What is default password for this user? Is there a way to modify default password so it does not reset when it is rebooted?

Leave the username blank, and the password is admin. If you set that, it will hold it automatically, unless you use the reset button to set it back to the factory defaults (not something you can do by accident since you have to hold the button in for 5 seconds).

Moab, if that is all it took, I don't feel too bad. –  KCotreau Jun 6 '11 at 22:31
Which is exactly why you should always change the default password on a wireless router. –  BryceAtNetwork23 Dec 24 '11 at 17:31
