    OKay i just bought this from a garge sale and the password doesn't work. So i went back and asked him and he said that was it. So me in my trustin nature was happy and plus no refunds. To my liking the rest button doesn't work. i have tried it in so many diffrent conbinations. Still none of those worked. So I found some websites on flshing the bios, but that called for a v1.1 and i don't have v1.1, I can't even find what verson i have. Also it was so badly setup i can only get a 168..... ip. So can some one give me a lending hand on my issue?

    maybe you could tftp the firmware via command line in windows. thsi could reset the password?

    you pressed and held it down for 30 seconds with the power to the router on?
    you could try cracking it open and shorting the two solder points of the switch together for 30 seconds incase the switch is busted...
    how much did you pay for it? :)

    hm firmware flash may clear out the PW but i'm not completely sure you could give it a shot via tftp.

    well i payed 15 buck for it so i am not very mad, but i had to stave for the day. That was the only money i had on me. So i think the experenice is what makes me hate him the most. I kind of wish that it worked. That way i didn't starve for nothing. Yes, i tried the hold for 30 seconds, and dose the soldering work? I thought that would make it rest over and over, or until you broke the connection. I will try all of that when i get home. I can't wait more toy's and tools to play with. Yeah!

    don't solder it, just use a screwdriver to bridge the two solder points on the bottom of the board under the switch.
