      Can't get into router?

      So i have a medion MD95038 router, got it from aldi ages ago. I want to use it as a switch i have not used it in ages, and i have forgotten the user name and password for it i found the manual says default user/pass is admin admin tried that no luck. So i tried using the soft reset but that won't work :/ i can telnet into the router but it wants the user/pass which i don't no. Is their anyway i can get it to reset or something or get the user/pass out of it???

      Try a hard reset. There ought to be a teeny, tiny hole on the thing somewhere. Insert an opened out paperclip - try and get it to go in direct, not off at an angle, if you see what I mean - and push gently. The router lights should go off, power off while keeping the clip pushed in, power back on, wait for the lights to settle, remove clip and you should be good to go. It sounds fiddly, and it can be, but it restores the thing to factory settings.

      Um, I don't know that router so you may of course be right but power cycling the router while depressing the reset button will trigger the firmware recovery mode on a number of routers.

      I'd suggest just pressing in the reset button for 10+ seconds with the router left on would be worth doing first to see if this just resets it to factory default values. You will of course need to know the default password etc then but that should be in the manual.
