Linksys EA4500 Default Password

EA4500 Default Password & Other Default Login Info

By

Looking for the Linksys EA4500 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 EA4500 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the EA4500 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys EA4500, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the EA4500 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the EA4500 default password, you can also see the EA4500 default username and EA4500 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys EA4500 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact EA4500 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys EA4500 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your EA4500 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new EA4500 password.

Help! The EA4500 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys EA4500, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys EA4500 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the EA4500 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 EA4500 default password or EA4500 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys EA4500 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The EA4500 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the EA4500 from Linksys Support.
