[HELP] 1811W forgot login info

I took a break from IT a few years ago, but I'm back into it now. Picking up where I left off means learning IOS. I bought an 1811w years ago and partially set it up. I connected today and was greeted with User Access Verification. It's asking for my Username and Password and although I wrote down the passwords, I didn't make note of the username...
(If memory serves, I enabled AAA to make an account.)

Can anyone tell me how to reset this router to factory without having access to privileged mode?
Or link me to a tutorial. Googling the problem only came back with methods for other situations.

EDIT: I should note that, I don't care if I lose the config.

I really don't see how people cannot find THIS on the first try.

Hey Cramer.
I did try that, and even followed a youtube video... No luck.

EDIT: Crap, I had forgotten to reset the register to 2102...

Send a BREAK (ctrl-pause in windows -- consult your terminal program) during power on, right after the memory size is printed. At the rommon> prompt, set the confreg to ignore the startup-config. "reset".

Once it's booted... "enable", "write erase", "reload". Put the configreg back to normal. Go about life.

There is a password-recovery procedure in this forum's FAQ that you can follow, if you hadn't done that.

Thanks for the replies guys.
After my second reply I decided to try the procedure again and realized that I missed a crucial step. I hadn't reset the register to 2102!

...Let's also hope "no service password-recovery" wasn't enabled either.

If it had, it would've required the configuration be erased.
