How to Find the Password

By February 19, 2011

Follow me on:

If you are attempting to visit in the browser and are prompted for a username and password, odds are you're trying to log into a Linksys broadband router. The user name can usually be left blank. But what about the password? If the router has had its password changed from the Linksys default, you'll need to know what it was set to.

Username And password both are “admin”

(2) Manan says:

“admin” doesn’t work… I use MTNL….. it keeps on asking again and again…nothing happens.. [Ed.: It means the router's default password was changed, and that new password must be entered at the prompt.]

In desperation I tried clicking the reset button but n.b.g! Newly advised password via does not work nor does the default p/word. It will mean another 20 mins with Talktalk to try to resolve things (I am trying to link up my new Sky “on-demand” box….what a nightmare!

@MS Computer Thanks buddy, that helped me. I had a router that I hadn’t used in years and I thought I had changed the Username/Password cos I read that the Username is admin and the password is 1234 by default but it didn’t work. Username and password were both admin. Thanks again!
