Resetting username and password of ASDM

Hi,

I've received my ISP Cisco 857W router. I can access the router through the console cable without asking for username and password. But, when I try to connect to the router through IE, it is asking for username and password which I have not clue.

Is there a way to remove the user and password through CLI, I'll just have to reset later.

thanks,

Hello,

If this is a Telstra supplied 857W, I believe the username and password are both 'advantage'.
I would not recommend configuration vie the webinterface but rather via SSH.

The SSH/Telnet username password combo should be 'advantage' 'advantage' as well.

Thanks. you must have configured this type of router in the past. I'm connected through HTTPS which is using the router's certificate so it should be secured.

No problem :)

Did advantage/advantage do the trick?
Also, I recommend changing this from advantage/advantage to something completely different, as the default configurations allows external access with the advantage login!!

router> en
router# conf t
router(conf)# no username advantage
router(conf)# username <USERNAME> privilege 15 password 0 <PASSWORD>

Obviously substitute <USERNAME> and <PASSWORD> with your own values.
