Linksys WCG200 Default Password

WCG200 Default Password & Other Default Login Info

By

Looking for the Linksys WCG200 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 WCG200 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WCG200 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WCG200, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WCG200 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WCG200 default password, you can also see the WCG200 default username and WCG200 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WCG200 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WCG200 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WCG200 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WCG200 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WCG200 password.

Help! The WCG200 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WCG200, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WCG200 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WCG200 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 WCG200 default password or WCG200 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WCG200 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WCG200 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WCG200 from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WCG200 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WCG200 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
