I just wondered if it was possible to extract/dump a username and password from a router where the information has been mislaid?

 I don't won't to go through resetting and starting from scratch.

What kind of router?
If it is a Cisco, you can boot bypassing the config, then load the config from the console, change whatever you want, then reset to read the config next boot...no reason to reconfigure anything. The exact procedure varies by model.
If it is indeed a Cisco, then just pop over to http://www.cisco.com  and in the search block, type in "password recovery <model>"
