192.168.1.1 ip address is associated with most the Wireless routers and ADSL modems on the market. These are the common default gateway ip address (192.168.1.1, 192.168.l.l, 192.168 0.1) and is used for configuring your Wireless router.
Many users do not know why the address 192.168.1.1 is used, so we will try to explain it as simply as possible. This address is usually the one associated with most of the ADSL, VDSL and FTTH routers in the market. Using this address, we can access the configuration of our router and we can configure, for example, our WiFi network, open our ports, update the firmware or modify any parameter of our configuration.
Normally, the router address is usually 192.168.1.1, but it can vary in the third block being 192.168.0.1 another of the most used addresses by enterprises.
192.168.1.1 Login page, Username & Password Guide
Steps to access the configuration of your router:
- Type http://192.168.1.1/ or 192.168.1.1 in your browser and hit enter.
- Enter the default username and password (admin/admin or admin/1234). If you do not know the password of your router, you may have to reset the configuration to return to the factory settings.
Once inside of the router, you will be in the settings interface where you can change ports, wireless security etc.
If you need help, you can ask in the official forum of your router brand, or if you are a Verizon, T – Mobile, AT&T, Vodafone, or Sprint customer, you can access the official forums that are managed by the tech support personnel.
Remember that you also need to know the user and the password of your router. Normally it is admin/admin, although depending on the company that provides you, the initial values may vary.
Important Tips When Managing Your Router
It is essential to know that once you access the configuration of your computer, you can modify the WPA or WEP key of your wireless network. In case you didn’t know, there are unlock patterns that allow you to skip this security barrier. It is advisable to change the default password of your router since if an intruder tries to connect to your WiFi network and also knows the access code of the router, he/she will have full access to the settings and will be able to use your connection at will. It is also not a bad idea to change the router’s gateway, although this step is for more advanced users who know the details of the LAN interface of the device.
The 192.168.1.1 Page isn’t Working?
Despite entering the IP address 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 in the browser, the router login does not work? Please follow these 7 steps in the router menu.
Nowadays, setting up a new router is much easier than configuring an old one. New WLAN routers come with activated and already secured WLAN network. The password is usually found on a small sticker on the bottom of the device. On some of these stickers, you’ll even see the username, password, and the default IP address – often 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1 or even 192.168.0.1. But when it comes to an older router, however – on which perhaps the IP address or password has been changed – we need to know what we are doing.
7 Ways To Get Access To Your Router Login page
1.) Using cable instead of WLAN: If you can no longer log into your router via WLAN or using 192.168.1.1, it is best to connect your computer and router via a network Ethernet cable. Having a laptop is an advantage here because you can carry it directly to your router – maybe the cable is not long enough to connect to your desktop PC.
2.) Find the IP address of the router: To find out the gateway and the IP address of our PC just follow the below steps.
3.) Open CMD in Windows. The quickest way is to press the Windows key + R at the same time. Type “cmd” in the opening line, and confirm.
4.) Now type ipconfig in the opened window and press Enter. Windows will list all the currently installed network adapters. You’ll be able to see the IP address of your router – it is the number next to the entry “Default Gateway“.
5.) Enter IP address in the browser correctly:
Now open your web browser and type the number – in our case, it was not 192.168.1.1, but 192.168.1.254 – in the address line. Press Enter. You shouldn’t ever type “http://” before the number. Doing so will only give you an error message.
6.) Check the IP settings in Windows
If you do not see the login screen of your router, like the Fritzbox, at this point, it may be because the IP address has been entered manually. You can check this in the Network and Sharing Center of Windows, found under Control Panel, Network, and Internet (Windows
7). In Vista, Windows 8, and Windows 10, you’ll find it in a similar way.
Now click on “Change adapter settings” and right-click on the router network connection. Select “Properties” in the context menu. In the pop-up list, locate Internet Protocol Version 4 and choose Properties. Make sure that “Obtain an IP address automatically” is selected. The same applies to the DNS server address.
Now repeat steps 2, 3, and 4.
Things to do When you Forgotten your Router password?
If you forgot your Wi-Fi router’s username and password, you’ll need to reset the router to factory settings.
If you need to do this, you will find a reset button on the top or the sides of the router. Sometimes the button can only be activated with the help of a sharp pencil or a wire. You may need to hold down the button for several seconds – the exact time can be found in the router manual.
Make sure everything will work the next time
If you wanted to log into your router to (re) configure your WLAN, you can do that now. We recommend that you set a strong password for access. In addition, WPA2 should definitely be chosen in the encryption method – don’t even consider WEP, as it’s a really weak security system nowadays.
Enter IP address correctly
Sometimes it’s easier than you thought – you might just have typed the IP address incorrectly. Pay attention to the following spelling:
Be sure to avoid an http:// in front of the address. Also wrong is the input of small letter Ls instead of number 1s. Remember, it’s not 192.168.ll, 192.168.l.2 or 192.168.l78.1. Avoid the use of the vertical bar (“pipe”) to the left of “Y” on the keyboard as well: 192.168.|.|.
Router access still does not work?
- The firewall is to blame
The router is probably being blocked by a firewall. Check if you have a separate firewall or you have one installed as part of your security suite. You can either approve IP access as an exception or temporarily disable the firewall so you can fix your issue. Do not forget to reactivate the firewall afterward. By the way, Windows Firewall shouldn’t be the issue. If you’re using default settings, you should easily access your router.
- Is there child protection software installed?
Another stumbling block could be a child protection software that was installed previously. This filter can deny access to the website of the router interface. In this case, add the IP address as an exception or temporarily disable the software.
- The Browser blocks you
A third, weird possibility: A browser add-on or a browser setting prevents access to your router address. Just try it with another browser.
Tip: Instead of 192.168.1.1 or any other IP address, many routers can also use custom addresses in a browser search bar. With Tp-Link, the router login menu can appear if you enter tplinkwifi.net. If you’re using a NetGear router , type in www.routerlogin.net.
One more note: If you want to try this guide within a corporate network, talk to your admins first.
