How to Hack Router Password to Access Router Control Panel?
So I'll spare you the long backstory, but I've been blocked out of my own router.
The blocking is through the parental controls which makes me laugh since I'm a university student staying at home.
What I'd like to know how to do, is to hack into my router to disable parental controls at will. I have a live USB with Kali for my laptop. I'm not too experienced with Kali so I'm not sure what to do.
The other option I've thought is using the Keystroke Sniffer from the Security Oriented C tutorials and hoping I get lucky. I just don't want anti malware to detect anything.
The router is a Linksys EA4500 Smart Router. It has "Smart-WiFi" that has a login with a router password. Somewhere I feel the password is stored but I don't know where or how to really find it. From what I can gather, it's not stored directly on the desktop computer connected directly to the network. The issue is not the Wi-Fi password, but the router password to access the router settings. I'm basically trying to "recover" the router password rather than reset it since I don't want to tip anyone off.
Any help at all would be nice.
P.S. I'm writing this from phone so I'll upload pictures at a later date.
