Firmware upgrade on R6900 Cannot login to router, Windows 10 will not pass through the signon.

Router is working, have been experiencing low connection speeds with my Samsung TV and Ipad less than 1Mbps, yet on my computer Spectrum speed check is about 60+Mbps. Spectrum  Support suggested my router may need a firmware update.  Went to routerlogin.com but cannot get connected to the router. Windows 10 gives me a security screen saying the router wants login and password, I enter them as on the router.  admin and password and it just comes back with a password or id error. I have tried canceling out of the windows password dialog window and then entering the router serial number to "recover" the password but nothing happens, it just sits there searching with the busy icon on the webpage tab spinning for freaking ever.  Any body know what is going on with this?

Hi dlafeve, 

 

If you are unable to access the router's page as it is not accepting the default login and not able to recover the password then the next step to do it to factory reset the router. Here's a reference link of how to do it:

Once you have successfully logged into the router's page then you can go ahead and check router's firmware version. Here's a reference link:
