Default username and Password
Before performing a factory reset on your router, you may want to try the default password and username. While not all the users change their default password and username, therefore; it is worth trying. Besides, you will need the default username and password and password if you end up resetting the router to its factory default settings.
There are some ways to find the default credentials of the router:
- Read your router’s manual:
To locate the default password and username of your router, look for it in its user manual. In case, you have lost your manual, you can often find it by searching on Google for your router’s model number and manual.
- Look for a sticker on your router itself:
Many routers especially those who may have come from your ISP (internet service provider) ship with unique password and these passwords are printed on a sticker on the router itself.
- Try most common username and password combination:
By default, most of the routers use the username ‘admin’ and blank password, a blank password and ‘admin’ password, or both the username and password as ‘admin’
