Hi Friend,

I do not think you can decode enable secret passowrd as it is MD5 password.

But if you want you can go for password recovery of your router.

Re: enable secret 5

The enable secret is encrypted using an MD5 one-way hash. Can't really brute force it, but you can compare. Cain and Able has a MD5 tool that will let you type in clear text and run it through an MD5 hash to see if it matches. Thats about the best your going to get unless you just want to do password recovery.
