The Netgear router comes with the default password and username. But, as a user, you must consider changing the default login credentials as soon as possible to prevent unauthorized access.

These login details are quite important to log in to the web interface of your Netgear router. After accessing the web interface you can make changes in the settings of your router. While setting up the new password you need to keep certain things in mind.

You must build a strong password that includes uppercase & lowercase letters, special characters, and numbers. The Netgear router comes with a "password recovery feature" through which you can recover your password.

How to Set Up a Netgear Router Password?

Following is a step-by-step guide to setting up a Netgear router password -

  • First, connect your computer or any device to your router with an ethernet cable. Forming a connection with the help of an ethernet cable gives stability to the connection.
  • Now you have to open the web browser that you use.
  • In the search bar you have to enter or any of the three following IP addresses-

  • In case you have changed the default IP address of your router you can consider entering the newer one.

NOTE- If you are still not able to access the router settings then you can check the "I cannot access my router settings" article for guidance.

  • You will have to enter now the default login details including the username and password. The default credentials for Netgear routers are

Username - admin
Password -Password

NOTE- In case you have changed the default login credentials you are supposed to enter the changes details. And if you do not remember your new password or username then you should perform a factory reset to set the router back to the factory default settings.

  • After entering the login credential you have to select the 'advanced tab" and then choose the "wireless setup" option.
  • The password (network key) for your wireless network will be on the right side of the passphrase in the box.
  • You have to enter the required wifi password and hit the "apply" option to save all the changes.
  • Now that you have saved the changes, search for the wireless network and connect with the devices by entering the new password (network key).
