PirateBox Password Issue, Help Requested.
April 16, 2013 07:13AM
So.
I got my Piratebox today Yay!
Get to about step 10 and I can't get into my piratebox anymore.
I think I've changed my password and it won't accept it or something.
Since I put the OPENWRT firmware onto it, reset isn't working either.\
Is there another way? Maybe I can open the box and trip a wire to short the router or something?
I'd really like to join the movement. but I'm crippled right now due to this one tiny error.
Please help sad smiley
my computer can ssh/telnet in but it prompts me for a password, is there maybe a program or something to get around this?
Thankyou!

Hello,

assuming you have a TP-Link MR3020, try Failsafe Mode.

Then you can telnet into the router without having to give a password.
If you are already in, issue
passwd
again to re-set a new password.

Thank you so much!
I figured it out why!
192.168.1.1.
I was connecting to 192.168.1.2 but also when I connected to 192.168.1.1 it was refusing my request because of, and to quote my mother who came in and shared some ideas, "Wireless devices trying to connect to the router", which is probably true because that would mean that devices constantly trying to connect would make it refuse connections because it was trying to process them!.
Also, Thank you so much.
I tried for about 8 straight hours to get that problem solved!
I can't express how thankful I am.

Don't ask RPi stuff inside the OpenWrt section
