What Firmware is currently loaded?

 

Factory reset the RBR, use a wired PC connected to the RBR and walk thru the setup wizard with a web browser.

Is there an easy way to factory reset it?

Network name?

 

Is that the username thing that also goes with a wifi password?

 

What are you trying to connect with?

Anything else connected to to? Something with a wired connection?

 

Tell us more about what is going on here.

It might also help if you told people what the modem is in front of this router. The model number could be useful. Is it, by any chance, also a router, with a set of LAN ports on the back?
