Connect to Home Router as an Administrator:

To connect to your Home Router as an administrator, you must know the administrative user's password and username. 

Follow the steps below to connect to Home Router as an administrator:

Note: These steps work for nearly any router and modem, and can be accomplished through any modern web browser, on both desktop and mobile devices.

  • Check that your computer is connected to the router using either an Ethernet cable or a wireless connection.
  • Note: If you're trying to access a router outside of your network you need to enable what's usually called Remote Administration. You will also need to know the router's external IP to make this work so that you can type that address into the browser. 
  • Identify the IP address of the router. Many routers are manufactured to use a default address such as,,, or
  • Visit a web browser such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox and request a connection to the router using its IP address. Such as enter in the address box to connect to a router that has as its IP address.
  • Type the administrative login information to authenticate and access the admin settings.

What If I Can't Access My Router?

While trying the username and password on the router, the browser shows an error message, might be your computer is not connected to the correct router. Or, the username and password combination might be not correct.

If you're sure that you enter the correct IP address to access the router, try the following process:

  • Restart the router.
  • Visit a web browser for example Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox, and request a connection to the router using its IP address.
  • Temporarily disable the firewall.
  • Reset your router to factory defaults.

Note: This restores the router to its default condition with the IP address, username, and password that it was shipped with.

Administer a Router Over Wi-Fi

Establishing a router for the first time is best to use a wired connection so that the connection isn't dropped if the security or wireless settings are changed in the process.

While you access a router over Wi-Fi, keep the computer near to the router, in the same room if necessary, to avoid connection drops due to interference or weak wireless signals.
