How to Login a Router?

Router is a technical equipment that we are using every day in our life. We are using WIFI internet through router. We are using internet in our daily life in many ways such as watching smart TV, using smartphone, laptop and PCs, smartwatch, etc. So, it is very important to know how to login a router.

In this article I will show you how easily you can login to a router.

Let’s jump into the deep:

Step 1

Every router has a default IP address. After buying a router enter the default IP address to the router for configuring it. If you don’t know the default IP address, write the keywords “IP address of the X router” on your Google search bar.

If you are Mac user then use netstat utility window for getting the IP address. Mobile users should go to advance setting for setup IP address.

Step 2

After entering the IP address successfully to your router, now you need to configure it. You should setup your login name and password to your router. In this case, open the router documentation and get your router’s credentials from there. You can also get router credentials (username and password) from google. But in case you have changed router credentials, and forgot them then you will need to reset it to its default factory settings. To do default factory settings, you will need to press and hold the routers small button for 20-30 seconds. After that, your router will reboot. After successfully reboot you can enter your default user name and password to your router.

Step 3

Next step is to configure your router settings as you want. You can block a specific type of users. You can block some specific sites to not open in you routers network and much more.

To secure your router, you should change username and password of the routers to the new one regularly. Also, change your router default gateway to something new so that no one can try to configure your router settings. If someone does this, then you will have to reset your router to its default factory settings. And in this case, you will lose all of your router previous settings.
