Hello my name is Randy and I am trying to find out what length of username and password I can use to log into my Mark 3 SOHO router. I am also looking to see if some special characters are not allowed on the router for the password.
Presently, I have placed a 30 character username with small and capital letters along with numbers. My password is 42 characters user small letters, capital letters, numbers, and symbols. I know excessive but that is what I do.
I have the username and password on a thumb drive and just cut and paste in when I am logging into the router. Previously this worked fine in the router with no problems. However, lately every time I try to log into the router (firmware 6.3.3) it says invalid username and password and I have to reset the router password back to admin to get in. To make sure there was no error on my part I cut and pasted the username and password into the router, hit save, then apply, and logged out. I tried logging back in by cutting and pasting the username and password but no dice.
If we are not allowed to use certain characters or lengths of passwords or usernames the router should not be allowing us to save them and not be able to log back in, quite frustrating!!!
If you could please let me know the length of the username allowed and password along with what character types I could use in both I would appreciate it.
