One day, a friendly wolf said:
so all you need is a usb stick with a windows 10 installer, boot to that, click “Repair my pc” after it asks you for the language -> open the troubleshooter -> open the command line interface
then switch to the C drive
then cd Windows\System32\
rename osk.exe osk.old|
rename cmd.exe osk.exe
close and boot windows normally
click the On-Screen-Keyboard which now opens cmd.exe
net user “username” *
type new password
make sure undo your rename of the cmd.exe and osk.exe things after you’re done
WARNING. As explained on the “About” page that this is a blog based on my notes, whether they fail or not. So proceed at your own risk.
My Zyxel router currently has firmware version 1.00(AAKL.14)C0 and since Zyxel is a good boye, they keep their devices up to date. Like all manufacturers should do IMO.
- Aquire all the firmware files that are available by going to ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/VMG8324-B10A/
- Remove the files that are older than your current firmware, in my case v.14
- BACK UP YOUR CURRENT FIRWARE AND SETTINGS
- Apply ALL updates one by one. Do not skip versions.
