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?
No. Thats pretty cut and dry.
I'm referring to the router page (Gateway>Login) that comes up at 192.168.0.1 where one can edit the Firewall security, among other things. I have some programs that I need to allow to get through the firewall.
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.
