no manuals from gadzoox on the net anymore, so if somebody knows where to find, please let me know any hint much appreciated, regards Rodrigo

It's not a regular home use switch or router. For pro or business router, switch, and this type fibre Channel switch, there is no certain way to reset or recover the password, the only way is find the facotry service guide, quite un-fortune, this company has been acquired by Broadcom, no support anymore. Usually, admin/password, root/admin, or admin/secure maght be a combination, just give a try.

Most of the switches/hubs have a reset button in front or on back. If there is no reset button, then more then likely you will need a crossover cable, you can probaly get one at compusa or radio shack. With the power off to the Switch, and all cables disconnected, plug one end of the cross over cable into WAN port 1, and plug the other end into LAN port 1. Power on, and wait for the front lights to cycle through. After about 3 minutes, power off, power on, wait 2 minutes, power off, plug in all normal cables and power on. This should take it back to factory default, and you shoudl be able to log into it from the web browser of a PC plugged into it. Most default ip addresses are either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

BIOS password


Hi,

It can be attempted in several ways.

  • Using a manufacturers backdoor password to access the BIOS
  • Use password cracking software
  • Reset the CMOS using the jumpers or solder beads.
  • Removing the CMOS battery for at least 10 minutes
  • Overloading the keyboard buffer
  • Using a professional service

    Got a second hand imedia 51850, my friend thought she had reset the password, but it has not worked, nor will it work on her old password. She has not made a password reset disk and it will not allow


    Please ask somebody for help to open the case, and locate a CLEAR CMOS jumper or switch. Unplug the power cable, than bypass it on another position for 5 seconds, and you can get back the default factory passwords, or no passwords value.

    My nephhew just bought a gateway w350a t series laptop at auction ,the bios is password protected,does anyone know where the cmos battery is ,i cant find it anywhere. i took off all accessable covers and...


    The CMOS battery is attached to the underside of the motherboard. you will need to carefully disassemble the entire laptop to access it. If there is a bios password there is no way to tell if there is an issue with the HDD. I would start with removing the CMOS and then resetting the Motherboard using the reset jumper. You need to look up the board and find where the reset jumper is, probably through a web forum or the manufacturer website. after resetting and replacing the battery, you may still run into issues...the password may be set through a TPM chip. This chip stores the security settings in flash memory. The jumper may reset this also, but I am not 100% on that.

    I need to bypass admin password


    the battery needs to be out for 30+mins.
    Also, during this time, move the CMOS Jumper to the next location, then back into place before restarting the machine (Depending on your motherboard.)
    Refer to your Motherboard Manual or Find the [email protected] the motherboard manufacturer.
    Inside the manual, there is troubleshooting steps you may take to complete this step.

    I got a bios password after i disabled fingerprint utility.


    Contact the store you bought it from whoever installed it should have supplied you with any password they used. Quiter often there is no password just press enter or use password as the password.

    Bought a laptop and can't get passed the password screen


    Hi,

    If this is a BIOS password, it will be difficult to to bypass without removing the CMOS battery.

    If it is a windows password, you will need to reinstall the OS.

    Jumper settings to bypass password


    Default passsword is Fireport (note: case sensitive)

    To get set password to default unplug power, open case and find jumper next to battery (mounted vertically) on motherboard.
    Put jumper to other position. Plug in power, wait ten or so seconds. Unplug power, put jumper back, and voila.
