[1] These NETGEAR switches have default IP addresses that are assigned via DHCP, meaning that the IP address is different depending on the network the switches are installed on, information that you can get by checking the dynamic IP address that the DHCP server (oftentimes the router on the network) has assigned to it. The IP address listed next to some of the DHCP-assigned default IP addresses in the table above are the default IP addresses if there is no DHCP device on the network or there was an issue assigning an IP.

[2] The NETGEAR FSM726 network switch comes in three hardware versions. Versions 1 and 2 have a default password of 1234 while version 3 does not require a default password at all (leave it blank) and has a backup default IP of if there's no automatic assignment by a DHCP server.

Change Your NETGEAR Default Password

While you can log in to your NETGEAR router or switch with the default data, this information is all public. This means that anyone can access any NETGEAR device and make changes, including injecting malware and doing other damage.

What to Do If the NETGEAR Default Password Doesn't Work

When the NETGEAR default password for your device is no longer the configured password, reset the device to the factory defaults.

To factory reset most NETGEAR routers, use a pen or a paperclip end to press and hold the red Restore Factory Settings button, found on the bottom of the router. Do this when the router is powered on and hold the button for 10 seconds, or until the power light starts to blink.

When you release the button, the NETGEAR device restarts automatically. After the power light turns solid white or green, the device is reset and back up and running, now with the default password listed above for your model.

If this process doesn't work, reference the PDF manual for your specific NETGEAR router, available from NETGEAR Support.
