On the back of the router there should be a small circular hole with the word Reset labeled above it.

 

Using a paper clip or something that can fit within the hole, press and hold down the button in the hole for approximately 60 seconds and then release it.

 

The router should now be reset and you should be able to connect to it without a password. If you had set your own network name before, it will be reverted back to the default network name.

 

Let me know if this works.

 

I am required to post this as an answer, but please only click on Accept Answer if this removes the router password. Otherwise, please do not click on Accept Answer and post back here so we can find a better solution.
