With a brand new Netgear WNR2000, below are everything that you need to know about the default password and how to reset the login information if you have forgotten the WNR2000 password.
Default Netgear WNR2000 Login Password
You can access the Netgear WNR2000 N300 modem with any browser and use the IP login address. Remember to use Ethernet connection when you login to your router to change settings, this way you ensure that the changes are put in place and no data is lost. If you do decide to use Wifi connection instead, the default wireless ID is NETGEAR.
If the default login IP address does not work, consider going for a hard factory reset so you can configure your modem.
Username and admin password:
Default IP login address: 192.168.1.1, http://www.routerlogin.net, http://www.routerlogin.com
Default Username: admin
Default Password: password
If the default login combination is not working and you get an access denied message, then you or someone else may have made any changes to the Netgear WNR2000 username and password and forget it. You will have to do a hard factory reset to restore the original defaults. Perform the hard reset by holding down the white reset button on the back panel with a pen for roughly 5~10 seconds and reset default.
Changing Netgear WNR2000 Login and Password
It is advised that you change your WNR2000’s default login to protect against unauthorized entries or edits to your modem. To change the factory default login, go to the following screen and change your login combination.
Look under Maintenance -> Set Password and use to change the username or the password. Note that you will need the “current” login information to make any changes. However, with the factory reset your default WNR2000″old” password combination would be password.
