How to find your router’s IP address
You can quickly look up your router’s gateway IP address by entering a command in an elevated command prompt. Here’s how to do it.
In Windows, go to start menu and search for Command Prompt or CMD. Right-click it and select Run as administrator. In the command prompt, enter the following command.
You should then be able to see a list of your network adapters. Look for your main Ethernet or WiFi adapter that you are using to connect to your router. The Default Gateway listed under it shows the router’s IP address it’s connecting to. This is the correct IP address that you should be using to login to your router.
Another way to find your router’s IP address is by right-clicking your network icon on the taskbar and select Open Network and Internet settings. Go to Change adapter options. Right-click your network adapter and select Status. Then, go to Details tab. Your router’s IP address should be listed as the IPv4 Default Gateway.

Default Router’s Username and Password
Here’s a list of some of the most popular routers and their default username and password.
If these general default passwords don’t work, you can search more specifically with the model of your router on Google.
If you are still unable to login to your router due to incorrect password, your router probably already have a configured password. You will have look for whoever’s in charge of configuring your router/modem to retrieve the login credentials. You should also try to call your ISP for further assistance.
While we don’t recommend doing a hard reset for your router, doing so can force the router to reset into its factory state, thus, allowing you to use its default username and password for admin login. Please know that hard reset a router would alter, remove and reset all the settings and configurations ever made on the router to factory state as if it was never used before. Reset at your own risk.
