I have an AR-750S that just arrived yesterday. I ran through the initial setup to set the Admin password. However, when I use the same password for root under advanced settings, the password doesn’t work.
I’ve factory reset the device several times by holding the reset button for at least 10 seconds. Each time it takes me through setup again where I enter the Admin password, but each time the root password doesn’t work. I also downloaded the openwrt-ar750s-3.009.img file from the GL.iNet website to try and reapply the image using the “bricked device” uboot method. Again, the admin password works but the root password does not.
Running firmware version 3.0009. It seems like the reset is not performing a complete reset.
Are there any other suggestions on what I can try? Please advise.
