Nighthawk R7960P - Default security questions

Hi all,

 

Currently, I'm still using the default setup of the router. Now, I'm on recovering my login password and facing these 2 security questions:

 

Security Question #1 In what city were you born?

Security Question #2 In what city was your mother born?

 

Please share the default answers for these 2 question.

 

Thanks

Regards

There is a bug in Netgear's implementation of password recovery on some devices. You can get locked into a closed loop.


If password recovery is enabled, but you have not set the answers to the questions, it keeps sending you back to the beginning of the process. If you haven't already given the thing your personal answers, they are not in its memory and it has no way of knowing if they are correct.


If the standard factory password (password) does not work, then you will have to factory reset the thing to get back to that. Then either disable password recovery (check the manual for your device) or provide some answers to those questions.

They don't exist. See above.
