How to login to 3COM 3C17304 Switch?

I recently picked up a 3COM 3C17304 Switch at a local auction. I fired it up and it turned on and seems to be working correctly. However all of the 24 ports are on the same LAN. I believe this switch is capable of multiple VLAN's so I want to set some up. This is were I'm having the problem. I need to use the web interface to do this, but this switch was owned my someone else before me and the default login and passwords dont work. I need to know in plain english how to reset this 3COM switch back to its factory settings. Please be specific with step by step details. I am not a programer so if there is a simple way to do this that would be best. Thanks so much.

and it is complete GUI based login access. Please verify with your IP address once again and as well as console cable also.
