I'm attempting to help a friend. He set a password on his router and does not remember what it was. Is there a way to reset the router's username and password as if the router was out-of-box? Thanks in advance.

Mine has a button that resets everything to its default value, including username and password. Maybe you could tell us manufacturer and model number - would be a big help.

Usually there is a hole on the bottom or back that you stick a paperclip in.

very easy to do on any brand(they already posted how to do it above). some older netgears required a telnet and a serial cable

It is in fact a Linksys. Unfortunately, I do not know the model though. I have one very much like it and it is a WRT54GS vers. 6. Although it is not in use at the moment.
