Handlink Default Usernames & Passwords
The default credentials needed to login to your Handlink router

Info updated Jan. 29, 2020

The majority of Handlink routers have a default username of admin, a default password of admin, and the default IP address of 10.59.1.254.

These Handlink credentials are needed when doing a login to the Handlink router's web interface to change any settings.
Since some of the models don't follow the standards, you can see those in the table below.

Below the table are also instructions on what to do incase you forget your Handlink router password, need to reset your Handlink router to its factory default password, or the password reset doesn't work.

Tip: Press ctrl+f (or cmd+f on Mac) to quickly search for your model number.

Instructions and common questions

Have you changed the username and/or password of your Handlink router and forgotten what you changed it to?
Don't worry: all Handlink routers come with a default factory set password that you can revert to by following the instructions below.

If you decide to revert your Handlink router to it's factory defaults, you should do the 30-30-30 reset as follows:

  1. When your Handlink router is powered on, press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.
  2. While still holding the reset button pressed, unplug the power of the router and hold the reset button for another 30 seconds
  3. While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and hold for another 30 seconds.

Your Handlink router should now be reset to its brand new factory settings, Check the table to see what those are (Most likely admin/admin).
If the factory reset didn't work, check out the Handlink 30 30 30 factory reset guide .


Important: Remember to change the default username and password to increase the security of your router after the factory reset, as the default passwords are available all over the web (like here).

I still can't access my Handlink router with the default password

Make sure that you have followed the reset instructions correctly as the Handlink routers should always rever to their factory default settings when reset.
Otherwise, there is always the risk that your router is damaged and might need to be repaired or replaced.
