I have a Netgear JNR1010 router but I am not able to change the router's root password. Router Firmware Version is 22.214.171.124
I tried multiple commands in the Busybox console that came up,
BusyBox v1.6.1 (2013-06-09 15:21:35 HKT) Built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. # chpasswd -sh: chpasswd: not found # <tab> [ grep mkdir siproxd [[ halt mknod sleep arp ifconfig modprobe start-stop-daemon arping igmpproxyv3 mount straceroute ash inadyn msntp tar auth inetd nbnslisten tc bing init nbsmtp telnetd brctl insmod nbtscan test busybox ip netstat tftp cat iptables pc tftpd cp iwcontrol peanuthullc2 traceroute date iwpriv ping true diag kill poweroff udhcpc dproxy killall pppd udhcpc-discovery echo klogd pppoe-discovery udhcpd egrep l2tpd pptp udhcpplus ethtool logic pptp_discovery umount fgrep login protest upgrader flash logmonitor ps upnp.sh flash_test ls reboot vconfig flush_conntrack lsmod ripd watchdog free md5sum rm wget fuser mesg rmmod wscd getopt mini_httpd route zebra getsmaps miniupnpd sh # busybox BusyBox v1.6.1 (2013-06-09 15:21:35 HKT) multi-call binary Copyright (C) 1998-2006 Erik Andersen, Rob Landley, and others.

Can anyone please help me on how to change my root password or shutdown the telnet service. I searched for options in the web interface but to no avail.
Please note that I do not want to change the default firmware due to warranty issues.
