Try pressing the reset button on the back of the RG, after the RG reboots try entering the 10 digit default PW on the sticker again. If it still doesn't work you may have to call Tech Support.

If you re-set the RG as suggested above, will it also re-set the security settings and other earlier changed settings? Although I've not needed to get into the RGs menu recently, the last time I tried and entered the PW, it failed, so I'm trying to understand the system before I need to get back into the Config screen.

Yes, pushing the reset button on the back will reset the RG to factory defaults, which will clear all configuration items.

I don't think there are any other options available to reset just the default PW.

I had to change the security setting from WPA to WEP because I have a wireless internet radio which only recognizes WEP. I don't know of any way to use the radio and retain the WPA settings for my other devices.

oh yes forgot to mention that not even hitting the reset button works at all. i reset it multiple times and still no luck.

Did you hold down the reset button for 15-20 secondd until the U-verse modem rebooted?

Yep, i held it down for over 60 seconds just to see if i could get it to work. Me and my cousin are out of idea's O_o it doesnt make a lick of sense! lol

Could be a refurb that never got properly reassigned? Did you have any luck with TS? They can do a password reset, usually the phone number you registered with.
