      Forgotten router password!!!

      Hi Guys,

      I received a new D-Link router from Sky last month, entered the default user name and password and configured.
      I changed the password and kept the "admin" user name but I can't remember what password I used. Is there any way I can get into the router or recover the password without a hard reset?

      In a word, No! You will need to reset using the reset hole at the rear.

      As far as I know, there isn't a way to bypass the password, and even if I found one, I'd be telling D-link and Sky, and no-one else.

      If you've backed up the settings since changing your password, then you could recover the password from the backup - I'm pretty sure it is just base64 encoded.

      Both the network key and the admin key are shown in 'clear' in the settings backup. Unfortunately, few bother to backup their settings till it is too late. Every time you make a change to your settings you should make a new backup.
