Hi,

The default factory password is "admin" less the quotes. Leave the username blank. Then again, it wouldn't matter what you put in for username. It's redundant. It's just concerned with the password - admin.

Thanks.

Router light turned into orange after changing password.


Hi Shaifali,
No worries!
- Can you log back into the router? with the new password or with the old one?
-Has your router been totally re-setted to factory defaults?
- I think you have changed the PPoE connection password which is the internet link password to ISP instead of the router password?

Let me know these questions and I will help you resolve this issue

Change password


Default Password


  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password.Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panelWrite down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
For FR314, FR318, and FV318
These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348
See Updating Router Firmware That Uses a Manager Port.
This applies to:
All NETGEAR devices

How do i find user name and password for my router


default is

username: admin
Password: password

If it was changed and you dont' know it, you will have to reset the router. There is a reset switch either on the back or bottom of the modem. While plugged in hold the switch in for atleast 30 seconds or until all the lights flash on the router. This will clear the router to factory. You will then have to setup the router like day one.

I recently changed the security type of my netgear router from WPA to WEP and i lost the keys to connect it. Now my router will not let me connect to it let alone connect to the internet. Ive tried so many...


In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, u-admin p-and password or u-admin p-1234, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.

I can not change router ip


You need to change the router's IP to avoid conflict with the modem's IP address. You just need to access the router's setup page , default is 192.168.1.1. Default username should be left blank and default password is admin. Once logged in , first page you will see is the Basic Setup page. Just look on themiddle part of this page and there you will see the IP address of the router. Most of the time, if the user has DSL connection , Linksys' IP should be changed to 192.168.2.1. Dont forget to click on Save Settings at the bottom of the page. It will then say Settings are successful. Now click on continue. You can then power off then power back on the router for the changes to apply

Connection prob


I assume you want router info - default username is admin and no password (should be on a sticker on back of router), default config web page is 192.168.0.1. If these have changed and you don't know them, it's probably best to reset the modem to factory defaults - usually by pushing reset button for about 8 secs. User manual should have this info or download it from http://www.linksys.com/ Hope this helps
