WHR-HP-G300N user/password
« on: October 27, 2010, 09:01:08 pm »

I got this router today and just set it up. Currently wireless works on the other computers, but I can't get into setup. I followed the cd and did every step up to the enter router username and password. I created the router username and password and continued. Now I'm in the setup page in the browser. I click setup at the top bar and enter the username and password I created in the box that says: A username and password are being requested by The site says: "DD-WRT"

but it doesn't do anything, the box just pops back up. I click cancel and this shows up: 

401 Unauthorized

Authorization required. please note that the default username is "root" in all newer releases


Am I entering the wrong user/pass or am I missing something?

try root/admin


Failing this reset the router and setup your own username/password.

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.
