Cisco SF300-24 Default Password

SF300-24 Default Password & Other Default Login Info


Looking for the Cisco SF300-24 default password? You probably have little reason to access your switch on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the SF300-24 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the SF300-24 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Cisco SF300-24, the default password is cisco. As with most passwords, the SF300-24 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the SF300-24 default password, you can also see the SF300-24 default username and SF300-24 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Cisco SF300-24 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact SF300-24 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Cisco SF300-24 version number on the bottom of the switch.

Be sure to change the default switch password on your SF300-24 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new SF300-24 password.

Help! The SF300-24 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco SF300-24, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

For most networks, if the Cisco SF300-24 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the SF300-24 switch can be determined using tracert, a command available from the Command Prompt in Windows.

See How To Identify Network Hardware IP Addresses on a Local Network if you need help using tracert to find the SF300-24 default IP address.

In situations where the SF300-24 default password or SF300-24 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Cisco SF300-24 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The SF300-24 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the SF300-24 from Cisco Support.

Please let me know if any of the SF300-24 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the SF300-24 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
