Password issue

I've had this router a long time.  I set it up with a long, complex password.  Now when I try to access the router to set up a guest channel, the router login menu says my password is limited to 15 characters.  How am I supposed to log on to it if the password will not work?  A catch-22.  BTW, the "board" listed is not correct.  I have no idea what this means, but I had to pick one.

Re: Password issue

What router is it?

You could always factory reset the router and start over. Push and hold reset while its powered on. Usually 7-15 seconds but the lights should change when its held long enough.

It's a N150 wireless WNR1000v3.  I listed it below the subject, but it didn't "take" - probably too old.  I was hoping to avoid the "reset" option, but it looks like I might not be able to.

Wowsa!

Thats quite a bit older of a device and was very basic even when it was released 10 years ago. 

Unless you're on some pretty slow dsl, an upgrade might show you some significant gains/performance improvement.
