    Hi pkhanh,

    Here are a few suggestions:

    The default username and password for tplink devices is: admin

    If you changed the defaults and forgot what the username and password was you can reset the modem to factory defaults (You will have to reconfigure the modem after doing this)

    Here's how to reset the modem:

    Step 1 Turn off the modem (pull the power out of the unit ).
    Step 2 Press and hold the reset button on the rear panel with a pin, while holding down the reset button turn on the modem (plug the power back into the unit). It is important that you continue to hold down the reset button for approximately 15 seconds.

    Step 3 Release the reset button and wait for the device to reboot.




    Hope this helps :)
