When we need to connect our desktop PC with printers using WiFi or any configuration using WiFi, there involves passwords, network keys and many more. So in modern routers, it allows you to backup the configuration of the router into a file, and then restore the configuration from the file when it’s needed. The common problem or say advantage is that all the routers are password protected and simply default passwords like admin/admin or 1234/1234 or any lame passwords will be given default, we change it to stronger ones for security reasons and also we backup the configuration file to safety.
The backup file of the router usually contains important data like your ISP user name/password, the login password of the router, and wireless network keys. If you lost one of these password/keys, but you still have a backup file of your router configuration, RouterPassView might help you to recover your lost password from your router file.
