Can't enter password for Actiontek Setup Utility

Message 1 of 4

So I'm trying to access the Actiontek setup pages at 192.168.1.1.  I enter "admin" as my username but when i go to enter my password, every time I hit a key, three letters appear making it impossible for me to enter my password.  So I can't get into the utility.  Anyone else having this issue?

 

Tried it on two different computers.

The router does not echo back what you type, but displays asterisks instead. Security feature incase someone is looking over your shoulder. Type password or password1 and ignore what is displayed.

Thanks.  I was using "password".  "password1" worked.
