The new Nirsoft application Router Pass View may help computer users in the recovery of router passwords. Many modern routers have an option to backup the configuration of the router into a file so that the settings can be restored at a later time.
These router configuration backups often contain important data like the login password of the router, the ISP username and password and wireless access configuration settings.
Router Pass View has been designed to extract the login information found in router configuration backups. The portable software program supports a limited number of routers with the promise to add additional routers in the future.
Router backup files can be loaded into the software program which will automatically discover and display the login information if the router is supported.
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.
Nothing will be displayed in the interface if the software can’t decrypt the information. It is possible to switch to Ascii Text Mode (F3) or Hex Dump Text Mode (F4) if the information are not displayed correctly.
The information can be saved and HTML reports can be created.
