Linksys EA6500 Default Password

EA6500 Default Password & Other Default Login Info

By

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.

Note: The Linksys EA6500 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

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.

Be sure to change the default router password on your EA6500 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new EA6500 password.

Help! The EA6500 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys EA6500, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys EA6500 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the EA6500 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 EA6500 default password or EA6500 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys EA6500 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The EA6500 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the EA6500 from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the EA6500 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the EA6500 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
