The backup file of the router usually contains important data like your ISP user name/password, the login password of the router, and wireless network keys.

If you lost one of these password/keys, but you still have a backup file of your router configuration, RouterPassView might help you to recover your lost password from your router file.

Supported Routers:

Due to large amount of router models available in the market, it's impossible to support all of them. For now, RouterPassView supports a limited number of router models, and I'll gradually add support for more routers in future versions. Also, be aware that even if your router is not in the list, you can still try to open your router backup file with RouterPassView, because some routers are sold with different brand name, but they still use the same software/chipset of other routers.

If you have router model that is not listed here, and you managed to recover your password with RouterPassView, please report about it to and specify the exact model name.

Using RouterPassView

RouterPassView doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - RouterPassView.exe.

After running RouterPassView, you can open your router configuration file by using 'Open Router Config File' option (Ctrl+O) or by dragging the config file from Explorer into the main window of RouterPassView.

If RouterPassView manage to detect and decrypt your router file, you should get a list of passwords/wireless keys in the main window of RouterPassView. If RouterPassView cannot detect your file, it'll remain empty.

What's New

  • Added new display mode: 'Router File Information' (F6). When you choose this display mode, RouterPassView displays additional information about how the file is encrypted, including File Type, Encrypted Data Start Position, Encryption Algorithm, Encryption Key, Encryption IV, Compression. Be aware that encryption and compression information is displayed only for routers that use standard encryption/compression algorithms.
  • This feature might be useful for people with programming knowledge who want to "play" with encrypting and decrypting the router file.
