What to do if you forget your username and password?
All of us may have found ourselves in such situations. We update the login credentials according to our will and then forget to write them down somewhere. Hence, while logging in, we often tend to forget the updated username or password. The only solution to this issue is to reset the router.
Resetting the router means bringing the router to its default state. This will update the username and password back to default login credentials. But resetting the router will lead to the loss of all your configuration.
- For resetting the router, follow the steps below:
- First, turn off your router.
- Now, search for the reset button at the back of the router. Press and hold it for 5-10 seconds, even if the router is on. You can use a sharp pin or needle for pressing the button.
