CenturyLink router troubleshooting
The login access to the router admin panel can be denied when a wrong user credential or an incorrect IP is used. The correct details can be found over the router’s base or backside printer on a sticker. But if the router misses this, then try to find the correct details.
The final troubleshooting when all the above has failed is to reset the router. Doing this will set the router to its default settings but this may tend to break the communication link. Hence you must keep a record of all the previously set default values.
Resetting can be performed by pressing the reset key present at the router’s base for 30 seconds.
Now you can try login again using the default credentials mentioned above.
Before applying the reset option, a user must find a way to revert the settings to the default with prior knowledge of them as a primary solution. Also, try to seek expert advice for a solid solution for your problem.
