Hi, I am having dlink 2730U wifi router and changed the admin userid and password for security reasons. I saved the cfg file , but since the harddisk failed , i could not open the router page. It was a strong coded username and password. Could i access the router page, thro your link so that i could change the username and password without opting the reset, which needs reconfiguration again. If i could, thro your link, i will be happy to use it

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your modem? Look at the sticker under modem.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the modems web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

The modem needs to be reset if you don't remember the log in PW information. Even if you had the saved configuration file as back up, you still would have to gain access to the modems web page to use the saved configuration file.

Factory reset the modem.

No. A factory reset must be performed. D-Link does not acquire or keep in any forum any router PW information generated by users. If users forget the PW or can not access the routers admin web page, a factory reset must be performed.
