  1. Connect your computer device up to your router, either via Wi-Fi or LAN. A computer connected to your router with an ethernet cable is best, to ensure a stable connection. However, as long as your device can access the internet, it will work.

  2. Open up your web browser. Some popular web browsers include Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge, though it doesn’t matter which one you use.

  3. With your web browser open, type your router’s IP address192.168.2.1 into the search bar.

Alternatively, because router manufacturers all tend to use the same default details, you can try one of the below:

  • Username: admin Password: admin
  • Username: admin Password: password
  • Username: admin Password: 1234
  • Username: guest, Password: guest
  • Username: user Password: 1234

Once you successfully login to your router, you should make sure you change those login details to something only you know.

Then, your computer you are on could have as its address and so on. These addresses get used across your Wi-Fi network to help one device recognize the other. These chains of numbers ensure that a device can use the internet. Your house has a physical address, and your computer has an IP address, both of which allow you to receive mail to the correct destination.

Your IP address is not just a random chain of numbers. The current standard for an IP address consists of 4 blocks of numbers ranging from 0 to 255, with a period separating each number.

  • Double-check that the IP address you are trying to search for is correct. Check your IP address, make sure you are only using numbers, and the point between each number is a period, not a comma. If you are 100% sure you have the right IP address and still can’t connect, then the problem lies elsewhere.

  • There is a simple fix known throughout the IT world, have you tried turning it off and on again? Reboot your router by pressing the reset button located on the back or base of your router. Let the unit run through its reboot process and try to log in once more.

  • If the reboot hasn’t fixed the issue, then it may lie with your computer and not your router. A firewall is in place to protect your computer from outside threats though it may be the very thing that is stopping you from connecting to your router. Disable your computer’s firewall and try to connect to your router once more.

Usually, you can find the IP address detailed on your router's base, though what if that's not the case? Like your Wi-Fi network name, you can find your router's IP address with the actual steps depending on your computer's operating system.

  3. With the Command Prompt open type in “ipconfig” and hit enter.
  4. You will receive a variety of information. Scroll through it until you find Default Gateway, which will have your router’s IP address listed alongside it.

There is also another method for finding your IP address on a Microsoft Windows computer.

  1. In the bottom right corner of your screen, you will find the network symbol. Click this symbol, and all the Wi-Fi networks in your area will pop up.
  2. Select your network.
  3. You will get taken to a page that contains a variety of information relating to your Wi-Fi network, including your router’s IP address.

Of course, not everyone uses Microsoft Windows, so for computers running on Mac OS X:

  1. In the top left corner of the screen, open up the Apple menu.
  2. With the drop-down menu open, select System References, then select Network References.
  3. With that menu open, select Wi-Fi or LAN, depending on how you have connected your computer to your router.
  4. You will find your router’s IP address next to the word router.
