Using windows 10 pro with nordvpn and dd-wrt 43420.
Have a backup bin.

Problem: I forgot my password.

Need help in
(1) restoring my backup bin and password or what to do
(2) need to also upgrade to a newer working version after I have access

Thanks

I can't help you with recovering your password but I can help you to never forget your password ever again.

Install Keepass. https://keepass.info/

Save your database file directly to a dropbox or google drive account. That way you can access your password database from any device you have. If you're not home and you use your cell phone and keepass to make a new account somewhere, it'll be there next time you open the database up on your PC.

Never lose passwords ever again.

Reset the router to defaults and start from scratch. There is no way to recover your password. How did you remember your forum password and not your router password?

I use avast password manager for everything including this forum.

However, it does not work dd-wrt.
Do not know why.
Maybe because it is a direct ip address access ?

I use nord vpn and every few years they change or remove my current server without notice resulting a plenty troubleshooting and going crazy. And when you contact nord, they do not offer much help because they also have no idea.

It's been a while, but if you have an nvram backup the following might save you some time: After resetting the same build version to factory defaults and getting back in as suggested above, you may be able to edit the nvram backup to remove the password and then restore everything but the password from the backup file.
