Linksys WRK54G Default Password

WRK54G Default Password & Other Default Login Info

By

Looking for the Linksys WRK54G 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 WRK54G default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WRK54G default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WRK54G, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WRK54G default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WRK54G default password, you can also see the WRK54G default username and WRK54G default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WRK54G default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WRK54G version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WRK54G version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WRK54G to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WRK54G password.

Help! The WRK54G Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WRK54G, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WRK54G default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WRK54G 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 WRK54G default password or WRK54G default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WRK54G to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WRK54G manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WRK54G from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WRK54G default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WRK54G default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
