Router login locked out

Hi,

I am trying to access the router page for my Verizon MI424WR router. After few initial failed attempts when i couldnt remember my password, i was able to locate the password and tried logging in. Inspite of the correct password, I get a message 'Login temporarily locked out, try again later'. I gave some time before i retried, but i still get the same message.

I tried again after 2 days after closing the browser, but still get this message. How do i unlock my login? I dont want to reset the password as it would go back to factory settings.

There is no support for this issue in Verizon Support. Could anyone please advise?

Thanks

Simply rebooting the router won't reset any of it's settings.

Unplug the a/c power to the router, give it about 5 minutes, and plug it back in.   See if that lets you sign in to the router once it starts back up.

2 days sounds like enough time for it to pass.  Try a new session using IE or incognito mode in chrome.

Thanks for the lightning speed response Hubrisnxs. Will try it, though I use Firefox since IE doesnt work on my laptop. Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks.

You might also want to try a router reboot.

Good Luck.

Thanks. I want to avoid rebooting since it will erase all my current settings and go back to factory settings. Is there a way to unlock the account so I can try again?
