Telneting into my wireless router

Hello,

To keep my router on top form and free from noise I am trying to write some kind of batch file that will telnet into my router and reboot it.  I will have this running at 5am every morning with Scheduled Tasks.  My initial problem is that I cannot log into my router (D-Link DSL-G604T) - after I input the user/password it says "Login incorrect".  Out of the box, the password to get into the router's web interface is admin/admin.  But since then I have changed them to something else.  I can log into the web interface no probs, but for telnet I have tried...

admin / admin

admin / password

admin, with a blank password

and also

[the username/password I've set to get into the router via web browser].

None of these work.  Any ideas??

The manual is no help, and D-Link Tech Support, although have confirmed that this feature is possible for the DSL-G604T, cannot help me log in either.

Thanks

Have you tried a "reset" and try to connect directly to telnet?

Hi there, I've had a bit of a chance tonight to fiddle around with my router.  First I backed up my router's settings but exporting to an xml file.  Then I completely reset all the router's settings back to factory defaults and then tried to connect via telnet.  I tried all the combinations that I had done previously but still the same "Login incorrect" message.

Any further ideas?

Thanks

I guess no one has any more suggestions for this, no?
