Web GUI Reset: Administration -> Factory Defaults -> Restore Factory Defaults (Yes, Apply).

Hardware Reset: While powered on after a full boot, hold the reset button for 10 seconds.

CLI Reset: Telnet to router IP as username root and your password. "nvram erase && reboot" no quotes

With any reset, be patient and wait to allow a full reboot.

When you reset, the dd-wrt GUI comes up and does not ask for you to enter an existing password! It is asking for you to choose a GUI password. The username field will default to "root" to match the ssh username, but you can set it to something else here for the GUI if you like.

And -- this is a guess -- perhaps it will not accept you trying to change the password to "admin" because it is a security risk!

It's asking you to SET the password, to CHOOSE a password. Do NOT try to choose "admin" as your password!

How to check linksys 3200 acm version number firmware ?
Or am I better off starting over with the router instead of taking chances ?

I also want to switch to express vpn since they support wi fi 6. Any suggestion ? Nord support wi fi 6 only on the software app not on the router. But I don't think linksys 3200 acm support wi fi 6
