I'm helping my mom with her Mediacom Cisco wifi router setup today, and we've hit a problem. I went to change the wifi network SSID name through the Cisco Router settings (192.168.0.1), expecting to hit "login" with a default blank username and password. This didn't work.
Looking through this forum, I took a Mediacom Admin's advice to do a hard reset by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, then unplug, then power up (all while continually holding the reset button). After the 90 seconds, I thought I'd be back to factory reset and could set up the system as needed. Not so.
Now, there is a default SSID wifi network created, and IT'S LOCKED! It has a name like "d95x88" (edited slightly for security purposes). This is weird and unexpected. I looked around online, but could find no default WPA password for the newly created ghost network. Now, I can't even log into the router using the "settings" page, and we can't even get online.
Any (quick!) help would be appreciated. This is frustrating. Thanks!
