  • 1811w forgot username and pass

    I took a break from IT a few years ago, but I'm back into it now. Picking up where I left off means learning IOS. I bought an 1811w years ago and partially set it up. I connected today and was greeted with "User Access Verification". It's asking for my Username and Password and although I wrote down the passwords, I didn't make note of the username...
    (If memory serves, I enabled AAA to make an account.)

    Can anyone tell me how to reset this router to factory without having access to privileged mode?
    Or link me to a tutorial. Googling the problem only came back with methods for other situations.

    I don't care if I lose the config.

    Figured it out!

    Was getting frustrated so decided to post. But I just needed a little more patience!

      Glad you got it sorted out. If it happens again and you can't remember the password you can always do password recovery.

        Hey auglan, thanks.
        I'll bookmark that site for the next time. I'm sure it will happen again.
