There should be a default login to get started. There is for every router. Use the default login and set it up again. Default for my routers is admin / admin or cisco / admin and then it immediately takes you to the Password change routine and you must change to log in.

Thanks for the update. Let us hope the firmware update did not go bad.

Do a full, complete Hardware Reset of the router and then log in. Every router in good working order responds to this.
