To reset router password without being able to access the configuration via CLI (SSH) or WebUI, please follow the instructions provided in our wiki article here: RUTX11 Device Recovery Options
Please note that this will wipe all settings on the router and will restore the device back to default configuration.
The default reset button configuration looks as below:
So primary suggestion is to hold the reset button a bit longer, beyond 12 seconds.
Thanks for your hint @ZygimantasBliu.
I did as you suggested a number of times, holding the reset button for 12 seconds,
observing the reset light blinking behaviour on the green LEDs at the back of the device.
It worked, but only after I realized that there is a max time in the table as well.
So if you hold the reset button for 30 seconds, in order to ensure that you have held is long enough, then you exceed the maximum.
So after a number of tries, holding for (20 - 12) = 8 / 2 --> 12 + 2 --> 14 seconds worked very nicely.
So all good, it works now, thanks!
Just out of curiosity: my device has Batch Nr 044, so the random password upon reset does not apply, as described on the link:
RUTX11 Device Recovery Options
How does that random password work, i.e. how does the person resetting the device know what password has been selected?
