Please delete - I found out it was just a different keyboard layout…. Sorry.
Can you log into the admin panel?
If so, I'd suggest that you update the firmware from there, and start over. It should reset your root password for ssh access, and then when you re-enable it, immediately change it to something decent.
My whitebook (ssh is remotely accessible) is getting hammered by Chinese hackers trying to log in, so if you leave it with an open port and the default passwork, it probably won't take long to get hacked.
