Two things I've learned from this:

In addition to noting the new password you give to a device, also note 
along with it the default password to it.  You never know when some tech 
support person is going to tell you -- or for some other reason you 
might need -- to reset a device back to defaults.

Secondly, don't rely on tech support to be able to say what that default 
password is.
