How to bypass a router password

Quite often in normal home networks a small router or a home Hub is used, they aren’t really routers and are usually a hybrid of a ADSL modem and a switch, they usually come pre-packaged with a default password if it has not changed then you can normally find the password here.

But if the password has been changed then you have two options, the first being using the reset button if you have one, this will reset all the settings and you should only do this in extreme situations.

Bypassing the routers password , this can be usually accomplished with 3rd party tools, most routers use a CGI (conman gateway interface) script to protect the system , they are commonly seen on adult web sites members areas , this attack can be also used to bypass there passwords.

The attack we will be using is a brute force dictionary attack ,this isn’t hacking in it’s normal sense mearly an attack using a overwhelming number of user names and passwords.

Step one: The Tools

This was the first tool I ever used, it introduced me to this world o so long ago. It’s old but not redundant and it works.

Access Diver

A word list, you will not need a user name list, just make a text file and type a list of common user names  main, administrator, user, and so on.

Proxy list, you don’t need this if you are on the home network but you will need it if you are connected over the internet then you will need some lists.

Step two: Locating The Router

Eyes step open up a command prompt and type ipconfig

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.2

Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

You will see commuting like this the Default Gateway is the routers IP address, told you it was simples.

If you are trying to access web site, then right click the login link and copy the link

If you are connected through the internet see this guide>

Step Three: Prepare the attack

Load the word list

Enter the proxies ( if needed)

Pass the IP address or URL in the Server box at the top.

Step Fore: Fire Everything
