    so here's the thing...
    my roommate moved n i want to reset the router but i lost my installation cd...:confused:

    and i didn't even know the username n pass for the router config...
    i tried "admin" in both usrnm n pass but still didn't work...

    so is there other way to reset my router n let me set it up again by myself?
    is it possible for me to borrow another installation CD?

    thx be4

    You dont need the CD, if you did not change the password it is admin/<blank> or <blank>/admin. If neither work you can simply hold down the reset button on the back and for 60 seconds and it should reboot on its own. Or you can unplug it and while holding in the reset button plug it back in and then release the reset button.

    it would be good to know what router you have in the first place. not all devices have the same rest button time length for setting back to factory defaults. some if you hold the rest button for too long go into flash mode.

    Next time, you'll remember to save your configuration. :smile:
