Hi,

With the latest firmware, the default password is the WPS Security PIN, see below knowledge base article on this matter:

Hello Shlomil -

thank you a lot!

That works.
What really surprise me - that official support (Russia) was not able to help me within 3 hours and ask to wait till monday.

Moreover I do believe that this should be included into the device manual!

Thanks again and have a great weekend!
Alexander.
