Default Re: forgot password to router???

It says to hold in the reset button for 30 second's and this will revert to default and "admin" as password, both default setting's, but I have tried doing this 3 times, and it does not work. I still have the current 192.168.1.XX number I set it to, and admin is not working as password, so it must still want my password that I set months ago. Is it possible that with this firmware version I have, it is stopping me from doing this?, that holding the reset button for 30 second's, will no longer revert back to default setting's? if anyone has any help....send it this way. thanks, cricket The router is from c.2000 and has been firmware that is pretty much up to date.
Hold the button in for like 5 minutes
