hi, i have an old router that i want to repurpose,model huawei ar1220w.

i don't know the password it was used as a router until a while back, when i changed the internet provider.

i want to reset the configuration to default so that i can login and change the settings. 


web management is disabled as far as i can see.


i tried to login with console, but the default BootRom passwords that i tried are not working (admin,Admin, Admin@huawei, Admin@Huawei,Admin@huawei.com, huawei, administrator, Administrator, Admin123, admin123).


any ideeas how can i reset the bootrom password or upload another configuration/firmware so that i can stil use the router? 


any ideeas wil be apreciated. 

thanks

yes, as you said, console password, telnet password or bootrom password, at least one of them is required to reset the device, if you missed all of them, you may contact the TAC to get further help.

i resolved the problem, eventually i found the person that configured the router last time, he told me some passwords that he usually use, and one of them worked.

if someone else is having the same isssue, as far as i know, if you don't know the console password, the bootrom password was changed from the default one, and you don't know the web/cli user and password or it has been disabled there is no way to reset them. you need to know one of them
