Recovering the admin password of your Linksys Intelligent Mesh

During setup, a secured system generated admin password will be created to secure your node.  For security reasons, this password will not be visible.  You must change this password by logging into your Linksys app through the Linksys cloud account you created or used during setup.  If the Linksys cloud is down, or you can’t log in using your admin password, you can use the recovery method.  To recover your Linksys cloud account password, click here.

The steps below will provide instructions on how to recover the admin password.  However, if you can log in using your Linksys cloud account, you can simply change the admin password in the Linksys app.  Click here for instructions.
