Hi all,
I'm new here and still a beginner to this internet media.
I recently upgraded to b/band from dial-up.
I connected a dynamode router and secured the connection at
No problem so far.
Next in my wisdom (or lack thereof) I decided that entry to should be 'named' and 'passworded'.

So I wrote the name & password down & entered them into the required fields.
Now I cannot access

Does anybody know how I can check to see:
1. If my new name and password have been accepted?
2. If I can get intouch with anybody to help?
3. How I can get back to using the default name & password?

I need to get back into change from WEP to WAP.

Thanking you in anticipation.

there might be a small reset button on the back or somewere on the router use that to reset it

At the rear of the router is a small hole which is the manual reset. If you insert a pin/extended paper clip, and hold it until the router lights go out, the router will be reset to the factory settings. The password will be set to the default user - admin password -epicrouter.
Have you tried access from IP address ?

I too am struggling, and have expeienced this same problem.
the answer gleaned from this forum was that although you may have set a password, the username always remains Administrator with a capital A
Try that with your password, if it fails, maybe no password has been set.

The most common are admin and admin for both Username and Password - it may be a capital A or upper and lower version.

For my Netgear:

The default router username is always:


The default password is:

Thank you all for the suggestions.
I'll try them and post back with the results

Oh! Should I add that the default password and name were 'guest' for the dynamode router. (It may help somebody else to know that).

See you later

A big thank you for all your help.

I'm now back online after having used the reset on the rear of the router.

Password & name have been reset and all seams well.

(At peace again with the world thanks to you)

I think I have learnt a couple lessons as well....

1.If it aint broke don't fix it.
2.Don't waste time reading through reams of paper, ask the question on a forum like this one.

Any way must go, got to pick she who must be obeyed up from work.

Many thanks again
