Popular router passwords

It is frequently happens that you need to fix something on your router. But when you try to connect to its administration web interface you get a screen asking for username and password. It is all good if you setup the router yourself or know a person who did it. But if you don't things may get a bit tricky.

Luckily all routers have simple default passwords and not many people who setup home or small business networks take time to change them. Thus there is a good chance that default router password will get you into the router administration interface.

First of all you need to check a brand of the router. Each router brand uses different username/password combinations.

Netgear MR314, RT314 and some older models use password: 1234
