Factory Default Admin Username/Password
Note: An AAISP-configured router will have a different username and password.
When configured by AAISP, the supervisor password will be the same as the admin password. Logging in as supervisor enables more commands, including the sh command to get a root shell prompt.
"Wifi Disabled" in bridging mode
If you switch this device to bridging / modem mode via the AAISP control panel, you may find that the device continues to broadcast "Wifi Disabled". Connect to 192.168.1.1 (Manual setting to 192.168.1.2 required, as this mode disabled DHCP) and disable wireless via the local admin control panel
The product does contain open source software under the GPL. We have some of the software on the VMG1312: Software page. A copy of the software should be available by contacting ZyXEL:
An independent developer, unconnected with AA, has produced a custom build based on the open-source sourcecode from ZyXEL which offers MTU 1500+8=1508 so full IP 1500 byte packets can be sent and received. Support for multiple telnet instances is also another benefit. AA is not associated with this development, cannot guarantee its quality nor be responsible for any problems or damage resulting from its use. AA does not recommend the use of this code and has not reviewed it. You must understand that use is at your own risk. Source code can be inspected and you should do so and build it yourself. As this is a third-party development, do not ask tech support about this. https://github.com/Olipro/VMG1312-B10A Discussion and details can be found on the forum.kitz.co.uk web site.
