How to find your router default IP address?

- If you are running a Windows system, gain access to the command prompt by typing ‘cmd’ in the search bar at Start menu or by pressing the windows button and x key in the same time.
- Type ‘ipconfig’ in the command prompt in order to get the list of addresses
- After you’ve done that, you’re going to find router’s default IP at ‘Default Gateway’ line.
- If you are running a Linux system, open a terminal and type ‘ip route | grep default’, the result will be like ‘default via 192.168.0.1 dev eth0’.
- If you are running MAC OS X, open a terminal, then run this command:’netstat -nr | grep default’, it will output result like ‘default 192.168.1.1 UGSc 50 46 en1’.
The steps are similar in different systems, since your network’s gateway always point to the router, it’s easy to locate the address.
In the router login page, you need to enter a username and a password, which should always be ‘admin’ if you haven’t changed them.

If you have changed the information before, try to reset the router, then locate the router brand in the list and find the password again.
