Ok so I am trying to get into my configuration page for my Arris router. I type in the IP and it asks me for a password. I have not set a personal password and it says that the default is blank, but that doesn't work...
No problem I thought, I can factory reset and it will change it back to default. The manual confirms this. I hold reset for X seconds and everything is reset to default (ESSID, no encryption, etc.), except for the password it seems. I reset several more times trying different combinations of unplugging, holding reset longer, connected through CAT5 or wireless, and so on.
I have also tried every password I can think of. admin, administrator, password, the PID #, the WPA password, leaving the field blank, and literally typing "blank." It always tells me "login error !!"
When I reboot into Windows it runs me through a mini setup, allowing me to change the ESSID and encryption and all of that. Could Windows be changing the admin password? Is there something simple I am overlooking? Any help would be appreciated.
