Obsolete modems/routers

Is there any recycle value in obsolute ADSL modems or should I just put them in my own rubbish?

Drop it/them off to your local ewaste recycling plant. Plenty around Auckland.

Do you think if I guessed the admin password of an obsolete ADSL modem, and then looked at the connection username and password, it might be the same as the username and password of the customers email account at their ISP?

Yes they are recyclable.
Any reputable recyclers will simply dismantle the units to their basic parts.

a fair number of them will be user@xtrabb.co.nz I would think.
in some cases the bb password will be different from the email password.
But yes you might get lucky in some instances.
