faq:initial_root_password

What is the initial password for root?

Issue: When trying to login via SSH or http, I'm getting asked for a password. What is the initial password?

Solution: Right after OpenWrt installation there is no initial password set. After your first login (with blank password), your very first action should be to set a password, either by using passwd on the command line or in the LUCI Menu System/Administration http://lede/cgi-bin/luci/admin/system/admin
