Linksys EA2700 default password is “admin”. Like most passwords, the Linksys EA2700 default password is case sensitive, which means that you should keep all the letters in lowercase.
In addition to the need of password, the EA2700 router also uses the default user name admin.
The Linksys EA2700 default IP address used to access the router is 19 188.8.131.52. This is a common default IP address used for linky routers.
Which Hardware Version Do I Have?
Some router have different default passwords for some hardware or firmware versions (some router has two or more versions of the same router in some router). However, there is only one version of EA2700, and therefore there is only one set of valid credentials..
You can find the hardware version at the bottom of the model number labeled with “v” or at the side to indicate “version”. If you do not see the version number on your router, then this means that this version is 1.
The default password is useful when you first login to the router, but it can be changed and changed as soon as possible. The only problem with this is that changing the password to something you know only, unfortunately, it is only something you can remember, and thus forget it.
If you have forgotten your EA2700 router password, you can follow the steps given below to reset the settings of linky router to factory default, which will restore the default user name and password as described above.
01- Be sure the Linksys EA2700 is powered on, and then turn it upside down so you have access to the bottom of the router.
02- With something small and pointy, like a paperclip or mini screwdriver, press and hold down the Reset button for 15 seconds. The Ethernet port lights on the back of the router will flash simultaneously to show that the router is resetting.
03- Wait 15-30 seconds for the EA2700 to fully power back on.
04- Remove the power cable from the back of the router, for just 5 seconds or so, and then plug it back in.
05- After another 30 seconds, or once the power indicator light on the back of the router switches from a slow flash to a steady light, the router is ready to be used.
06- You can now login to the EA2700 and reconfigure the lost settings (wireless network password, etc.) with the admin username and password at 192.168.1.1.
07- Be sure to change the router password to something more secure than admin. Also consider storing the new password somewhere safe, like in a free password manager, to avoid forgetting it again.
After resetting them, adding back to all the customizations made in your router can be a difficult process. I recommend backing up the EA2700 configuration in a file that you can restore to the router if you ever have to reset it again in the future.
