In my enthusiasm to get back into the 1900ACv2, I flashed the newest beta yesterday, and then decided to change my fairly secure password and probably my username as well, and then forgot to log it where I could retrieve it later.....like today.

What I can do is successfully log in via PuTTY (SSH) because the username is root obviously, and the password I already knew.... What I do not know is whether or not the router gui password is the same as the root level (ssh) password? If the password is the same, then it is the login/username that I have changed and can't remember.

My question is, since I am able to ssh in, can I somehow change the webgui pass and login via ssh, so I can get into the router and make some changes, or am I doomed to reset this thing and lose everything?

If there is a way for me to make changes via ssh, can you tell me exactly how? I am smart enough to know how to ssh in, but not smart enough to know how to do anything other than copy paste the partition change commands that I copied from the "how to flash your router" guides.

Thanks.

Turns out the info is in the wiki...

I just had to read through the wiki faq and in fact you CAN reset the password via ssh IF you can get in via SSH by using the following commands

nvram set http_passwd= (hit enter)

nvram commit (hit enter)
