Recovering the admin password of your Linksys router or node

This article will show you how to change or reset the router password using the recovery key on the router’s product label if you can’t log in to your router using your admin password. 

If you can log in using your Linksys cloud account, you can also
change the admin password in the Linksys app or the LinksysSmartWiFi.com page.

Some steps may vary slightly on an Android™ device.

 

Directions

1. Open the Linksys app on your mobile device.

2. Tap Manage Your Wi-Fi (iOS) or Log in (Android).
