Router login locked out

Message 1 of 10
(14,537 Views)

Hi,

 

I am trying to access the router page for my Verizon MI424WR router. After few initial failed attempts when i couldnt remember my password, i was able to locate the password and tried logging in. Inspite of the correct password, I get a message 'Login temporarily locked out, try again later'. I gave some time before i retried, but i still get the same message.

 

I tried again after 2 days after closing the browser, but still get this message. How do i unlock my login? I dont want to reset the password as it would go back to factory settings.

 

There is no support for this issue in Verizon Support. Could anyone please advise?

Thanks

ardent_guy.

Simply rebooting the router won't reset any of it's settings.

 

Unplug the a/c power to the router, give it about 5 minutes, and plug it back in.   See if that lets you sign in to the router once it starts back up.

2 days sounds like enough time for it to pass.  Try a new session using IE or incognito mode in chrome.

Thanks for the lightning speed response Hubrisnxs. Will try it, though I use Firefox since IE doesnt work on my laptop. Will let you know how it goes.

 

Thanks.

You might also want to try a router reboot.

 

Good Luck.

Thanks. I want to avoid rebooting since it will erase all my current settings and go back to factory settings. Is there a way to unlock the account so I can try again?
