In my feeble attempt to secure my router, I disabled the service login and either
- changed the "admin" login and the password, or
- changed only the password for the "admin" login
Normally, I would hard-reset the router, but this one is special and on loan with various settings for a limited trial (contains SIP settings, tweaked timeouts etc). The tech guy from ISP told me it'll cost a callout to reconfigure the trial router all over again, so I'm stuck with password recovery.
If I browse to the gateway address, it comes up with an auth request, not a webpage, but a "this server requires a username and password" type. I can telnet to the gateway, which ends up with 3 tries at login.
Computers on this network: OSX Lion and Windows (XP/8).
What tools can I use? I looked around and I could be wrong but JTR looked like it attacks a hash file rather than cracking over telnet.
