In our work office, we have a router but the password for it has been lost. We don't want to do a factory reset except as a last resort. I could try brute forcing the login, but I'm afraid that some router models will send some emergency signal to its OEM or our ISP in case it detects a brute force attempt. Is this a common thing, or should I not be worried and try it?
(I wish to emphasize that the router is our property so we aren't attempting to do anything illegal, at least to my knowledge.)
