Re: Reset Actiontec Router password
The default username for the Verizon FiOS ActionTec MI424WR broadband router is "admin" and the default password is "password". In many cases this might not work for you as the the technicians that install them often change them from the defaults. You may also want to chech and see if the default password of "password1" works for your installation as it is a common setting.
So, what do you do now if the defaults do not work for you? The easiest method to figure out the password would be to reset the ActionTec MI424WR to the default settings in order to restore the default username of "admin" and the default password of "password". In order to do this, locate the reset button on the back of your router
From there, find an object similar to a paper clip and depress the button for at least 10 seconds. I recommend 30 seconds to be safe. From there, wait approximately 30 seconds for the router to reboot and then you will be able to access the router via you internet browser at http://192.168.1.1
with the default username of "admin" and the default password of "password". Warning, of course any of your custom setting will be lost by performing this action!
