    I've had this router for a few months and have never been able to login in using the default user/pass. This was worrying, but I didn't buy the router and the person who was living with me was happy with it since he just wanted to be able to check his E-Mail while using the can.

    So, I never bothered to return it.

    Well a few months later he's gone and I still have the router. Now I'm running a bunch of salvage PC's and I need to access the router to perform some changes.

    Here's what I've tried so far. Resetting it. Once or twice just putting the button. The other times I unplugged it and while holding reset I plugged it back in and continued to hold for 5-10 seconds. I also got a prompt to upload firmware, and attempted to do so only getting a 404 browser error after a few moments.

    Is there any hope for this $55.00 paperweight.

    Note: It does function still.

    Did you try the default password "admin" and leave user blank?
