Every device that is connected through the Internet has been assigned a unique server location to track the exact address to navigate. An IP (Internet Protocol) address is the most widely used option that keeps a track of the default login gateway of any router. It is a set combination of digits separated through dots in between (Example: 192.168.5.1) and has a range between 0 to 255. As said, it is a unique code value given to every device.
In order to access the admin panel web-based interface of your router, you require an IP address to navigate. The defaults can be located beneath the router itself, however, sometimes you need to look for the same on the internet or the user manual offered by the brand.
With the admin login grant, you can make changes to all your network and personal settings as per your requirements. For your assistance, we offer you a quick guide on how you can log in yourself without any technician’s help.
- Turn your router On and connect it with your laptop or PC through the Ethernet or WiFi connectivity option.
- Open a web browser on your devices such as CHROME, Mozilla Firefox, or Edge and mention the IP address as http//:192.168.5.1 in the URL section. Every router has a default IP address hence it is recommended to check the correct IP for your router’s brand or try among the commonly used ones below.
- Now the next page you see will ask you for the Username and Password to log in. Specify the default values offered to you by the brand or use the below-stated credentials.
- As soon as the grant is given to the admin panel, you can modify, set up, and configure your router’s network as well as personal settings.
Username: admin or user
Password: Password, Pass or Leave blank
IP addresses: 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.5.1, 192.168.100.1
192.168.5.1 IP address Troubleshooting
It might happen that the default IP doesn’t work sometimes. It could be due to certain reasons such as Connection problems, not working, or even due to network issues. Here are some quick troubleshooting methods you can try.
- Connection Issues: Check properly that your router and the device must be connected correctly through the Ethernet or WiFi and your router is getting a proper power supply. The LEDs on the router must be blinking.
- IP Address Not Working: IPs are data that do not have any alphabet in them and also no spacing in between. Check whether the IP entered by you is correct to its form and should be 192.168.5.1.
- User Credentials Mismatch: The most frequent and common issue is not remembering the Login Credentials. You can solve this problem by resetting the router using a Hard reset method. A small push button is available on the router for this task.
If In case, all of these methods don’t work for you, then feel free to contact the technical support team for your assistance.
