How can I recover a lost password?
If you have forgotten the password, there is no recovery for it. You have to reinstall the router.

Assuming you are looking at the board and the PCI slots are the top, see the upper-right mounting hole? See that little split-circular thing just below it? That's the hardware reset jumper.

1. Take a decently large phillips screwdriver and rest it in the center of the split-circular thing.
2. Power on the router, leaving the screw driver in place.
3. Wait for the double-beep, then try to log in (once you hear the double-beep, you can remove the screwdriver jumper)

You won't retain the configuration, but you can now log in using the default IP/username.
