Upon reset, the user account will be "admin" and the password will be one of:

 

password

password1

the router's serial number (upper case)

 

You should change the password immediately upon login as there are several known security exploits associated with routers that use the default passwords.

I believe that now the Actiontec works the same way as the Westell and that following a reset to factory defaults you will be asked to choose a userid and password of your choice at first login.
