Security Question Fail


Security Question Fail

I type in in my browser and use the following user/password:





After three attempts it brings me to a security page. I answer the questions. I get the following response:


This site says... 

The information you entered does not match what is saved on the router. Please enter it again.


I reset the router by pushing the button on the back of the device in until the lights went off and then came back on as before. I then attempted to login to the router via / and hit the same roadbloack. 


Can anyone help me? The default user/pass according to the manual for my router is "admin" & "password"; after doing a physical hard reboot of the router I would assume it would let me in to the setup page but regardless of how I login via or I am taken to the same security question and none of my responses get me past that splash screen to the routers settings. 


My router's information is: 

R7900 — Nighthawk X6 AC3000 Tri Band WiFi Gigabit Router

Please, anyone with any information that can help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Security Question Fail

What modem, if any, sits in front of this router?

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
