Instructions and common questions

Forgot your SonicWALL router password?

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

Reset SonicWALL router to default password

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

  1. When your SonicWALL 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 SonicWALL router should now be reset to its brand new factory settings, Check the table to see what those are (Most likely admin/password).
If the factory reset didn't work, check out the SonicWALL 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 SonicWALL router with the default password

Make sure that you have followed the reset instructions correctly as the SonicWALL 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.
