Is there a way to Reset the Admin username and password back to defaults on my Actiontec device?

Yes, but resetting the password also resets the configuration of the device. So following a reset, the modem or router will need to be completely reconfigured.

To reset the device, begin with the unit powered up and with a solid Green Power light, then using a small tool depress and hold the Reset button on the back of the device just until you see the color of the Power light change from Green to Amber, and then release it before it turns Red.

The length of time that the Reset button must be held to accomplish the reset varies from model to model, but as long as the Reset button is released while the power light is Amber the Reset will be successful.
