D-Link DSR-500 Default Password

DSR-500 Default Password & Other Default Login Info


Looking for the D-Link DSR-500 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 DSR-500 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the DSR-500 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the D-Link DSR-500, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the DSR-500 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the DSR-500 default password, you can also see the DSR-500 default username and DSR-500 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The D-Link DSR-500 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact DSR-500 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your D-Link DSR-500 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your DSR-500 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new DSR-500 password.

Help! The DSR-500 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular D-Link DSR-500, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the D-Link DSR-500 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the DSR-500 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 DSR-500 default password or DSR-500 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the D-Link DSR-500 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The DSR-500 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the DSR-500 from D-Link Support.

Please let me know if any of the DSR-500 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the DSR-500 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
