Deleted my router login details (possibly...)

  1. I logged into my router (that is, by typing 192.168.1.1 into my browser) and changed my password so random people couldn't log in (the username was still admin, however). I then somehow managed to create a new account with the same username (admin) and the default password (admin), but which wasn't actually and admin. So now I can't login to my original admin account (presumably because it thinks I'm trying to log in to the other account, which doesn't have admin privileges), so I can't change anything and it's annoying.

    Sorry if that made no sense, I can clarify it if need be.

    Reset the router to its defaults. The manual should tell you how to do this
