Nighthawk router remote access

When I try to login to my routers remote access it says my admin password doesn’t work, and that my router is already registered... how do I fix this? I did buy it used off of eBay.

You will need to factory reset the unit by holding the reset button for 10+ seconds then you will be able to log in with admin/password

Re: Nighthawk router remote access

Thank you so much for replying!

I did do this. I set up the admin password. But, when I try to put in my routers serial number it says router is already registered? I’m honestly afraid that someone else could be using the remote access, and accessing my info? Is that even possible? I guess I should have considered this whenever I bought the used router. I guess I’m just kind of ignorant to this high performance technology .
