    Its been a while sinds I last logged into my tomato powered router -vacation and so- and now I completly forgot my password. And i'm not even sure about the user account!

    Is the user account always "admin" ? If so, I can try different possibilities for the password but if I have to guess the user+pass I give up.

    Other question: is root pass (for telnet sessions) the same as for the web login.

    And the final question, if I reset my router, will I have to re-install optware and so on?

    Thank in advance!!

    The root pass is the same as the web login. In fact you can login to the website with root & that password or admin & that password, but ssh/telnet only works with root & that password.
