The password on the label on the RG is the default password.

The actual setting is here - http://192.168.1.254/ - Network Key

In case someone changed it.

You probably need the gui ID to change it. That (default) is also on the RG label.

Hi @jlmarta 

 

Just checking up on your post. Did the feedback that the ACEs provide help you with this issue? If you want to reset your password back to the default password that's printed on the side of your router, press and hold down the red "reset" button for 15 seconds. 🙂

The password should be located on the side of your gateway.

There is nothing on the side of my router. 

 

there are some labels on the back, but nothing on the side.  It's a Cisco router, if that means anything.

There is no password on a label.  There are a couple labels - one with the model no.  One with a serial no. and a Mac address, along with an 8-digit number like xxxx-xxxx and a symbol like circular arrows in the ying-yang style.  And there's another number beginning with 6002- and nine more alpha-numeric characters and a bar-code.  That's it Nothing else.

Did you try those numbers?
