Help! The Linksys E2000 default password Doesn’t Work!

It is strongly recommended to choose a password to make it difficult and difficult to guess. This is probably the reason why you can not go to your E2000 router – you have changed the password from an admin to a more complex, which is good!

If you have forgotten your Linksys E2000 default password, you can restore the configuration of the router to your factory default, which will once again change the password to the 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 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 need to reconfigure the SSID and password; Along with DNS server settings, port forwarding settings, etc.

After replacing 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 if you ever reset the router.
