Generate a random password and print it on a sticker on the underneath of the device.
That's an extra couple of cents...
make a small switch on the front panel that must be pressed to enable administration mode
That's a couple of cents also and really unfeasible if let's say the wireless router is somewhere in the attic while the computer with keyboard is downstairs...
A third alternative would be to disallow administration over the wireless network
So you couldn't administer it if you only have wireless devices and don't happen to have a UTP cable at home...
