192.168.l0.1 – 192.168.10.1 is the default IP address for routers, but some companies like D-Link or TP-LINK change it to something else, so make sure you check your router company’s settings are before trying this out!
The Default Gateway IP Address is the address your computer uses to access information on other computers outside of your network. This means that if you want a webpage from another website, it will need this number to find and connect with its server. Suppose someone finds out or guesses the router’s IP address. In that case, they can then steal all of our internet traffic by redirecting any requests made towards sites we visit through malicious servers hosted elsewhere, so make sure nobody knows!
How to log in to 192.168.10.1?
Do you know that if your router’s default gateway is 192.168.10.1, it means your router’s admin interface can be accessed by logging in to http://192-168-10-1? Follow these steps:
Step 1: Open your browser and enter the 192.168.10.1 IP address of your router in the address bar.
* Note: Some routers might have a different default gateway IP address, so make sure you check with your manufacturer’s documentation before troubleshooting. If you don’t know how to locate that information, then follow the steps below to find out.
Step 2: Once you see the login screen for 192.168.10.1, enter the username and Password provided by your ISP or Router Manufacturer to login to this interface.
Step 3: Navigate to your router’s wireless settings, usually located in the Advanced or Wireless Settings section.
Step 4: Now, you can customize anything from the router panel.
If you are having trouble accessing your router’s admin panel, don’t type 192.168.l0.1 or http://192.168/. You need to enter a valid IP address that consists only of numbers and not letters – so remember the “O” is for zero!
How to change Network Name and Password through 192.168.10.1?
You can easily change the name of your wireless network and Password through the admin interface. Once you login to 192.168.1o, if a prompt for security doesn’t appear, then use default username/password “admin”/”admin.” When it prompts you with SSID & Password options, click on Edit Wireless Settings in the Networking tab or navigate to System->Network Interface-Wireless (if available).
In the Security settings section, enter any new desired Username and Password, which is mandatory even though they don’t show as such, but that’s what I did just in case anyone else forgot their old one too! You will also need a channel setting between 1 6 at this point, so using Auto Channel Scan option would be perfect because there are channels used.
Step 1) Navigate to Wireless->Wireless Settings.
Step 2) Click on the Advanced Tab and then the Security option.
Step 3) On this screen, you can change your Network name (SSID) and Password.
Step 4) change it and click Save & Apply.
Step 5) Now, you can use the new settings on your laptop or notebook. Make sure you set up other wireless devices to connect with this new network name (SSID).
How to configure 192.168.l0.1 for Wireless Repeater?
Even we can run our router as a repeater, even better than commercial ones out there, by following the steps below:
Step 1: Log in to the admin panel of the original router 192.168/o> http://192.168/. Then Change Network Name and Password as mentioned above but note that same applies to Wireless Repeater too because not using a different SSID will result in connection issues between two routers, i.e., one should be Primary, and the other should be Repeater.
Step 2: Navigate to Wireless->Wireless Settings.
Step 3: Click on the DHCP Server Tab, then unselect Disable Built-In DHCP Server option because we will configure our server IP addresses instead of using the original one provided by ISP.
Step 4: Now, we can set up our router as a wireless repeater using 192.168/1o IP address, i.e., repeat steps 1,2 & 3 mentioned above in this article for the second router but change its network settings as per the below image.
How to factory reset to default settings?
Forgetting your login password to the admin interface of 192.168.10.1 is a common problem for many people. Still, you can easily reset it and regain access by using the default username & Password.
If you had changed the login password for 192.168 – 10. 1 (most users do) then, when trying to log in with new credentials or forgotten old ones, you will be met with an error message ” Login failed: Access Denied. ” This does not mean there’s no way back! The default username created initially is ‘admin’ while its corresponding passwords are ”password”.
Here are the steps to reset your Password
- Open a web browser and type 192.168.1.0 into the address bar
2. Click on “Administration,” then click on “Configuration.” The first question will be about username; enter admin with no quotation marks or symbols and press Enter; this should open up an empty window where you can change both passwords if needed (username/password)
3. Enter a new password for a username that is difficult but not impossible to crack using brute force methods like dictionary words from different languages as well as upper case letters mixed in lowercase just so it doesn’t appear too easy even when weeding out common letter combinations such as ‘a’-‘z,’ etc.
4. Now, you can have a working username and password to login into the router panel.
