Well that's not how to set up the router that's for sure.  Connect via wired computer to username blank, password admin.  Now configure the router back to what you had following your ISP instructions.

Connect the computer with the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your router also make sure that the Internet is connected to the router .

Press and hold the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds .

Power cycle the router and modem .

Open the setup page of the router using the IP Address : ( User name= blank , Password= ' admin ' ) .

If your Internet service provider is Cable follow this link .

If your Internet service provider is DSL  follow this link .
