Verizon Fios ActionTec Router Username and Password Reset

Message 1 of 4
(13,294 Views)

Hello,

 

I have recently tried accessing my Verizon Fios router through the http://192.168.1.1 but I have come out with bad luck. I have done this with ease prior to now, but I have forgotten the username and password that I set up for my router. I wasn't too worried when I realized I could reset the router and type in the username/password: admin/password or admin/password1. But, after resetting my router, it doesn't prompt me to make a new username or password and neither admin/password nor admin/password 1 work!

 

I have been searching online and everyone who has reset their router has been able to log into it using these two sets of usernames and passwords. I am not sure what to do, as my Verizon In-Home-Agent will not run due to some error. Please help me out, I need to get into this router.

I would also like to mention that I attempted to put in the following

 

admin

*router serial number*

 

My router serial number didn't work either. I will contact customer support if this post doesn't get me anywhere.

Try the serial number of the router for the password, it can be found on the label attached to the router. (oh, and you typed "password 1", usually the tech would have set it to "password1", no space)

If you tried factory resetting and it didn't prompt you for a new password, then you should try it and hold in the reset longer.  I usually do a 1 one thousand count, upto 15 but if neccesary do it upto 30 seconds.
