If you have forgotten the administrator password of your xDSL modem router, here are 2 suggestions for you.

Method 1 Login via TP-Link ID

For modem routers bound to a TP-Link ID, you can use your TP-Link ID to log into the modem router.

Method 2 Reset the modem router

If the modem router is not bound to a TP-Link ID, the only way to access the modem router is to reset the router to factory default settings. After resetting, you can login again and set a new administrator password.


If you reset the device, the device will return to factory defaults, you will lose all your settings.

Step 1 With the Router powered on, directly press and hold the reset button with a pin for approximately 6 to 10 seconds, release the reset button and wait for the device to reboot automatically to its factory default settings.

Step 2 Follow the FAQ to log in to the Web Configuration page and create a new administrator password.
