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 that you change the default password to a new and personalized one to ensure that the router is safe from unauthorized access.
NOTE: The Router Password is NOT the wireless network’s password.
QUICK TIP: 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.
