NETGEAR DG834 Default Password

DG834 Default Password & Other Default Login Info


Looking for the NETGEAR DG834 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 DG834 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the DG834 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the NETGEAR DG834, the default password is password. As with most passwords, the DG834 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the DG834 default password, you can also see the DG834 default username and DG834 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The NETGEAR DG834 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact DG834 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your NETGEAR DG834 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your DG834 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new DG834 password.

Help! The DG834 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular NETGEAR DG834, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the NETGEAR DG834 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the DG834 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 DG834 default password or DG834 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the NETGEAR DG834 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The DG834 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the DG834 from NETGEAR Support.

Please let me know if any of the DG834 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the DG834 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
