NETGEAR GSM7224 Default Password

GSM7224 Default Password & Other Default Login Info


Looking for the NETGEAR GSM7224 default password? You probably have little reason to access your switch on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the GSM7224 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the GSM7224 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the NETGEAR GSM7224, there is no default password. In other words, when logging in to the GSM7224, just leave the password field blank if asked for one.

In addition to the GSM7224 default password, you can also see the GSM7224 default username and GSM7224 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The NETGEAR GSM7224 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact GSM7224 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your NETGEAR GSM7224 version number on the bottom of the switch.

Be sure to change the default switch password on your GSM7224 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new GSM7224 password.

Help! The GSM7224 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular NETGEAR GSM7224, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

For most networks, if the NETGEAR GSM7224 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the GSM7224 switch can be determined using tracert, a command available from the Command Prompt in Windows.

See How To Identify Network Hardware IP Addresses on a Local Network if you need help using tracert to find the GSM7224 default IP address.

In situations where the GSM7224 default password or GSM7224 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the NETGEAR GSM7224 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The GSM7224 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the GSM7224 from NETGEAR Support.

Please let me know if any of the GSM7224 default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the GSM7224 default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.
