 +===== '​Manufactory'​ Mode/Telnet =====
 +
 +It is possible to enable telnet access without opening the device. ​ The process involves accessing a hidden settings page and resetting the box into the manufacturer'​s factory default mode.  Please note: this is not the same page as the "​factory default"​ page accessible from the Advanced Set-Up->​Tools menu.
 +
 +The steps are as follows:
 +
 +  - Go to your router'​s configuration in your web browser, e.g. http://​192.168.1.1/​
 +  - Log in using the user name and password
 +  - Optionally, but recommended,​ visit Advanced Set-Up->​Tools->​Configuration and backup your current config
 +  - Now, change the location of the current page in your browser to //​u132xzp32aai.htm//,​ so that the full address is, for example, http://​192.168.1.1/​u132xzp32aai.htm
 +  - Click the button that says "​Manufactory Default"​
 +
 +Once the router finishes doing its thing, you can now telnet in using the user name **root** and the password **password**. ​ A significant drawback is that your router'​s normal functions may be impaired whilst in this mode.  For instance, you may not be able to alter the wireless settings or use your broadband.
