Change XE300 Web Password via SSH

With SSH, is there a way I can change the password required on the router’s login web page? I could reset the router and reset everything, but I’m hoping there is a simpler way.

I found this discussion, but the settings discussed seem to be out of date.

And, it seems that the router doesn’t support the Pico or Nano editors. Is there an editor in the router?


You can use vi editor.

You can also install nano

opkg update
opkg install nano

The discussion is not outdated. It is still valid.

Thanks! I was able to update it over ssh and install nano.
I won’t know until Friday if the new password works. I’ll post whether or not it does.

The password change worked. Thank you very much.
