"But some ISP's including the only one in my region, lock down the router 100%, no passwords will be given out ever etc"

In most cases, Wireshark will allow you to pull the ISP account username and password from a router, since the handshake negotiations are usually done in plain text. In fact, this is the only way you can acquire your password info if you have a Sky Broadband subscription.
