Pre-Owned Nighthawk Router unable to access routerlogin.net

Hello,

 

I purchased a pre-owned RAX50 Nighthawk AX6 AX5400 6-stream router from Amazon. I am attempting to do port forwarding and I cannot log in to routerlogin.net with the default username/password combo. Support has expired on 11/8, any tips on what I could do to factory reset to default username/password?

The manuals are also a good place to start, visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

and feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Search for "factory reset".

   Here's a radical concept which works for some people:

 

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTFM

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "Factory
Settings".  Further reading might not hurt, either.

   Which "Link"?  Which kind of "not working"?

 

   "not working" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say
what you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

Got it. I figured it had been factory reset when it was returned so I was just immediately thinking it was something else. Thanks.

Re: Pre-Owned Nighthawk Router unable to access routerlogin.net

I was assuming it had previously been factory reset since it was a returned item and the actual network name and password were set to default. While scrolling forums that no-one typically cares about until they genuinely want help, try not being such a wiener next time. Other person that replied just posted a real answer, unlike you who mouth-breathes as you touch yourself to your Wikipedia links.

However, I did figure it out after reading your first comment. So, thanks!

   Thanks for your thoughtful criticism. The next time I find myself in
need of advice from someone who's too helpless to find a user manual on
his own, and posts nonsense like "Link not working. Could you please
help further?", I'll try to remember where I might find some.
