Default credentials are useful in instances when you do not know the password for a device, you need to set up a device again, or you need to reset a device to the factory default settings.
Note: Restoring a device to its factory default settings erases all configuration changes that you saved to it. 
To determine your product's default password, find your product type in this list:
Most NETGEAR products:
Exceptions: ReadyNAS and ReadyDATA storage systems, fully managed switches, and newer extender products that require you to create credentials during initial set up.
  • Username for all models: admin
  • Password for current models: password
  • Password for very old models: 1234

NETGEAR ReadyNAS and ReadyDATA products:
  • Username for all models: admin
  • Password for ReadyNAS OS and ReadyDATA OS: password
  • Password for RAIDiator firmware: netgear1
  • Password for Infrant firmware: infrant1

NETGEAR fully managed switches:
  • Username: admin
  • Password: Leave blank because these products do not use a default password.
