      Question Locked out of Sagem router.. but how?

      So long story short i've been locked out of the Sagem F@ST 2504 router by another user on my network. When going to login to the router i cant user the password i set as it has been changed.

      Anyway what i really want to know is how is this possible? I know for a fact that i am the only one that knew the password, its quite complicated for one which is why im ruling out that it can be guessed or anything of the sort.

      I'm also ruling out that the router was reset as i had MAC address filtering enabled and that is still working, the network name and protection have remained in place. Not only that but it seems like all services and firewall rules i had set up are still in place. The only change seems to be that all the sites i had blocked are now unblocked. If it was reset i highly doubt that anyone using the network would be able to set this up all again as frankly they know nothing about computers.

      Frankly i'm just curious more than anything, its hardly a big deal, it just seems really weird. If there was a way to get the password i'm sure i would have known it but im stumped. Just to say again im pretty much 100% sure that the router was not reset and the password was not guessed as i'm the only one that knows it.

      Anyway thanks in advance if anyone has any sort of information that would help me understand all of this..

      It's possible that something went wrong with the routers saved settings and it lost the password/some other settings. I've seen it happen before with another router and in that case nobody touched it either!
      Other than that though the ONLY way for the password to be changed is if you either:
      1. Reset the router to its default
      or
      2. Know the current password
