Did you try 192.168.1.1 ?

Wireless Router settings:


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, which you can get from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below:


To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.


Things to set:


(Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE OFTEN.)

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).


There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not set mac address limits.

How to log in


Hello, I'm not sure which type of wireless router that is but most router to log in have the same user and password for default.
User: admin
PW: admin
But first, you must be connected to the router via Wi-Fi or by LAN cable.
Follow these steps:
1. Make sure that you are connected to the router.
2. Find out what is your gateway, this is the IP address from the router. You can google by your router model or check the instructions, also most router have the IP address in the bottom of the router.
3. Open a web browser and type the router's IP address, click enter.
4. If everything is correct, a new window should be display prompting to input the user name and password, remember to try admin.
If admin doesn't work, then try:
User: root
PW: 1234
Hope this solve your problem. Good day.

I just received a new modem from my cable company and now my router doesn't work. I tried resetting it and it still doesn't work. What do I do next


Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543

Belkin - Username: Leave the field blank Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.2.1

Buffalo - Username: root Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.11.1

NetGear - Username: admin Password: password Default IP address will be: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

Can't figure out the ssid number on my router


Just log into your router if you need to know it's IP address. Go to the command prompt type ipconfig /all then look for the Gateway IP address input that into your web browser and then hit enter. Go to the Network Settings page and you will see you SSID and password.

If you can't remember your password reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. For your model/brand of router the default IP address is 192.168.2.1 The default password is "admin" Once you are connected to your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be your phone number for example 3109876543.

Well in order to access internet via your router, it needs to be configured as you said its being restored to factory defaults. Also always mention your ISP (Internet service provider), Router model no and Computer type with running Operating system for exact steps to fix such problems
Alright, first of all we need to establish physical connection with the Modem -> Router->Computer, then we will setup router
  1. Connect Ethernet cable from Modem to the WAN port of the router.
  2. Connect another Ethernet cable from Router LAN port to computer LAN port.
  3. Power cycle all the devices (Turn on Modem first, then Router and at last computer).
  4. Usually in case of Cable ISP, router would automatically get connection from Modem and Internet should start working.
  5. Else you can open Router admin page to configure
  6. You need to find the IP address of your router (usually Default IP of Netgear routers is 192.168.1.1). I can't tell what is the IP for your router as you didn't mentioned Model no.
  7. Open Command prompt (Start-Run-CMD) and type IPCONFIG.
  8. Default gateway address is the IP address of your router. (You can also find router's default IP on the its panel below.)
  9. Now next step is to access router interface.
  10. Open Browser and type http://192.168.1.1 (It is just an example, you need to use the IP address of your router, we are assuming its 192.168.1.1). Press Enter
  11. Type "admin" in usename and "password" in password box to login (both are in lower case without quotes)
  12. In the left side you can find Setup Wizard, Click on Yes and then Next
  13. Wait for the process to complete and then hit "Apply".

Hello aclark447, I believe that the default IP address is "192.168.1.1", however if for some reason that doesn't work try running your command prompt (Windows key + r, type in cmd), and typing in IPCONFIG. If you are connected to it, it should be the default gateway. The default username and password for your device is user:guest - pw:guest. Hopefully this will fix your problem, please have a great weekend!
