Have you changed the username and/or password of your CNet router and forgotten what you changed it to?

  1. When your CNet router is powered on, press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.
  2. While still holding the reset button pressed, unplug the power of the router and hold the reset button for another 30 seconds
  3. While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and hold for another 30 seconds.

Your CNet router should now be reset to its brand new factory settings, Check the table to see what those are (Most likely admin/admin).
If the factory reset didn't work, check out the CNet 30 30 30 factory reset guide .

Important: Remember to change the default username and password to increase the security of your router after the factory reset, as the default passwords are available all over the web (like here).
