today many of us using the tp-link 's modem and routers at home for internet's connectivity.
so as we for access the router we have to know or need the username and password of router or modem.
so as we konw the default username and password of tp-link 's modem is "admin" "admin".
but some times we change the password for security reasons.
but some time many of us like me forget the password,, now what we do now,,we do only one thing that is reseting the modem. due to reset,, username and password of modem is again set to admin admin.. but the disadvantage of reseting is we lose all the settings of modem,,
so today we learn how to get the password without reseting the modem.
here is simple method of 4-5 steps..
in home basis tp-link modems the password saved into a file,,the file name is "rom file"
there is big vulnerabilty in tp-links modems is that it allows us to direct download the rom file without login to modem.
but the password in this file is encrypt form and it is cracked by reverse engineering...
here is the method.....
step 1:-- open "cmd" and just type "ipconfig" command if you use linux then open terminal and type "ifconfig" and note your "default gateway" address.
step 2:-- now open your default address in browser and it opens your modem interface and it ask for you username and password..
step 3:-- now cancel it and open new tab and place "/rom-0" after your default gateway address
for example in my case "192.168.1.1/rom-0
" and press enter.
step 4:-- this allows you to download the "rom file" of router or modem. Save this in your computer anywhere.
step 5:-- now we have rom file and it contains password of modem,,but this is in encrypt form..
so decrypt it download "Huawei-rom-0" software from this link "www.hakim.ws/huawei/rom-0/
so i have already download this s/w
step 6:-- now click on first button in this s/w and open the rom file ...
as you can see it shows the password to us in 1-2 seconds///
