Not Working? Here is the Solution

This is the general question I’m frequently getting from my YouTube channel subscribers, who can’t access the router admin page. Their requirement is evident because the only way to set up the wireless router is by retrieving the login page using the IP address

Do you know you can resolve this not working issue by following some steps I will list soon?

However, following the steps one by one is suggested to troubleshoot and find the culprit. Once you see why is not an opening problem, we can easily modify the same setting whenever we need to change the security or some other configurations of the wireless router. You can apply the exact steps to any router to find the default gateway IP address that finally solves a connection problem

What does the IP address usually mean?

See, in the Internet space, we have a couple of IP address formats known as Public and Private IP addresses. The Public IP address is the one that points out your exact location, and the Private IP address is reserved for specific functions. not working

So, the,, and all fall under the private IP address space. Not only the three, but there are many, and they are assigned for different operations. Regarding the topic, all the IP mentioned above addresses are reserved by certain router manufacturers, such as Netgear reserves, TP-Link reserves, etc.

When you have a problem like not opening, the first step is to check whether the same IP address is from the same manufacturer. If yes, then OK; read how to quickly solve a connection problem to in 4 simple methods.

Here are the 4 simple steps to resolve if you can’t access the wireless router admin page to change the router’s settings.

1. Look for the correct Router Login IP address

I know you are like,

“Hey, stop! Are we trying to login to the router without know the IP address?”

I understand. However, we are troubleshooting the issue here. So, please verify the router’s correct IP address by looking behind the label or checking the instruction guide within the retail box.

If you find none, do a simple Google search with the manufacturer name followed by the model number. Example: Netgear N150 router IP address.

2. Find IP through Command Prompt

This is a bit technical thing. I suggest you watch the video embedded below this article to know how to accurately find the router login IP address from the Command Prompt. I try my best to describe it in a text format.

First, open the Run dialogue box, then type ‘ncpa.cpl.’ This will get you the Network and Sharing Center window. Here, open the IPv4 properties of the active internet connection and lock the IP address to ‘Obtain automatically.’

Note: Back up the ISP IP details before opting for the above selection. In some cases, you can only browse the Internet with the ISP-provided IP addresses.

What this will do is, now, the computer will fetch the default gateway IP address from the router itself, which in our case is or whatever the manufacturer is.

Now close everything, open Command Prompt, and type ‘ipconfig/all.’ When you run this command, you will see the default gateway IP of the router, and you can use the same to enter the router Wi-Fi router setup page on your Android phone or computer. This will mostly solve the not working issue. If this still says that you can’t reach the site when you enter 192.168.l.l, move on to the next one.

3. Uninstall your Security Software if the page isn’t working

If you fail the steps mentioned above, your antivirus is the culprit. I had a bad experience with Kaspersky Internet Security. After struggling for hours, I finally knew that my security software was blocking me from accessing the private IP address or routerlogin.net (for Netgear).

So, instead of turning it off for a while, remove or uninstall it entirely, configure your router settings using the default router login IP, and then reinstall your security software. It works for me, and I hope you can solve a connection problem to with this tip.
