[1] The Cisco SFE1000P switch’s default IP address is assigned via DHCP, meaning that it’ll be different depending on the network that it’s installed in. The easiest way to determine the IP address for your SFE1000P is to log in to the router or DHCP server that assigned the dynamic IP and look for it in the list of attached devices.

[2] The Cisco Valet M10 & Valet M20 routers are actually supported by Linksys. Cisco owned Linksys from 2003 through 2013 and branded the Valet routers with their Cisco name and logo.

If you can’t find your Cisco device in the table above, just let me know and I’ll look up the default login information for it and let you know. It also helps me out because then I can add it to the list for others.

Next Steps If the Cisco Default Login or IP Above Doesn’t Work

Unless I just completely messed something up for the Cisco device you’re looking at above, if the default username and/or password doesn’t work, it means that it’s been changed.

Unlike residential routers, the business and enterprise class routers and switches that Cisco is known for have specific password recovery features, meaning that a full factory reset (the typical reset-a-password process) isn’t required.

See the Cisco Password Recovery Procedures page for a by-device listing of the specific steps to take to restore the default password for your device.

You’ll need physical access to the Cisco router or switch in question, as well as a computer to use to connect to the device.

If you’re having trouble locating the password recovery steps for your device, Cisco Support has a PDF manual for every device they’ve ever sold which includes help in this area too.

Most network devices operate with the default IP address they come with but routers, and especially switches, in business and enterprise environments are often changed when installed.
