I've already tried that and it didn't work.
The following instructions describe how to reset the username/password on the Netopia 4652-T back to
admin/admin.  Previous Netopia models have used this procedure to reset the configuration back to
factory defaults.
1. Ensure the Netopia router is plugged in and powered on.
2. Turn the router upside down, and locate the slot on the bottom of the router which is approximately
the size of the end of a paper clip, as shown in Figure 31.

3. Insert the end of a standard metal paper clip into the slot until it makes contact with the circuit
board inside the router.  The paper clip completes an electrical circuit, and all lights on the router
will illuminate.
4. Remove the paper clip after the lights illuminate.  You will now be able to log into the router using
the default username/password of admin/admin.
5. If you need to restore the factory default configuration in the router, proceed to the Restoring
Factory Defaults section.

If I follow the steps that you gave me, will this simply restore the DSL modem back to the username and password of admin WITHOUT resetting any of the other important information programmed into the DSL modem?

I simply want to be able to logon to the DSL modem and I don't want to actually reset all of the stored setttings which will take my customer site down as they won't be able to connect to the internet.
This i am not sure of.

The instructions say that it will just reset the user and password.

But in all my experience most routers when you do this reset to factory defaults.
