Every time I try to log into the wireless router's control panel, the password box keeps typing two or three characters at a time.  Won't this prevent the router from recognizing the password?



No it will not.  The Actiontec MI424WR router has a built in security feature that displays multiple bullets for each key stroke.  As a result, it "appears" that you are typing an incorrect password.  Simply ignore what you are seeing in the password box, type the correct password, and you should be able to log in properly.


Please note that the default settings for the Actiontec MI424WR wireless router are as follows:


User Name:  admin

Password:    password or password1
