- How to check and update the router password using your Linksys cloud account
The router password is an administrator password used when accessing the router’s web-based setup page. The default router password for all Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers is admin. However, it is recommended to personalize your password to ensure that the router is safe from unauthorized access.
- The router password is NOT the Wi-Fi password. For instructions on changing the basic Wi-Fi settings using the Linksys cloud account, click here.
- Images of the web-based setup page may differ depending on your router's model number.
- If you forgot your router password, you can perform a hardware reset to restore your router to factory default settings. However, this also means that your router will need to go through the reconfiguration process. For instructions on how to reset your router, click here.
