NightHawk MR60 Can't reset to factory setting to re-config main unit.

NightHawk MR60 Can't reset to factory setting to re-config main unit.

My NightHawk MR60 became usuable and I performed a factoty reset. Now I can't login to reset the main MR60.

What did I do:

Using a reset pin I powered down then powered up Nighthawk MR60. Then by holding the reset bottom down for 15 sec's the unit rebooted. After reboot I see a blue light illuminating and using my iPhone I connected to "NETGEAR49" SSID and when asked for password I used the provided password from back of MR60 label. I connected to that network then using Netgear Nighthawk App it requested me to log in using "admin" as the username, and I entered provided password from back side of MR60 unit. The App then returns "Login failed please re-enter correct admin password" .... Now I'm not able to log into Nighthawk to re-configure the unit.

 

Can someone provide and guidelines or next steps to resolve this issue?

lower case.
