Specs: iPhone
I am working remotely for the next few weeks and I don’t have my router info. The only information I can locate is the SSID and router name. I don’t think that I changed my admin login/password but my ex wife could have. Is there any default that I can use I order to get access? It’s admittedly not a huge deal if I can’t, but I would like to be able to maintain security over my things.

"I don’t think that I changed my admin login/password"

Try & if you can't get in, default is admin.

To reset the password, hold the reset button in with a paper clip for about 10sec & then use the default password.

I may have misspoken earlier, I am working remotely from TX and my home location is Iowa. I do appreciate the response though, as far as trying the default I tried Admin and 1234 Hoping that they would work, however; they did not. That was a good idea though! I thought that some routers had a default to the default which would come in handy.

The model number is PK5001Z but as far as the name I am unsure. I know my IP by heart but I don’t think that will allow enough info, I think what you’re trying to tell me is that I’m screwed, right? LOL

Home routers remote login (http/https or telnet/ssh from WAN) is not enabled by default. Usually a setting via the configuration web-page to enable remote login.
Did you enable WAN remote login?

You have to appreciate that asking how to gain access to a remote router whose password you don't know is a question that could, potentially, be misused.

Without physical access to the router there is no easy answer. Luckily, you say it is no big deal - in that case I wouldn't waste further time on it.
