Hard Reset / Unable to Log In

I hard reset my FI9826W cameras but now I am unable to log in using admin and an empty password. Does anyone know if the default password is different in the newer firmware versions? I know the reset worked because the cameras are now back to port 443. Please help.

I was able to resolve this issue by throwing them into the trash. I will *never* purchase anything that even looks like it came from Foscam again.
