Solved Log in info for network devices

Specs: Windows XP, x86 1995 MHz
Is there a way to find out the username/password for a network device when this is not provided by the manufacturer? For example, if I want to connect to an android device on my network using filezilla, how do I find out the log in info?

Gentleman the network devices CurtR was referring to was your wifi router. What he listed were the default logons as to set them up.

What you want is to connect your phone to the network. This ASSUMES you have a wifi router and you know the passphrase to connect to it.

Usually you would connect your phone via usb to your computer, load some drivers and transfer files that way. Otherwise you may need a FTP server and a android/iphone FTP app to access it via the network.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

You ask the owner/administrator of the device for permission and the authentication information.

Not doing so would be hacking which is illegal as well as immoral.

Good to know.

The default for most SOHO level equipment I've worked with is one of the two following:

1)
Username: admin
Password: admin

2)
Username: admin
Password: [blank]

Where [blank] means no password at all. Just input the username and hit [Enter]

If neither works, report back here and include the make/model of your device(s).

I use Xtouch smart phone model X509 which works with android 4.2.1 and also I have samsung S4 with same OS. None of those worked with the suggested setup.

That is exactly true Wanderer, I know the log in info for my router. I asked about "if I want to connect to an android device on my network using filezilla" But what is an FTP server? it is not the same as filezilla?

Ok now it worked. There are aps on google store which work as FTP servers. All I needed to do is to install one of them on the phone and set username password there and I could easily access the phone from the FTP program on the PC. Thanks wanderer!.
