Factory reset N750 router, says wifi password is wrong?

Factory reset N750 router, says wifi password is wrong?

I can see both wifi networks available (main and guest) but I get a wrong password error when trying to connect to either network? I tried password and also tried the old password I set up, but neither is working.
I factory reset because I changed the schedule for Christmas break but it still disappeared at 11pm like normal.
Any help is appreciated!

2 things to try. 

The wifi password defaults should be on the label of the device. Its not the same as the admin login/password so make sure you're looking at the correct ones. 

 

The other thing is you can hardwire a pc/laptop into it via ethernet and access the router that route to setup the ssid/password.

For more help with your "N750" you might like to track down the manual. N750 is a now somewhat ancient wifi technology – the first N750 dates back to around 2010 – rather than a model number. So you'll have to look at the label on the thing to see what it really is.

 

Visit the support pages:

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

Look for the model number on the label on the device.
