Where do you see this error? What are you trying to login into and what with?

 

There are various passwords involved with routers. For example, there is the one that you use to get into the graphical user interface (GUI) with a browser.

 

Then there is the password you use to connect to its wifi.

 

There may be others, so take is through what you are doing and where it goes wrong.

 

There are several hardware versions of the R6700. Look at the label on the thing to see if there is a V number. If not it is V1.

 

model number

If you visit the support pages:

 

Support | NETGEAR

 

you can feed in the model number and find all the documentation for your hardware.

Just another user.
