So recently i wanted to test if i can capture my own packet that i send to the router. To see if i can see the password in clear text but it doesn't show up as clear text. It shows a different password. This is the following TCP stream that i think sent the gateway the password.

POST /LoginCheck HTTP/1.1

The password is Base64 encoded, simply reverse the encoding and you will have the password.

admin Base64 encoded is YWRtaW4=
