Restore the Settings
If you backed up the configuration file, you can restore the configuration from this file.
To restore configuration settings that you backed up:
1. Open a web browser from a computer that is connected to the same network as the access point or to
the access point directly through an Ethernet cable or WiFi connection.
2. Enter the IP address that is assigned to the access point.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the access point user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are
case-sensitive.
The Home page displays.
4. Select Administration > Backup Settings.
The Backup Settings page displays.
5. Click the Browse button and navigate to and select the saved configuration file.
The name of the backup file from which you can restore the configuration is NETGEAR_WAC104.cfg.
6. Click the Restore button.
The configuration is uploaded to the access point. When the restoration is complete, the access point
reboots. This process takes about two minutes.
WARNING:
To avoid the risk of corrupting the firmware, do not interrupt the restoration.
For example, do not close the browser, click a link, or load a new page. Do
not turn off the access point. Wait until the access point finishes restarting
and the Power LED remains solid green.
Recover the admin Password
We recommend that you enable password recovery if you change the password for the access point user
name admin. Then you can recover the password if it is forgotten. This recovery process is supported in
Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers, but not in the Safari browser. For information about setting
up password recovery, see Set Up Password Recovery on page 16.
The following procedure works only if you already did set up password recovery.
To recover your password:
1. Open a web browser from a computer that is connected to the same network as the access point or to
the access point directly through an Ethernet cable or WiFi connection.
2. Enter the IP address that is assigned to the access point.
A login window opens.
