Linksys E1000 Default Password

E1000 Default Password & Other Default Login Info

By

Looking for the Linksys E1000 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 E1000 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the E1000 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys E1000, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the E1000 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the E1000 default password, you can also see the E1000 default username and E1000 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys E1000 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact E1000 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys E1000 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your E1000 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new E1000 password.

Help! The E1000 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys E1000, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys E1000 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the E1000 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 E1000 default password or E1000 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys E1000 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The E1000 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the E1000 from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the E1000 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the E1000 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
