It is very important to know your default IP address, which generally is your router’s LAN address. You also need this IP address to get access to your router’s configuration page. Generally, different router models have a different default IP address for accessing router configuration page.
But, if you do not know that default IP address you can use your router’s LAN address to access it. I will discuss how you can find this default gateway of your network for different computer operating systems.
You can make use of this method depending on your Operating System, which I have discussed on all three majorly used OS, i.n Windows, macOS, Linux. You can use these methods on any of the following router Brands.
You can also view the default list of username, the password for respective brands and use them as per your device's model number. If the given set of default credentials does not work, hard reset your router by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds and then try again.
C:\Documents and Settings\administrator>ipconfig | findstr /i "Gateway
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
In above example, 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of your router.
joe$ ip route | grep default
default via 192.168.1.1 dev eth0 proto static
In above example, 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of your network.
joe$ netstat -nr | grep default
default 192.168.1.1 UGSc 50 46 en1
In the above-given example, 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of your network.
