Complete User Guide:
Restore or replace the router software:
  • 1. If there are no problems for users when switching from official to alternative firmware, an attempt to replace one alternative firmware with another may cause difficulties. For example, if you want to replace OpenWRT with DD-WRT (and other combinations), you will need to roll back to the factory software from the web interface and then upgrade to the desired one.
  • 2. This router is practically not killed (in terms of experiments with software), but a situation may arise when it is necessary to recover, but there is no access to the web interface. Then we do this (an example for revision v2, therefore the files are substituted for the revision corresponding to yours):time, two, three. Firmware for recovery via tftpd revision 3.

What can be done in this situation?

On the drain, you can hold the reset for 10-15 seconds

It was like this. I installed the firmware (842nd v1) openwrt 15.05.1 to the factory interface via the web, everything was installed but the web interface was not working. With WinSCP I threw the sysupgrade file after renaming it to code.bin. Then the program PuTTY (ssh) entered the router and before the firmware WEBa changed the password of the entrance to the router to root, only inadvertently put a space before the password, I think ok and the password also confirmed the "space" of root. The router accepted it, after that I launched the web firmware, everything was OK, I rebooted it. At the address 192,168,1,1 web lede is loaded, LuCI asks for a username and password, but it doesn’t fit as soon as I didn’t try it using putty and winscp. He asks for a password. What can be done in this situation? Maybe what tools are there to pick up a password?

Throw off the factory. :)
Turn on the router
As soon as the 'SYS' LED flashes (signaling the system boot), press and hold the 'RESET' button on the back panel until the 'SYS' LED flashes very quickly.
After that, you can open the telnet console at Without a login request and password.

Sorry, confused in the themes, I thought that we are talking about the 841st. Well, this v3 router can still be found on sale. And about this site you can certainly find reviews in the internet, if in doubt.
