The model would be handy to know?

You could try a hardware reset, whether that'll clear the password I don't know. The reset procedure seems to be pretty generic for speedtouch routers

1 Make sure the SpeedTouchâ„¢ is powered on.

2 Power off the SpeedTouchâ„¢ by pressing the power button until all LEDs turn off.

3 Press the power button once again (shortly).

4 As soon as the Power/System LED is flashing green, press the power button once
more (shortly).

5 The Power/System LED stops flashing to become solid green. After six seconds, it
starts flashing green again. Press the power button once more (shortly).

6 All LEDs flash green once.

7 The SpeedTouchâ„¢ reboots and will come online with factory default settings.

it may require you to enter a default password - usually 'admin'.
