In the event that you only have a device's firmware bin file, you can still upgrade the device. Here's how:
Hi, sorry to ressurect an old topic, but what if I forgot the admin password. I think someone here changed it and probably moved on to work somewhere else and this particular deice has been sitting in storage for a few years. I tried the TFTP process but it did not work, it asks me for the admin password.
This is document dedicated to ATA upgrade.
Password recovery have little or no relationship to it. Please create new discussion for password recovery issue. By the way, it would be nice to mention the model of the device you are speaking of.
Sorry about that, Dan, and thank you for your reply. I am trying to use a Linksys SPA2102. I managed to recover a Sunrocket-locked device we had, but this one in theory was a BYOD device and it was connected to RingCentral. When I try to upgrade firmware as in step 6, I am asked for the admin user and password. Using the upgrade software I get the same result, asks for user/password. Do I need to recover the password first and then upgrade?
Do I need to recover the password first
Note device can be configured to reject password recovery attempts. It apply not only to restricted units - even standard unit can be configured this way. If configured properly you may be out of luck.
