You can access router password by performing a hard reset. For hard resetting, follow these troubleshooting steps:-

image 1

  • On the back or bottom of your router,  you should find a small pin sized reset button. 
  • While your router is plugged in, press and hold your router's reset button for 30 seconds. You may have to use a paperclip or pin to press your router's reset button.
  • You should notice your router's lights flicker and flash. That is an indication that your hard reset is taking effect.
  • After you've held your router's reset button down for 30 full seconds, allow the router to reboot. (Just leave your router alone for a few minutes and allow it to gather itself.)
  • Finally, try logging in to your router once more. Remember that you must now use the default username and password for your router. If you still are having difficulty logging in to your router, go back to TroubleShooting Step #1 and repeat.

Hi Piyush, it is very easy to reset router password. Press and hold the reset button on the back of your wireless router. Connect a computer to one of your router's Ethernet ports (but not the one that says WAN). In the browser address bar, enter the IP address of your router's administration interface. Enter the default administrator login name (usually "admin") followed by the default administrator password. Click on the "Admin" page from your router's configuration page and create a strong password.
