    router password

    if you lost your password, you'll have to press the reset button on the router. then the account ID is the default which is, username: admin, password: password. =) hope this helps.

    Thanks in advance.
    No he can not see the traffic through the router, the only way he would be able to do this is by placing a hub between you and the router and running wireshark (which I doubt he does) so you should be safe. As for the password there is no way to crack it without resetting it and changing it

    Then just remember your password next time!

    It varies from router to router. You need to download the manual to find out.

    EDIT: I see you fixed it, nm.

    Or you can call your service provider if that router is purchased/rented through them.

    go to http://www.westell.com/pages/support/dropdown.jsp

    You should be able to download the manual from there. It will tell you where the reset button is located.

    What kind of router do you have? If its linksys its 192.168.1.1 and the username is blank and the password is admin. For D-Link its 192.168.0.1 and the username is admin and password is empty. You can go there and reset your router or change your password

    You can't recover your forgotten password. You can only reset the router to its factory default setting by pressing the reset on the back. Instructions for resetting the router & the factory user name / password are located in the manual.
