    Unhappy Password requirements to Archer C60 not clear

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I'm trying to change the password.
    I write admin as user, than I try some passwords, but invalid format comes as an answer.
    Which are the password requirerements?

    I have the same question

    Have you already registered a tp-link account? Once you registered, you cannot use admin to log in. Use the email address you registered tp-link as the id.

    No I didn't. And I can login . i'm trying to change the password, but the ones I choose get the message invalid format. So I just need to know the password rules, which I can't find anywhere.

    Well, in fact, a tiny part of it helps:

    What i'm looking for appears to be simple to me:

    - Can I use special Characters?
    - What is the minimum and maximum length of the password?
    - Are spaces allowed?
    - Should I use uppercase characters?
    - Should I use numbers?

    I tend to build strong passwords for my main accounts using a combination of all those factors . Whe I use one of my combinations I get the "inavlid format! but not the rules for a valid one. That's all I'm searching for.

    Since I have no answers, I'm posting my hypothesis:

    It's not possible to use special characters (!,@,#,$,%, and so on) which turns any password into a weak password. It's a shame that a new model has its kind of weakness.
    Older models from TP-Link accept special characters without any trouble.
