Routers are small devices, which connect multiple networks. Let me explain this in very simple language. A router is like a bridge in between multiple PC so that they can communicate each other. For example, if you have 3 PC and want to connect to each of them together, then you will need a router that will help to connect all PCs. And same concept is applicable when you want to share BSNL internet connection on multiple Pcs
The importance of username and password for a router
As more and more computer systems are falling prey to hackings, it is important to set the security measure for your router. For that the router needs to be hard reset and then be given a new username and password to execute the safety measure for the router.
The role of default username and password in hard reset
Before you do a hard reset, experts suggest you try with default username and password. It may not be same with all the routers but the usual formats in this may allow you to have access to your router.
The usual format is:
Username: admin or administrator (try both)
Password: Password can remain <BLANK> or you can also press ENTER or write “admin” as the password.
Usually the manufacturer of the Router (like iBall) provided the user name and the password on backside of the router.
