    Default Hydra/Medusa cant fight non-standart login procedure - when only password asked?

    I've got zyxel presige 650r-e1 as my gate to the internets at home. There is one detail I must to admit - when you loggin into with telnet, it's doesn't ask you for login name, just a password. For this particular test I set its password for telnet configuration textual mode as default one - "1234". Then I tried to brute that password with hydra and medusa - unsuccessfully.
    At first, I composed an dictionary file from huge table of default passwords with awk and sed. Tools accepted it, did a scan (i used verbose logging and saw all attempts for each of the login/password combination) - there was nothing in output, that could tell me I successed.
    Then I just fed them correct password as an password and login command line options (neither hyndra, nor medusa allows to use just the password command line option alone; so, may be they both just weren't built with this cause (just only password in telnet session) in mind?) - for no avail. It just tried the correct passwords and exited, I weren't able to find in output any records stated that "bruting" what successful in that case either.
    I haven't got any other routers currently, so can't just check it with another piece of equipment, one with traditional login procedure - that would ask both login name AND password.
    So, did this was my fault due to lack of experience, or these tools really can't correctly confront such non-standard login prompt? And what would you suggest as a substitution to them? Any other bruteforce utility, more suited for that particular case?

    Interesting case, hydra should have work, contact hydra authors directly to provide some more data and get some help.
