Although the login credentials are same for most Motorola routers, but if you are not able to get inside the web interface of your Motorola router, then you need to reset it.
What to do if you have forgotten your Motorola router password?
If you have changed your Motorola router’s username and/or password and can’t remember as to what the new username and password was, then you don’t have to worry at all. You can reset the Motorola router to its default factory settings, which will reset the username and password to ‘admin’ and ‘motorola’ respectively.
To reset the router to default password, you need to do a 30-30-30 reset, which you can do by following below-mentioned steps:
- Begin with powering on your Motorola router followed by resetting the same. For that, you need to press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.
- While keeping the reset button pressed, you will have to disconnect the router from the power supply. As you do so, make sure to press the reset button for another 30 seconds.
- As you hold the reset button, you need to turn on the router again by plugging the power cable back into the power supply followed by holding the reset button for another 30 seconds.
- With that, your Motorola router is going to be reset to the default factory settings.
In case, the Motorola router doesn’t reset to factory settings, then you will have to get in touch with Motorola router support providers.
Note – It is important for you to change the default username and password to enhance the security of Motorola router once it has been reset to factory settings, as default passwords are known to everybody. You should change the password to something that is impossible to decode. Use a mix of uppercase and lowercase alphabets, numerals and special characters to ensure that your network becomes impregnable.
