  4. On the login page, you are prompted to enter the Router’s username and password.

    If you are accessing the login page for the first time, use the default username (either “root” or “admin”) and password (“admin” or “password”) combinations. 
    If you do not know your administrator credentials, you need to factory reset the router (using a reset button on the device) and try the default username/password combination.
