Router password / Linksys smart wifi default login Admin password
This password is your defense against people who are in your network and wish to make changes to your network by gaining admin access to internal admin page of the device i.e. Linksyssmartwifi.com. This password is set during the initial router setup process and it is recommended you do not share it with anyone.
Wireless password / Linksys router login Passphrase
The wireless or the router passkey is different than the other passwords in it that it allows the user to connect to the network as opposed to the above which allows the user to access the admin login page for Linksys. Ensure that you only give this password to people who you think should be allowed on your network. If you lose access to the password, you will have to complete Linksys Router Reset.
This password is used specifically to allow separate network for those who are on your network but who you don’t want should be able to have the access to router login page. This password is created when a user creates a separate network for guests and primary users. You should create this when there are a lot people often visiting on your premises.
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi (LSWF) password
The password that allows you to login to the Linksys account, the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi password is accompanied by your email id registered with the Linksys account. This password allows you to gain access to your Linksys router using online platform and the iOS or the Android app. You can easily have this password changed by going to your account settings.
