For routers with the reset button and no dipswitches, you must push the button and hold it for five seconds until the test LED turns amber. At that time the router will accept the six numbers from the serial number label as the password or "admin". The router will not need to be rebooted after you have logged on, the LED will change back to green in a few minutes. This will work for telnet, hyperterminal and the configuration manager software also. The six numbers in the serial number are usually preceeded by a letter:
Ex: F221800 (you would drop the "F" and only use 221800)
Once you've gotten in you can change the pass by typing:
sys admin "new password"
