With my computer I connect to a wireless router for internet access. I know the WEP code so I can connect to the network with no problem. However, my router has an internet control panel which is protected by a User Name and Password, neither of which I know. This is the control panel you arrive at by placing your default gateway into the address bar of a browser. Then a window comes up reading "Authentication Required" and you must input a User Name and a Password. I would like to access this panel without doing a factory reset on the router. Does anyone know of any way I could crack the password? I have programs that can crack passwords if they know a hash, but I don't know how to acquire a hash for this type of password. I'm am completely new at cracking passwords, and I am in desperate need of help. Thanks in advance.
