Looking for the Cisco SG300-28 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 SG300-28 default password.
However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the SG300-28 default password suddenly becomes very important.
For most versions of the Cisco SG300-28, the default password is cisco. As with most passwords, the SG300-28 default password is case sensitive.
In addition to the SG300-28 default password, you can also see the SG300-28 default username and SG300-28 default IP address in the table below.
If I have that information, I'll include the exact SG300-28 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Cisco SG300-28 version number on the bottom of the switch.

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco SG300-28, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.
For most networks, if the Cisco SG300-28 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the SG300-28 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 SG300-28 default IP address.
In situations where the SG300-28 default password or SG300-28 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Cisco SG300-28 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.
The SG300-28 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the SG300-28 from Cisco Support.
