ORBIR RBR40

I'm trying to configure Netgear genie app so that I may use some parental controls (i.e. shutting off daughter's wifi at a certain time) and the app is asking for my router admin password, (the username is set to 'admin' and I can't change that) which I think must be the password we've been using to connect to wifi, right?  I created a Netgear account, which has a different password, but neither password will work.  I don't have the option to reset the password, either.  There is no "forgot my password?" link.

Re: ORBIR RBR40

The router administration password is not the same as your WiFI password.

 

The default router administration credentials are username=admin and password=password. If the default doesn't work, then it must have been changed at some point.
