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

I forgot my login name and password. How can I reset and start over?


Hey there,
Check this diagram of the back of your router: http://etech.maiila.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Netgear_WNR2000.gif
The small button that's labelled as "1" on the diagram is the reset button. It's quite small, so you'll need to use the tip of a paperclip or ballpoint pen. It's designed to be small so you dont hit it by accident :)
Push down and hold on the button for 5 seconds, and release.
Allow your router to reset and turn back fully back on.
It has now been fully restored to factory defaults, and you can start over.
Hope this helped you out! Feel free to rate me if I did help you :)
Cheers

Need to access wirless internet but dont know my security key or passphrase.


Hi connellmandy, no real way around this... Best to reset the wireless router back to factory defaults, reconfigure to lock it down and apply the security key/passphrase to your wireless laptops. you WILL also need to know what your old settings were for example, your ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, your new wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
For Belikin routers:
    •Unplug all LAN cables from the router.
    •Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.

    •Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

    •Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.
By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1


For Netgear:

The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. (Try these before resetting the router.) You may be able to get the wireless security key and/or passphrase.

  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.
Good Luck .. hope it helps out. Most routers have a small pinhole at the back of the modem to reset the unit back to factory defaults.

Forgot my password


Hi,

Most of the NETGEAR devices have the following default username and password except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches:
  • Username is always admin
  • Password is password or (for older devices) 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

Write 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.
Hope i helped you.
