Forgot password for ZyXEL modem/router

The standard modem that comes with iolbb. Reformatted and i dont know the password that i changed for the router. I can still get online and everything, but cant get into the settings for the modem without the password. Its originally admin, and 1234 i know, but i must of changed it and cant remember. I dont think iol would know anything about it. There a way of resetting the password?
Thanks a lot.

I too am having this problem. I tried the username/password I use to get my BB stats and admin/1234 and other variations of what it might be but to no avail.

There's a reset button at the back of the modem that's meant to reset the config. I pressed it last night and I couldn't access the Internet - I thought I'd messed it up, so I turned off the modem. The net was back this morning though, so I dunno.

If u did the reset sequence for ur specific modem/router properly, then all settings should have returned to factory defaults. This would included the ip address of the router / router login username/password ect...ect...

If the modem ur talking about is the ZyXEL Prestige 623R-T1 ( that i believe is supplied with iol ), follow the reset sequence below !

10. How to use the Reset button?

Step 1:
--------
Make sure the PWR led is on(not blinking)when you begin this procedure.

Press the RESET button for ten seconds (or until the SYS LED starts blinking), then release it. If the SYS LED blinks, the defaults have been restored and Prestige restart.

Otherwise, go to step 2.

Step 2:
-------
Turn the P623R-A1 off.
While pressing the RESET button, turn the Prestige on.
Continue to hold the RESET button.
The PWR LED will begin to blink and flicker very quickly after about 10 seconds.
This indicates that the defaults have been restored and the P623R-A1 is now restarting.


Hope this helps

( This info and more is available on the ZyXel support page for the Prestige 623R @ http://www.zyxel.com/support/support...a1/index_f.php )
