Most modern routers allow you to backup the configuration of the router into a file, and then restore the configuration from the file when it\'s needed.
The backup file of the router usually contains important data like your ISP user name/password, the login password of the router, and wireless network keys.
If you lost one of these password/keys, but you still have a backup file of your router configuration, RouterPassView might help you to recover your lost password from your router file.
Due to large amount of router models available in the market, it\'s impossible to support all of them.
For now, RouterPassView supports a limited number of router models, and I\'ll gradually add support for more routers in future versions. Also, be aware that even if your router is not in the list, you can still try to open your router backup file with RouterPassView, because some routers are sold with different brand name, but they still use the same software/chipset of other routers.
Here\'s the list:
* Linksys WRT54GL (With original firmware or Tomato firmware), WRT54G (only some of them), WRT160N, and possibly similar models.
* Edimax BR6204WG, and possibly similar models.
* Siemens ADSL SL2-141, and possibly
* Added support for other versions of Edimax router file - currently only in Hex Dump mode.
* When you open a file that RouterPassView can decrypt, but it cannot locate the exact passwords location, it'll automatically switch to Hex Dump mode, so you'll be able to try locating the password in the decrypted Hex Dump.
