    Will ipconfig return my router user name and password?


    Not home to try it though I am doubtful of this suggestion from Cox chat. I wanted to log into the router but can not recall either user name and or password. It is not admin and password : ) I did not make a recovery disc. If I can avoid resetting to factory default I would like to do that. Any suggestions on how to "make" my computer show me what my router user name and password is? If it matters this is my router:

    Safely Changing Router Password

    HI Sherry,

    You should still be able to manage your router's password even with the prompt for the site not being secure. Though if you are unable to completely access your router's gateway, you can use the router's IP.

    To get the IP, follow the following steps.

    • Press Windows key and X.
    • Select Command Prompt.
    • Type: ipconfig /all.
    • On the information that will show, look for DHCP Server, take note of its IP.

    You can type the IP to your browser to access your router's gateway.

    If you are still having concerns with accessing your router's gateway, best to contact your internet service provider if they are the ones who gave the router, or the router's manufacturer for further assistance.

    Regards.

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".

    Will ipconfig return my router user name and password?

    Windows security asking for user name and Password while tryig to insall a router

    I tried my admin login, (Microsoft user name and PW) and every other user name and password I possibly have and didn't work.

    Before I try your suggestion in credentials, will changing my password there have the affect of ultimately changing my Microsoft account password to what I choose in credentials? Thanks!
