RouterPassView is a free Windows utility program that taps into a router’s configuration file, allowing you to recover important data like router login information, wireless network keys, and more in the event any of that important information goes missing. This sounds like a great tool for hackers, but anyone who downloads this free software for unethical reasons will surely be disappointed.
Even regular users might find RouterPassView to be only marginally useful. The program works by scanning a router’s configuration files created during a backup procedure.
To use RouterPassView, you must have a router that supports configuration backup (most of the modern routers do), the router administrator must have actually made a backup file and have access to it, and the program must support scanning that particular file format.
So once you load the configuration file into the program, it displays your (supported) router’s passwords, wireless keys, and login information. It can also decrypt ISP usernames and passwords.
RouterPassView program supports a limited number of routers with the promise to add additional routers in the future. It includes some popular router brands
- Linksys WRT54GL, and possibly similar models.
- Edimax BR6204WG, and possibly similar models.
- Siemens ADSL SL2-141, and possibly similar models.
- Dynalink RTA1025W, and possibly similar models.
- NETGEAR WGT624, and possibly similar models.
- ASUS WL-520g, and possibly similar models.
- COMTREND 536+ (Only Internet Login)
- US Robotics 9108 ADSL (internet login and admin login)
- D-Link DSL-2540U/BRU/D ADSL2+
Support for additional routers is planned for the future.
