Login to Router Admin Panel

Just type address in your browse search bar (not in google search)

Username: admin

Password: admin or password or blank

Pro tip: Click the above button to login to router directly

In this article, we will guide you through the process of logging in to your router with IP address.

How to Access Your Router’s Admin Page

To log in to your router using the IP address, follow these steps:

  • Step 1

    Ensure that you are connected to your router’s network. You can connect via Wi-Fi or using an Ethernet cable.

  • Step 2

    Open your web browser and type in the address bar. Press Enter.

  • Step 3

    A login screen should appear. Enter your router’s username and password. If you haven’t changed them, you can typically find the default login information on a sticker on your router or in the router’s documentation.


In some cases, your router might be using a different default IP address. Other common default IP addresses include and If doesn’t work, try using these other addresses.

How to Assign To Your Computer as A Static IP Address

If you need this address to be static (reserved) for some reason, you can assign it manually. We will give a step-by-step explanation for Windows users. Linux and Mac OS users will have to wait for our next article.

First of all, you should know that you will have to remember (or better write down) some IP addresses. When you use the command ‘’ipconfig /all’’ in Command Prompt, you will get all kinds of data.

The things you have to write down are subnet mask (usually for any 192.168.x.x gateway), default gateway address, and DNS server addresses. When you are done, we can start the process of assigning static IP to your device.

Step 1 – Open Network and Sharing Center by right-clicking on the network icon in the bottom-right corner of your desktop and selecting this option

Step 2 – In Network and Sharing Center, select Change Adapter Settings

Step 3 – In this new window, you should right-click on your Wi-Fi network and select Properties

Step 4 – The window with Wireless Network Connection Properties will open. In Networking Tab, search for IPv4, left click once to select it and then left click on Properties

Step 5 – Ipv4 Properties window will open. You should stay in General Tab. In order to type in the new address ( or any other), you have to select ‘’Use the Following IP address’’ and type in the address you want to assign (that’s the first field).

In subnet mask and default gateway fields, you should type in those addresses from the command prompt. Then, enter DNS server addresses (those from command prompt) and click OK.

Problems You May Encounter When Trying to Assign As A Static IP To Some Device

This process of assigning a static IP address to your device seems fairly simple, right? Well, usually it is simple, but sometimes, you may encounter some problems that could make networking impossible.

IP Conflicts

The biggest possible issue is an IP conflict. If two devices are in conflict that basically means that they have the same IP address. Since IP address has to be unique, having two devices with the same IP is not a normal situation.

When you have two devices within the same network with the same IP address, none of these devices will be able to access the network (or the internet).

That could easily happen with the address from our title. Why? Well, it’s simple. Let’s say you want to connect your device to a home network and assign static IP ( to this device.

Imagine that you already have 2 or 3 devices present, and your new device is fourth. DHCP server (which is inside your router) assigns IP addresses to other devices.

So, if your router’s gateway address is, and you have 253 different addresses at your disposal (from to, your DHCP server will assign addresses from this pool automatically. The first device will get, the next one will get, etc.

So, it is possible that this address you want to assign to your new device is already taken. If you assign it to your new device, you will cause an IP conflict and two devices with the same IP won’t be able to connect to the internet.

The way to avoid this conflict is to find the device with the exact IP address you want to assign to your new device and disconnect it.

That way, this IP address will be free again (unassigned) and you will be able to reserve it for your new device. When you connect that old device again, some other IP address will be assigned to it by DHCP server and the conflict will be avoided.


This is closely related to the previous topic. If you have more than 2 or 3 devices, there is a great chance that this address is already taken.

If you have even more devices and you don’t want to check which device obtained that specific IP you want to use, you should take some higher host number.

For example, if there are 10 different devices connected to a network, is probably already taken, so if you want to be on a safe side, you can choose address like or You just have to be aware of the number of available addresses in DHCP server pool.
