Require ssh password?

After installed openwrt I accessed the router by ethernet and there is no web interface so I accessed by commoned line and require SSH password . I tried all my guesses and also I tried to leave it blank. it's still refuse. My router model is tl-wr840n v2.
What should I do?

OpenWrt has no password set by default (user:root, password:hit the enter key) and requires you to set one. If config remains from the previously installed firmware interfere, see

For anything 'based on OpenWrt', your guess is as good as ours.


Serial connection have no default password function activated.

From a open wrt website

My router model is tlwr840n v2

from "a" openwrt website, or from "the official" openWrt website? (this is critical)?

Please provide the link to the exact file that you used.
