A friend's telecom technicolour Tg582n stopped allowing their wifi password on multiple devices and I couldn't get it to connect to their laptop on Ethernet either so I reset it using the paper clip method. The router seems to have retained the old SSID and wifi password but not the broadband login name and password. The firmware GUI now works fine on Ethernet and on wifi using the old wifi password and unlike before all my wireless gear like iPad and phone will now happily connect to the routers' signal.
Is that usual? For it to retain the original SSID and wifi pass but not the broadband username and pass?
She's ringing Telecom to get them.
