Like most home broadband routers, the administration screens of Netgear routers are password protected. You will be prompted to log in to a Netgear router whenever accessing its home page via its IP address. A default administrator user name and password is set on the router at the factory before being sold.

The default login information for Netgear routers depends on the model as shown below.

Default user names:

  • All Netgear routers: admin
Default passwords:
  • Netgear MR314, RT314 and certain other old models: 1234
  • Netgear WGR614 v4: setup
  • All other Netgear routers: password
You can change these default settings at any time after logging in, but it is not required.
