I inherited a TP-LINK router from a friend which supposedly already has openwrt installed on it, including a nice piece of tape on the router with openwrt written in sharpie.
OpenWrt appears in the list of possible networks to connect to,
and I can successfully connect,
but when I visit 192.168.1.1 in the browser it says "unable to connect"
In terminal, when I try
it asks for a password,
I've tried entering 'root', 'admin' and just leaving it empty, all are denied.
I was hoping that a factory reset would bring the router all the way back to factory state, where root has no password.
I did the factory reset by holding down the reset button for 10 seconds, and then releasing it,
the LED blinked and the router restarted.
Interestingly, when I tried sshing again, I received a warning that "REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" which made me think the factory reset did in fact work.
I removed the relevant entry from /Users/maxfowler/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of the error message,
and then tried ssh-ing again,
but then yet again I was met with the password prompt and did not know the password.
Any ideas? any way to a factory reset that will get rid of whatever password was set for root? or another way to login?
