Locked Out of Router, Trying to Avoid Reset

Hey guys,

I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this question. I'm just hoping I'm wrong haha.

Here's the situation: I've got a Netgear FVS318v3 VPN Firewall here at work that I'm trying disable the firewall on. The problem is the default admin login password has been changed, and no one here has seems to recall who would have set that password, so I can't get into the config.

I really don't want to reset it, since I'm pretty sure there are settings in there that shouldn't change. Is there any way to save those settings, or at least see what they are without having to login? I'm dreading doing a factory restore. I've already got the info from ipconfig/all copied down.

Any advice would be appreciated. I'm still learning the intricacies of networking. Thanks!

  1. No way to get in the thing without a valid logon. Netgear will probably not help because they have (nor do we) no way of knowing if you are trying to do what you say you are or trying to hack into a business or do something not nice.
  2. I know :( Can't trust anyone these days haha.
