    My apologies as I'm a newbie.

    I've installed Tomato v1.25 on my Buffalo WHR-HP-G54. It seem easy to change the password, just login the router and go to: Administration>Admin Access. But for the life of me, I cannot find where I can change the default username "root". I've looked at the FAQ and Wikibook but no cigar. Any info would be most appreciated!

    You can't change the username

    If it's any consolation, you can use "admin" if "root" doesn't suit you.

    Funny as I've always been able to change the username with Netgear, Linksys or other routers. I guess I'll just stick with "root" then :tongue:
