Admin password


I ran across a problem with my router and need the admin password. Unfortunately it doesn't have a reset button so I need to get the password. I tried using hydra but don't know how to compile it. I even tried Medusa same problem.

I use Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty)

Hi,

What make and model of router are you talking about?

Kind regards,

Eric

I don't have the slightest idea it was provided by my ISP and it uses microwave radio signal to contact their server.

It a flat panel antenna with built in hardware that provides Internet and and run to my actual router. and like my router it has its own IP and security (admin) (password)


I am looking for options my first is to hack it and reset the DNS settings to the proper settings.

Thank you.

Doesn't it show not even one sticker with a model number or manufacturer and/or type? And if it's provided by your ISP did you configure it at first or did some ISP technician do it?

In some countries, like in Spain where I reside now, the ISP gives you the router, you go home and connect it and that's it. You don't have access to its configuration (or you'll have to illegally hack it).

In Belgium where I was born, the ISP gives you the router also but with full setup possibility, manual and credentials.

So maybe the router you have gotten from your ISP may be 'inaccessible' to you.

Kind regards,

Eric

Maybe if you can define the problem you are encountering, someone can offer a 'bypass' without the need of access. Since you haven't stated the real problem it's difficult to answer.

Kind regards,

Eric

So if it is this proprietary thing provided by your ISP, wouldn't it make more sense to ask them? Surely they must have had that kind of question before?

I agree. "Offer 'bypass' without need for autorization" doesn't sound like a LQ question.

Why do I feel like I am talking to Microsoft when I hear from you. No offense meant but I am frustrated and your not really helping.
I gave all the info I have and its a flat bed panel 4"x8"x1 inches with the larger part facing my ISPs antenna 1/2 mile away) on my roof conecting through a power source to my router. To access it I have to put in a in like the one on most routers 192.168.1.1 or something else but when I access it it asks for a name and pass word like a router.

So they are small and the tech support are on vacation of three or so people and the only people there are account management that doesn't know how the hardware works. And she doesn't know the password.




Is it possible to use a brute force program to find the password out. I don't want to reset it any way just change the DNS. and no the router's settings are not going to override it.

Other than that I can only show you a picture.
