    Hello people,

    Being Christmas and all I'm back at the parents. being as though their supplying food, drink and presents, I figured I'd do my thing and get rid of all the crap they've accumulated on their PC over the year.

    Basically at moment I need to get the standard admin name and password for a non branded router (model AWR51/2 A)

    I've tried all version of admin, user, 12345 etc, and admin:epicrouter which is what I was all I was able to find online. Wondered if anyone out there had any ideas? I'm assuming its a basic non branded router, bought by a network setup type guy popular up t'north

    Cheers for the help and Merry Christmas

    Add "root" and a blank username/password to your list of terms to try.

    Got the manual?

    Tried resetting to factory settings?

    Generally they have the defaults printed on the label with the serial number or model number. You might have to reset to factory defaults before that password will work, but at least you'll be in.

    Curious about what the 'sortion' was.
