NETGEAR CGD24G Default Password

CGD24G Default Password & Other Default Login Info


Looking for the NETGEAR CGD24G 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 CGD24G default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the CGD24G default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the NETGEAR CGD24G, the default password is password. As with most passwords, the CGD24G default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the CGD24G default password, you can also see the CGD24G default username and CGD24G default IP address in the table below.

Note: The NETGEAR CGD24G default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact CGD24G version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your NETGEAR CGD24G version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your CGD24G to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new CGD24G password.

Help! The CGD24G Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular NETGEAR CGD24G, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the NETGEAR CGD24G default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the CGD24G 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 CGD24G default password or CGD24G default username has changed, you'll need to reset the NETGEAR CGD24G to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The CGD24G manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the CGD24G from NETGEAR Support.

Please let me know if any of the CGD24G default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the CGD24G default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
