Cisco 1841 Password Recovery

My company installed our two 1841's about a decade ago and we are trying to upgrade them to new systems. The problem is that the tech that did the installation originally is no longer with us and did not leave us all the passwords we need.

I am able to access the SDM and view some of the information there but I need to have telnet access to the device. Viewing the configuration I am able to find out the username that was used and see an encrypted version of the password. It was set up with secret 5 which I have come to understand uses a SALTed MD5 hash.

I need to figure out what this password is so that I can telnet into our device. I can provide any verification information that is needed including the encrypted password (I didn't post it because I understand this is a public forum) if you can help me recover this password.

Thank you.
