|There is no preset password in OpenWrt! You need to set one at your first login per ssh, telnet or the WebUI.|
|Pre-built trunk images do not come with any web interface or GUI. You will only be able to login using the CLI, unless you install one yourself: LuCI Essentials|
|Telnet was removed from trunk by 46809. In a newer trunk build, only ssh is available.|
Please note: (HTTPS access is only available after First Login)
Any freshly installed "vanilla" OpenWrt Image, will start with these defaults:

|OpenWrt will keep booting into this state until you set a password:|

Open your browser and connect to the router at its default address (usually 192.168.1.1). Login using username

Make sure your browser accepts (session) cookies. LuCI login fails if password is set and session cookies cannot be accessed.
Then click on the left in the top bar on Administration, then go to System in the bar underneath. A page to change the password is displayed.
Write your desired password into the field Password and repeat it in the field Confirmation. Finally click on Save & Apply.
Your password is set now.
Open your browser and connect to the Web Interface at its default address (192.168.1.1) the username is admin OR root and the password is password. You can ssh to the router at the default address (192.168.1.1) the username is root the password is password. Unlike OpenWrt the telnet port is not open.
If you encounter problems with login, i.d. you can't login, this may very well be a problem with your firewall settings in Linux or Windows. If you have any firewalls, you may disable them. Also, once you set a password in OpenWrt, telnet will no longer functions (see above).
Try again after a minute or two. On the first bootup OpenWrt will be busy setting up the filesystem and generating SSH keys; the SSH server won't start until after the keys have been generated.
Once you've set a password new telnet connections are immediately terminated. You must SSH at that point.
