Does anyone know if there is an alternative default password for the Hub 4?
We had an issue with Internet Access earlier today, so I tried a quick reboot of the Hub 4. Once it came back up the Internet Access is working now, but I tried to login to the Admin Settings (192.168.0.1) and was asked to select a language (like the first-time setup), but cannot login as it is not accepting the Admin password I set (which I have checked is correct in my password manager) or the default Admin password from the Hub's label.
I haven't yet tried a pin-hole reset, but may do tonight once the family are all in bed.
Thanks for the reply, but I definitely set it up and changed the admin password from the default.
I have tried both the password I set (which was saved in my password manager, so I could double check I was entering the correct password), and the password on the bottom of the hub, neither work, and I'm definitely entering the settings password and not the WiFi key (although I did try that once just in case that might work). Think I'll just try a pinhole reset once everyone is in bed and see if that sorts it out.
On the one hand, I'm glad it's not just me with this problem, but sorry you've got it too! I'm afraid I haven't found a solution to it, and I just put up with the semi-regular resets!
I've had this happen many times since. If I do a pinhole reset on the back, and quickly run through the initial setup again, it seems to be ok for a while and then happens a few weeks later.
If I leave it and don't bother with the pinhole reset, I can't login to the config, but the Hub resets itself anyway at some point over the following few days, and the password from the bottom works again.
interesting. I just reset through the pinhole and it's still telling me the password is wrong.
Annoying, I just bought a new router (not cheap!) that is arriving tomorrow, due to all the issues with the hub 4, and now I looks like I'm not gonna be able to get in to switch it to modem only mode. 😞
