Looking for the D-Link DIR-501 default password? You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the DIR-501 default password.
However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the DIR-501 default password suddenly becomes very important.
For most versions of the D-Link DIR-501, there is no default password. Just leave the password field blank if you're asked for a password when logging in to the DIR-501.
In addition to the DIR-501 default password, you can also see the DIR-501 default username and DIR-501 default IP address in the table below.
If I have that information, I'll include the exact DIR-501 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your D-Link DIR-501 version number on the bottom of the router.
Help! The DIR-501 Default Password Doesn't Work!
At some point during the life of your particular D-Link DIR-501, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.
In most cases, if the D-Link DIR-501 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the DIR-501 will be the same as the default gateway IP address configured for your network connection.
See How To Find the Default Gateway IP Address for help.
In situations where the DIR-501 default password or DIR-501 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the D-Link DIR-501 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.
The DIR-501 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the DIR-501 from D-Link Support.
