How to perform router login at

It is very easy to access the router login screen. You don’t have to be connected to the internet in order to access the admin page. Here is how you can log into the router:

  1. Connect Ethernet cable to your computer or you can connect to the network wirelessly. Just make sure that you are connected to the router network.
  2. Open a web browser on your computer and enter in the address bar. If this IP address is not working, then use or as an alternative. If the IP address fails, check the router manual. The IP address listed as ‘default gateway’ will be the correct one.
  3. Now, enter the default username and password to get inside the admin panel. If you know the default credentials, then that’s great, but if the credentials don’t work, then you should enter your router brand to determine the right login credentials.


If you can’t access, then there could be several reasons behind it. Here is how you can troubleshoot the problem:

Check the Cable Connection

Check if your router and computer are connected via an Ethernet cable.

Verify the IP Address

Make sure if you have entered the correct IP address because if there is a spelling mistake, then the router admin page won’t open.

Reboot the Router

If you have tried multiple solutions, but nothing has worked for you, then you should reset the router to factory settings. For that, you need to press the ‘Reset’ button using a pen or paperclip. This will change all the router’s configuration settings to factory defaults.

Update Your Router

You should also check for new router updates occasionally, and if there is one available, you should download it right away.

Call Your Internet Service Provider

If you continue to have problems with your router, then you should call your internet service provider. They will be able to help you with all the problems related to your router.

  • Now, click on the command prompt icon, then, type ‘ipconfig’ into the command prompt window, and finally, hit ‘Enter’. You will see all the information on your screen.

iOS Device
