The GSM7324 is a switch manufactured by Netgear. A switch is a networking device used to link computers together under a local area network (LAN). When you set up the switch, you have the option to specify a network administrator login name and password. If you ever forget the password, you can reset the switch back to factory defaults, including the default password. Resetting the switch removes any other security or IP settings on the switch.
