Forgot the Router Login Password? Reset Password

Most modern routers allow you to backup the configuration of the router into a file, and then restore the configuration from the file when it's needed.

The backup file of the router usually contains important data like your ISP user name/password, the login password of the router, and wireless network keys.

Router backup files can be loaded into the software program which will automatically discover and display the login information if the router is supported.

If RouterPassView manage to detect and decrypt your router file, you should get a list of passwords/wireless keys in the main window of RouterPassView. If RouterPassView cannot detect your file, it’ll remain empty.
