need factory default password for my new router

October 6, 2012 at 06:52:08
Specs: Windows 7
My brand new SmartRG sr350n router didn't come with any password from the factory but asks me for a network security key before i can even get into it for my settings. Does anyone know the network security key that comes from the factory for this router?

Often times these are printed right on the bottom of the router.

Contact the company or see the owners manual.

In some cases you might even guess like admin or root or user or name of device or nothing.

New to you may mean used by someone so reset it to default only if you don't have a config set in it.

The default name and password are both "admin". You could have found this out by reading the manual. You would be well advised to do so before attempting any further configuration.

As already mentioned, if the router was not bought retail by you it may have been changed; in that case you need to ask the supplier. (You could reset to factory default, but that would lose all configuration settings which may not be what you want.)

Sorry ijack I assumed after a search that the router came from an isp, and was setup with the network key automatically(at&t and Comcast do that in my area, and you have to acquire the key from the bottom of the router)

That's certainly a possibility; it's not entirely clear from the OP, is it.

I didn't actually find a source for the base password and username for the router, I guess I was looking in the wrong places, I normally can pretty easily (another good reason for people to change it) I agree with six as well.

I fear you may have misunderstood! my remarks. Although appearing right after your post (the problem with non-threaded forums), they were directed at the OP. They should have received a manual with the router and/or know whether they got it from an ISP.

Forgive me if my remarks appeared to be directed at you; no reason why you should have access to the manual or know where the router came from.

That wasn't how i took it, I saw that was the intention. I just found it odd that I didn't find a source for it, I usually have better luck googleing this sort of thing :D
