Lost router admin password (plastic tab)

I've lost the little bit of plastic with the admin and wireless passwords.

 

If I do a factory reset will this allow me to setup a new admin password or just reset it to the current one which I don't know?  I've also see posts where the serial number might work as the password, I'll probably give that a try if the response here is slow.

A factory reset will not help, it will reset to that on your missing label. The serial number route only applies to old Technicolor routers. Which router do you have?

Thanks for the reply.

 

I got lucky.  In addition to putting the default password on the plastic tab which I lost, it's ALSO written under the router next to the serial number I was hoping might work as a password, so I found it during my search Smiley
