Undoubtedly, the  router is the most important piece of hardware for your computer. In fact, thanks to it you are able to connect your PC to the “outside world”, to the Internet. The most important part of your router is the famous, but quite unknown file called “config file”. Such a file contains all the settings which are used by your router to work such as: ISP, wifi, network keys, your network configuration and your password. It’s quite common to lose a password. It happens all the time, but what happens when you don’t remember your router password? Simple! You won’t be able to surf the Internet anymore. The free tool I am about to introduce to you lets you recover such a password in a matter of a few seconds!

RouterPassView helps you to recover your lost password from your router file. Here is the list of supported routers:

  • Linksys WRT54GL, and possibly similar models.
  • Edimax BR6204WG, and possibly similar models.
  • Siemens ADSL SL2-141, and possibly similar models.
  • Dynalink RTA1025W, and possibly similar models.
  • NETGEAR WGT624, and possibly similar models.
  • ASUS WL-520g, and possibly similar models.
  • COMTREND 536+ (Only Internet Login)
  • US Robotics 9108 ADSL (internet login and admin login)
  • D-Link DSL-2540U/BRU/D ADSL2+, DSL-2650U, DSL-520B
  • Linksys WRT160N, firmware v1.53.0

RouterPassView is a portable application, so you won’t have to install anything. Simply, click the executable file (.exe), open your router configuration file by using ‘Open Router Config File’ option (Ctrl+O) or by dragging the config file from Explorer into the main window of RouterPassView. The tool will be able to decrypt  your router file , thus showing you all the passwords/wireless keys.

  1. AVP Says:

    While the above app is useful no doubt but aren’t there settings in routers to restore them to factory defaults so that they can be accessed in case the password is forgotten?

    Just my 2 cents.
