If you change the password for the user name admin, we recommend that you enable
password recovery. This is the password that you use to log in locally to the access
point/router with the user name admin if the access point/router is not connected to
the Internet. 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
To set up password recovery for the local login admin user name:
1. Open a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the
access point/router network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field.
If you are not connected to the access point/router network but to the same network
as the access point/router, enter the IP address that is assigned to the access
point/router. If you do not know the IP address, see Find the IP address of the access
point/router on page 29.
