EA-N66R

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought an ASUS range extended for my Windows 7 desktop. It worked great. The AT&T tech who visited yesterday had to change out the gateway router. I reset all electronics in the house and when I got around to the PC, the ASUS software called for a username and password. I typed "admin" into both fields. No dice! I typed "admin" and "password"- still nothing. I now have a $100 device that used to work and now just glows steady blue. "Technical support" for ASUS was not helpful. Has anyone experienced this? All I need to do is to get into the configuration of the ASUS.

you should try nothing in the username and admin or password in the password field.

yes, I have tried all suggestions. Blank fields, admin in password box, password in password box. Perhaps there is another idea? I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the software.

I can't look it up for you since I've got a slow data connection at work but look up the model number in google with default user admin login

Jamey, I have looked up and downloaded updated drivers and software. The issue is with my PC. Somewhere there is blocking and I am resigned to just offering my ASUS to the highest bidder. Thanks for your responses, though.

Ah-HA Problem solved. I disconnected the wireless network and reset the ASUS to factory settings. (Pinhole in bottom- hold with pen tip for 30 seconds.) I then ENABLED the LAN setting in the network and sharing center. Then, I plugged the ASUS into an ethernet port. Typing CMD in RUN brings up the console- old DOS prompt. Typing ipconfig shows the ASUS settings (10.0.0.1). Bring up Internet Explorer and type 10.0.0.1 into the address bar- shazam, ASUS settings. Reset them for new router, turned wireless back on and the range extended did its job!
My thanks to Jamey Scott for his insights and help. Persistence really does pay off!
