Default Router Passwords

Most consumer routers are supplied with default password setting. This is done with assumption that user will login first time using default password and change it. Unfortunately many users never change default password of the router which creates security risk for the home or office network.

If you don't remember your router password you can try to check if default router password work. Most probably your router password was never changed and default password would work. If it doesn't and you don't have any other ways of getting the password you can just reset a router to a factory settings (see router manual for detailed instructions on how to do it).

Below we created a short list of most popular router passwords. It is not comprehensive since it doesn't include every router model but it covers significant number of routers on the market. If you router is not here or default password doesn't work make sure to type following query in search engine "router ... default password".
