Linksys BEFSR41 Default Password

BEFSR41 Default Password & Other Default Login Info

By

Looking for the Linksys BEFSR41 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 BEFSR41 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the BEFSR41 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys BEFSR41, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the BEFSR41 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the BEFSR41 default password, you can also see the BEFSR41 default username and BEFSR41 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys BEFSR41 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact BEFSR41 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys BEFSR41 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your BEFSR41 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new BEFSR41 password.

Help! The BEFSR41 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys BEFSR41, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys BEFSR41 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the BEFSR41 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 BEFSR41 default password or BEFSR41 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys BEFSR41 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The BEFSR41 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the BEFSR41 from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the BEFSR41 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the BEFSR41 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
