Networking Extraordinaire :

The default username is admin
The default password XXXXX password

Networking Extraordinaire :

If that does not allow you in, the only option you have is to reset your router, which is done by pressing and holding the reset button on the router for 20 seconds. Then you can login with the default username & password.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Once you reset it, you may have to reconfigure your router to get online. If you are running cable, you will not have to configure anything further.

Please, update me on your status if you have any problems or questions.
