Noway2 (Programmer) 4 Apr 13 08:40 Thats not a lot of information to go on. Are you absolutely sure you have the right user name and password combination? If all else fails, find the user's manual, perform a full factory default reset and then follow the startup instructions which should include a default username and password that you can use to access the router and reset everything. RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 4 Apr 13 08:46 i tried every user name possible ... the one i did , the default , a one that the company sent ... the problem is i cant write the password at all ... the area where the password i wrote should be is blank ... i tried all the key but nothing typed anything ... RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? Silverblade (TechnicalUser) 4 Apr 13 08:58 Year's back I learned the hard way that not all terminal emulators support all special characters like @#$% ect. and locked myself out of the router If you have one of those special characters in your password I suggest to try another terminal emulator. Putty for example I never had any problems with RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 4 Apr 13 09:14 i will try that ... but all the passwords are just letters and numbers RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 4 Apr 13 09:55 same prolem with Putty RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? VinceWhirlwind (TechnicalUser) 1 May 13 00:41 What kind of router is it? I know of one brand that will not allow you to telnet in if it's not happy with the root password you have set. RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? sbcsu (TechnicalUser) 2 May 13 05:21 It might be that you have to use SSH instead? At least with SSH it normally works Putty would do that for you also if you want to give it a try RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 3 May 13 06:14 the router is a vodafone bewan , i dont think i can access it because for some reason vodafone is not allowing that for security reasons ... but that is the stupidest thing ever because anyone in the network can access the router because of that default password is there a way to discover or hack all user name & passwords on router ? RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? VinceWhirlwind (TechnicalUser) 5 May 13 20:04 So it's not your router, is that what you are saying? Of course you shouldn't be accessing it. RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 5 May 13 22:36 It is my router ... i just sent a mail to vodafone tech support and they sent me a mail that they cannot provide access with the telnet password ... the problem is the admin default password is on the internet ... and you can only change password for the end user account which does not differ alot than the admin password but this means that anyone on the network can acces the router and change whatever they want to change and there is no option allows me to change the admin password ... someone suggested that i use telnet ... but i cant access the router and when i asked vodafone they said they cant provide me with the right password that why i wanna someother way or even hack it to change that password because its a work router .. that it RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? edfair (TechnicalUser) 6 May 13 10:18 There appears to be information on the web that will allow access. I found a site with user name and password via google search. No way to test the informantion however. Ed Fair Give the wrong symptoms, get the wrong solutions. RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? VinceWhirlwind (TechnicalUser) 6 May 13 16:22 It's kind of curious that you say that, "anyone on the network can access the router and change whatever they want to change ", and yet you say you can't access the router to change anything. Weird. If it *is* your router, why are you talking to Vodafone about it? Just follow the instructions that came with the router and configure it however you want to - what have Vodafone got to do with that? RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 7 May 13 13:48 ok maybe i didnt explain it well ... there are 2 accounts on the router that can change the setting of the router .. one of them is called end user account .. changes basic configuration ... 2nd one is admin account ... have privilige to change anything the first account .. the end user account's password can be changed the 2nd account .. the admin user account 's password cannot be changed that admin user have a default password ... so if you searched for it online .. youo ll easily find it ... and by then log in to router with the admin account that has a default password that is available online .... so if your in my network and saw your connection setting you ll get the ip of the router ... and log on using the default admin account password i contacted vodafone for firmware update of a solution to this problem but they said they cannot help RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? stubnski (MIS) 7 May 13 16:01 I have no experience with vodafone equipment but can you view your privilege level to make sure you have permission to change the admin password? Also, did Vodafone say that it cannot be changed or they cannot help you change it? They should be able to send you instructions on how to change the password if it is under contract or post the question on the Vodafone forums. If you hit a brick wall on the password you can always apply an ACL only allowing a certain vlan or IP address access to the management interface. RE: Cannt write password in Telnet ? USER380 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 8 May 13 09:41 Thanks stubnski ... does not solve the problem completely .. looks like a good idea ..
