Linksys E2000 default password is “admin” for router. This password, like most passwords, is case sensitive, which means, in this example, that you can not use uppercase letters.
You also need to use the admin as a user name. Some linksys router does not require a username, but it must be one in the E2000. To reach the E2000 router, use the default IP address 192.168.1.1. Enter the address in the navigation bar in your web browser to access the login page for E2000.
Help! The Linksys E2000 default password Doesn’t Work!
To make it difficult and difficult to guess, choosing a password is strongly recommended. This is probably the reason why you can not go to your E2000 router – you have changed the password from the administrator to more complex, which is good!
If you have forgotten your Linksys E2000 default password, then you can restore the configuration of the router to your factory default, which will once again change the password to admin.
Here’s how to do that:
01- Make sure the E2000 is plugged in and powered on.
02- Turn the router around so you can see the power cable and network cable plugged into the back.
03- Notice the Reset area—it’s a small hole with an even smaller button inside.
04- With something small and sharp, like a paperclip, press down on that reset button for around 5 seconds.
05- After you let go of the button, wait a good 30 seconds for the router to finish resetting.
06- Now unplug the power cable from the E2000 router for just a few seconds, and then reattach it.
07- Wait another 30 seconds for the router to finish booting up.
08- Now that you’ve restored the settings of the Linksys E2000 router back to their default state, you can log in at 192.168.1.1 with the username and password admin.
09- At this point, it’s important to change the default password to something much more secure than admin. If you’re having trouble coming up with a hard-to-guess password, see these strong passwords for examples.
Remember that the router has been reset, so you must reconfigure any other custom settings before resetting it. If you had a wireless network, you would have to reconfigure the SSID and password; With DNS server settings, port forwarding settings, etc.
After changing all your custom settings, it will be wise to back up the configuration of the router so that you can re-enter this information in the future when resetting the router. You can see how to back up the configuration settings of the router of the E2000 user manual (there is a manual link at the bottom of this page).
