Hello Everyone,

We just purchased edgewater 2402 PoE LF used switch and connected console cable into it. Unfortunately default username and pass dont work (admin/admin).

Can anyone please let us know how to do password recovery, or factory reset of the switch.

Thank You

That kinda looks like an old SMC firmware...
Try pressing CTRL-F on a console connection when booting up the switch. That should take you to the rescue screen. From there, you can delete the configuration.

You could try user/user for restricted access...
That switch very much looks like a SMC 6726AL2, where the official password reset procedure is "return to manufacturer"...

we were able to just go on the manufacturer website -> support and search for "factory default password"
