Gears Nightawk AC1900, model#C7100V gateway?
 
Hi guys;i have Netgears Nightawk AC1900, model#C7100V, lately i can't get in Gateway as i normally do by signing in with Admin and a password ,but it takes me to a security where i have to put Serial# and 2 phrases that i have in my notes and always use ,but this time it tells me; information you entered does not match what is saved on the router. Please enter it again,.
Already rebooted and same,do i have to Factory default it?,that would be to much hassle and for now i', not need to get to gate way, i normally use the gateway to reset router but i can do it by unplugging power,any suggestions,thanks great folks .

Yes factory reset, update to the latest firmware, reconfigure and save the configuration file this time.

Thanks mate,doesn't Net-gear supposed to auto update their routers ? i'm so afraid to do a factory reset and encounter same issues i had before when i first acquired this router as you may remember in this thread ;https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showth...hlight=netgear, maybe it was me not doing things right on the setup of Comcast Xfinity?

Couldn't tell you if it auto updates, but they provide the latest firmware on their webpage.

Thanks mate ,i was able to get in after re-setting router on the back with a clip
and did new password log and security phrases ,but i know why cause this log in issue, i completely forgot that the PC i was trying to log in in the gateway was connected to another router that i have for extend more connections and use for wireless old Linux PC that do not work with this new Net-gear router, i did use another PC that i have connected strait to the router and then i got in, abut the updates normally the older routes have a bottom that say upgrade,this one only has the software version and nothing to upgrade; thanks

What version is it on ? Most of the Netgear routers had patches released last year due to a couple of serious vulnerabilities.
