I still remember the password but i still cant get in.
so here is the question: is there a way to brute force the username instead of the password on my router? if not then that is fine but i would be greatfull for any help. thanks to all that respond.

This is how you know it worked. After that if it's a linksys the default user name should be Administrator and the password should be admin.
My router is just admin admin. But i guess it probably just depends.

thanks for the help guys...
i was also wondering how http brute force programs are actually able to process though the login scripts so fast or how they know which field to enter. i am still new to most kind of attacks that are out there.
also similar to this site and insecure.org, are there other good sites that provide lists or good software that you could point out. i want to eventually write my own security programs(haven't figured out what kind specifically yet). trying my best to learn what i can when i can. thanks to all that respond,later
