Dealing With The Password Problem
One alternative is, you can use the default details. For the times when you can’t remember those, you can take help from the guidebook that comes along with the hardware.
Check the back of the router for details. Keep a pen and a paper pad handy to jot down the necessary information. If things don’t seem to work out, no matter what you do, then the good old reset is the last resort.
There is a tiny dot-like button at the backside of your hardware. Hold pressure on it for a while. To make it accessible and more comfortable, use a thin object to get close. Leave it and wait while it restarts.
After it is back to its usual settings, you can use default credentials. However, factory resetting gets all the previously performed settings undone, uncommitted, and washed away. So decide the timeline of your actions.
