For all this you need to know the IP address of router, in order to excess the routers various settings.
The default IP address of most of the routers is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or in some cases it could be 192.168.2.1. It could also be possible, that you may have changed the router IP address and now you can not remember.
What ever may be the reason, its not difficult to find ip address of router. There are two very easy ways with which you can easily find ip address of router.
Two Methods to find IP Address of Router:
Method 1 : Click on start > in the search box type “cmd” > click on “CMD” to open the windows command prompt window. Now type the following command and press enter.(copy paste the command)
cmd /k ipconfig
Method 2: Open the command prompt again as above and this time type the following and press enter.
cmd /k tracert www.tipsnfreeware.com
Notice in both the cases the router IP address is correctly listed as 192.168.2.1. In my case it is Edimax router.
In 99.9 % of cases this will work. If the above two methods doesn’t work. Than you have to reset your router by pressing the router’s reset button for ten seconds. This will change its IP address back to 192.168.1.1. You can also Google your router name and model number to get the correct IP address.
