Cisco routers are routers that Cisco, a leading provider in network devices, produces. Cisco has millions of customers worldwide and produces thousands of products, including routers, modems, and network storage devices that allow the user to connect to the Internet. Cisco also produces USB based Internet cards and distributes service plans that a wide variety of Internet Service Providers offer.
Cisco Router Default Passwords
Like any other router, all Cisco routers include a built-in control panel that allows the user to change configuration settings, enable the router to work with other devices, and setup network security. Users can access this control panel by entering 192.168.102.200 into any browser’s address bar. The user will then be prompted for his/her username and password, which is the default information printed on the bottom of the Cisco router if the user has never accessed this control panel before. If the default information is not printed on the bottom of the Cisco router, the user may access the router’s control panel by entering “admin” in the username field and “password” in the password field.
How to Change a Cisco Router Password
If the user wishes to change his/her password in order to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the Cisco router’s control panel by entering the default information, he/she can do so by logging into the Cisco router and opening the Configuration menu. From there, the user can change his/her password by entering the old password and creating a new one.
How to Reset a Cisco Router Password
If the user has forgotten his/her password, he/she can reset the Cisco router by pushing any small, pointed object into the “Reset” button found on the bottom of the router. This will erase all content and configuration settings on the router and allow the user to access the router’s control panel by using the default information.
