What is the username and password?

admin/admin is the most common router login and router password. However, that depends on the type of router. Other popular username and password combinations are admin/Admin, admin/password, and admin/1234. These router default logins and passwords are case sensitive. You can check out the list of common router logins if you aren't sure what your login might be.

If you have forgotten or can't find the login or password for your router, there's usually a small reset button on the back of the router. Press and hold this button for a few seconds until lights on your router blink. Once your router has rebooted, the factory default username and password will be in place again.

CAUTION: Resetting the router using the reset button will erase any custom configuration and put the router back to factory settings.

Usually, port forwarding is disabled in your default or basic settings to protect the connected devices on your home wireless network.

Routers set as the IP address used to log in to the router's admin page. Router companies use the address as a gateway or access point for admin access to manage router settings. From the admin page, you can change passwords, change access or users, and more, including LAN, WAN, WLAN settings; security settings; DNS settings; and the WiFi SSID, which is the name of the WiFi network.

Changing default username and password

The first thing you should do once you’re on the admin page is change your default router password to a new, secure password as most default passwords are the same. Leaving the default router or WiFi password makes your router, modem, and home network vulnerable to hackers.

Changing the SSID

Access the router and from the settings page, you can change the SSID (WiFi network name). It’s a good idea to change the name to something easily recognizable that will stand out from other networks. This is especially helpful if your neighbors have the same ISP default network names.

Furthermore, if you frequently have guests at your house, it’s a good idea to set up a separate guest SSID.
