If nothing helped and you really need access to your 6490 Cable router, there is also the possibility of a factory reset. In most cases you can perform a factory reset by pressing a small button on the back of the router for 10-20 seconds. After that the router lights up and needs some minutes to reset all settings. After a factory reset the router loses the connection to all other connected devices and some devices have to be reconnected to the router after such a reset. If you are unsure, you should consult an expert to help you set up the router again.
