I am trying to login to my router, but am having password trouble. I used admin for the name and tried password and my serial number and several other things for the password. I noticed that when I type in the password field, several asterisks are put in for every letter I type. Almost like there's an echo turned on, but it is not always the same number of *s. None of my login attempts work, I assume because I can never actually get the right password into the field. I have tried copy and paste from notepad, but that still puts in about 15 *s for an 8 letter password. I did a hard reset. No change. I use Chrome browser, but tried in IE. No change. I am using Windows Vista, SP2. I am doing this wireless also, not via ethernet cable. Any ideas? Thx.
You can ignore the number of characters coming up. Thats just a "security" feature designed to confuse anyone who might watch you as you try and enter a password.
If you did a hardware reset on the MI424WR then the password is probably reset to "password". All lower case. It should then ask you to pick a new id and password for Administrating.
