Most of the routers shipped to customers with default passwords. In order to enter for the first time in the router management interface, you will need to enter the default password in data entry form. Typically, this password is specified in the documentation that comes in set with the router.

If you do not have documentation (you got a router from someone as a gift, or buy a router that was previously used, or simply lost your documentation), you can try using the default passwords for the router and see if they work. The standard passwords are the same for each router of specified brand and specified model. If you search only by brand and model of your router, you can find the default passwords and usernames.

If you think that your router password has been changed and you do not know the new password, then you have is one more opportunity - a hard reset of the router. For specific model of router you need to check and determine how you can reboot it (usually you will need to hold down a specific button on the router for a specific amount of time).

If your router is not represented here, then use the Internet search engine. You shall search by entering a specific router model and adding the word «password».
