877W Factory Reset

Unanswered Question

Hi, I got a 877W router and I forgot the password to get into the system so I used the confreg 0x142 to reset the router to factory config.

But now I can't connect to the router through SDM because it lost the default LAN config of

Is there a way to put this back on so I can use SDM to configure it again? I am not familiar with CLI so using SDM will save me a lot of time.

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

You have to, at lease, configure your LAN port with an IP address before using SDM. That shouldn't be too stressful. Also, you'll probably be presented with an autoconfig script when you login to the console for the first time.

Did you use the router's ip as the default gateway on your pc?
