I bought a 1841 Router on e-bay.
Apparently, it has been configured with "no service password-recovery". The console shows: PASSWORD RECOVERY FUNCTIONALITY IS DISABLED, and it does not respond to Ctrl-Break during boot. AFAIK, this router does not have a removable NVRAM chip - so this method of reset is excluded. Is my only option to RMA it?
I have the same issue, there are several jumper settings on the motherboard however I cannot find any documentation anywhere if these are of any use. I find it hard to believe that this router is now a doorstop. There must be a method.
