I have router at home that I changed the admin password for fear of being hacked since I live on a big neighborhood. Now I need to access the admin panel on the router to change some settings since my ISP provided me with a bigger bandwidth. I obviously have physical access to the router and can obviously connect wireless or via cable.
Normally a reset would be an option but not in this case since to actually have internet I had to configure the router. I had this written down but I lost the papper and now I don't remember how to reconfigure it since it has been done by a technician. I already asked my ISP to send me someone again but they charge a ridiculous amount for the second time.
I've been searching online and it seems you can get the admin password to a router using hydra or medusa. I downloaded backtrack 5 and have been searching online how to do using it but I never really got how to do it since I'm very new in linux. So I'm here asking for help.
