Help with Security Code for WG3526 with mc7455

Post by jerrett.watson » Tue Jan 15, 2019 6:49 pm

Need help with connecting to router after flashing firmware update. It is asking for a security key code. Was following the tutorial on this build and hit a roadblock at this point. I'm pretty much lost at this point.

If you are referring to the WiFi password, it depends on which firmware build you are using.

If it is one of the WiFiX versions of GoldenOrb: 12345678

If it is one of the older GoldenOrb 2017 builds: rooter2017

Not sure on the latest beta GoldenOrb 2019 builds but try: rooter2019

As a last resort, connect using a LAN cable from the router to PC (which is always the preferred method to flash firmware) and set the WiFi SSID and password as desired.

No unfortunately none of those suggestions are letting me in. Even with the LAN connection I can't connect.

If I understand you correctly, you flashed the WG3526 with the GO2017 version of GoldenOrb.

Is this the first time the router has run GoldenOrb?

Did you make sure and UNCHECK the Save Settings box when you flashed the router?

It is also helpful to explain the steps you have done that got you to the point you are.

Also, did you try a hard reboot of the router after flashing it (i.e., pull the power, wait a few seconds, and power back on)?

If using an Ethernet cable, you may also need to reboot the PC.

Yes I believe it is the GO2017. I was following the tutorial on the wg3526 with mc7455 build. I did uncheck the save settings box. After about 15 mins I assumed there was a problem with the flashing so I closed out of the browser and tried to open it back up and it ask for a security key code for the router address. It was identifying as rooter on my available networks. Maybe I messed up by closing out the browser.

Also try clearing the browser cache by pressing Ctrl & F5 at the same time.
