How to reset the password of router

What is IP Address ?

For the convenience of the first time users to configure their home networking devices like broadband routers and to provide a standard computing environment, most of the network hardware manufacturers like LinkSys, Netgear, Westell etc. use a default IP address for accessing their devices.
All you need to do is to type in the address bar of your browser and just press enter. You will be able to configure all the settings of the Broadband router, with ease in your browser window.

IP is a private IPv4 address and any computer, modem, router or any other internet devices can be configured using this IP address. The limitation of this scheme is that this IP cannot be used on Internet and thus these devices cannot be configured through Internet. But the advantage of using a standard IP address is far more than the disadvantage.

How to Reset / Crack Password

In case you have forgotten or lost your router password, then you can try different combination of username passwords. In case, you are like most of other users, who do not bother to change the default login settings of the devices, then your choices can be …
  1. username: <admin< / password: <admin>
  2. username: <>/<admin>
  3. username: <admin>/<password>
In most cases, you will be able to retrieve the access. In case you are not able to do that, and you are not able to remember the lost password of, then the only option left is to use the hardware reset button on the router. Just remember to press the reset button for at least 30 seconds, otherwise the router may not be able to reset itself to the factory settings.
Once the router settings are reset, just use try to use the different username password combination we have described above.
