So I went to sign in to my router to make some firewall adjustments and it doesn't like any of the usernames I've tried. How do I recover my username?
This may need to be escalated to a higher tier of support.
There nothing to escalate. Everything you need is on its sticker. If you changed and forgot the default credentials, reset the router to its factory settings.
I agree, this should be simple. Have you tried user; admin password; password? What model device does OP have?
I'll try the router reset to factory settings and start over. The modem is a Technicolor CGM4141.
Good nrws. I used admin/password and was prompted to change the password. I'm in. Thanks everyone for your help.
