192.168.1.1 is one of the common DNS Server IP addresses which the routers use as an access point. These servers act as a layer of abstraction for translation between hostname and IP addresses. In the case of routers, these are also where the settings are set-up. With these settings, one can manage security, WPS block, MAC, WLAN settings and various others.
192.168.1.1 Login, Admin Page, Username & Password:
How can you access these settings?
- Make Sure your device is connected to the Router (either on WLAN or LAN).
- Enter 192.168.1.1 in your Browser’s address bar and click Go.
- If you see an error or the address keeps on loading, your network might be using another address. Check the address and use it instead of 192.168.1.1
- Log in with your Admin (or Username) and password in the ADSL Router Login Window.
- In case you have not changed the password or Username, they are the default given in the documentation that comes with the router.
- In case you have changed the password and/or Username and forgotten it, you can press the reset button (a little pushbutton in a cavity below or on the back-side of the router) for about 15 seconds. You would need a pin, a pencil lead or any other thin item to reach to this button. Once the reset is complete, you will be able to use the default Username and Password.
- A successful login leads to the admin portal where you can modify settings.
The administrator should be conscious of these settings if he desires to exploit the complete functionality of a router and establish ethical control over the users of his network.
