    I need to forward some ports, but when I try to connect to my router's IP address it asks me for the username and password. I do not have a manual for it, and I have tried loads of the various 'default' passwords such as 'Admin' 'Password' etc. None of them seem to work.

    Is there a way somehow that I could 1.Brute force my way into it or 2. Reset the hardware?

    i know on my router, the default username/password is written on the back on a sticker. don't know if you've looked there, but you may want to try it. manually resetting it may or may not reset the password, i'm not sure. probably not though.

    look up the router on the manufacturer's website, it could tell you how to change the password there.

    Most routers have a reset switch on them that will clear the password.

    But good job on not actually telling us vital information like what kind of router you have.

    there's usually a copy of the manual on the manufacturer's website. it should tell you the default password and/or how to reset it back to factory settings.
