    Hi All,

    Can you help me?

    We have a TL-R600vpn Router that I need to log into and make some changes. I have forgotten the Username and password the router was set up with. Is there a way I can sort this out?

    RTFM. From the printed installation guide of the TL-R600VPN:

    What should I do if I forget the user name and password for the router's web management page?
    You can restore the router to factory defaults. The default management address of the router is http://192.168.0.1. You can manually set a new username and password for login. All current settings will be cleared once the router is restored. If you have a backup of your configurations, you can import it after the factory restore is completed.

    How do I restore the router to its factory default settings?
    With the router powered on, use a pin to press and hold the RESET button (for about 5 seconds) until the System LED lights up and flashes quickly. Then release the button and wait while the router reboots, restoring it to its factory default settings.

    Thank you for that.

    Is there anyway for me to save the configuration settings prior reset? I don't have them documented anywhere.

    No, you would need to log into the web UI to save the config before reset.
