Hi there,
I have a Fios Quantam Gateway router and I was wondering if anyone out here knew how to reset the admin password.

Thanks,
Jamieson

Reset the router to factory default settings. Typically you hold the recessed reset button for 20 seconds or so, but check the user guide to make sure of the procedure.

Sometimes the ISP has a backdoor to these if you don't want to physically and completely reset it.

I hastily gave a "generic" response. For your situation I think you should go with Rob's advice and first check with your ISP.
