Second Method to perform Western Digital Router Login:
The above method involved using the most commonly used credentials for logging in. But for the second method, you just need to locate the user ID at the rear/bottom of the router. They will be written on your router itself or printed on a sticker. After you find them, open a web browser. And then try the login process again as discussed in the first method.
Still not able to log onto your router? Do not worry! It may so have happened that you had changed the credentials of your router once. But you might not be able to recall it as you forgot it over time. It is troublesome to memorize the credentials of all your accounts, so, naturally, you forgot! To log in, all you need to do is reset your router.
Start by locating a tiny hole at the rear end of the router.
Now, find a thin and sturdy tool like a toothpick, keeping in mind it is not very pointed. Now, insert this tool into the hole.
Hold the button pressed for around thirty seconds. On doing so, you’ll see that the router turns off temporarily, then powers back on by itself, meaning it has been reset.
Once this is done, you can go back to the first method and try logging in again. In addition, you can also change the user ID and the passcode to whatever you want. But this time, make sure you don’t forget them! You can always write them down on a piece of paper or store them as text in your smartphone’s Notes app.
