NETGEAR WPN824 Default Password

WPN824 Default Password & Other Default Login Info


Looking for the NETGEAR WPN824 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 WPN824 default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WPN824 default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the NETGEAR WPN824, the default password is password. As with most passwords, the WPN824 default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WPN824 default password, you can also see the WPN824 default username and WPN824 default IP address in the table below.

Note: The NETGEAR WPN824 default password may be different for certain hardware or firmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WPN824 version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your NETGEAR WPN824 version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WPN824 to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WPN824 password.

Help! The WPN824 Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular NETGEAR WPN824, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the NETGEAR WPN824 default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WPN824 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 WPN824 default password or WPN824 default username has changed, you'll need to reset the NETGEAR WPN824 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WPN824 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WPN824 from NETGEAR Support.
