Router Login Issues

Hey,

I can log in to my NETGEAR account as well as the nighthawk app and make changes. But I need to login to the router to change the router channel and I do not have my user name and password. I saw Support says the default user and password are ‘admin’ and ‘password’ but those aren’t working. Any ideas? Is it a combination of the app password that I have setup?

What are you logging into? Lots of things quality as Netgear accounts.

That's for the browser graphical user interface (GUI), after you have connected to the wifi in the app.

 

If you visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

you can feed in your model number and find the documentation for your hardware.


Just another user.
