So I'm having trouble logging into my Motorola SURFboard SBG6580 modem/router, and I go to the " " link to get into it, and I was told by the guy who set it up for me, as well as countless people on the internet, that the default login information is "admin" for the username and "motorola" for the passwords(without the "" of course), but it keeps telling me it's incorrect.... Erm..... Help?
Haha, I don't know how to fix this.

EDIT: I have also tried using " "

EDIT #2: I have also called my provider( Brighthouse Networks ) and the guy on the phone was able to log into the router, but not access the login information to it. He could see the control pannel, but the login stuff was like... Hiding.... o_O

Have you tried Admin for the login and admin for the password, blank password field, Or maybe the simple word Pas%word in the password field for it. There can be many possibilities.

I have tried all of those since posting this question actually, yes. Nothing worked.

With the power on to the modem- hold in the reset button on the back for a minimum of 45 secs. That ought to reset it.
