    Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I got my family a WRT54G the last time I was home for college, and then upgraded the firmware to Alchemy. Then I went back to school and forgot the username and password to get into the router. This shouldn't be such a big deal, because there is a reset button. Except the reset button doesn't work, even if I hold it down for more than 30 seconds. It always remembers the logon which I don't know. Is there a way for me to use a brute force attack to find the password, or some other way for me to manually reset the thing? If I can't figure this out, I will probably just have to replace the router, which would not be very nice. Thanks in advance for any tips.

    Try this method

    Push and hold in the reset button
    After 5 seconds remove power to the unit
    after 5 seconds reapply power to the unit
    after 30 seconds release the reset button

    you are using and username root and pwd admin as the default settings once you have done the reset yes?
