Looking for the Linksys EA6500 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 EA6500 default password.
However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the EA6500 default password suddenly becomes very important.
For most versions of the Linksys EA6500, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the EA6500 default password is case sensitive.
In addition to the EA6500 default password, you can also see the EA6500 default username and EA6500 default IP address in the table below.
If I have that information, I'll include the exact EA6500 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys EA6500 version number on the bottom of the router.
