Login to a Cisco Router And Access The Setup Page:

The Cisco router web interface is known as the control panel for your router. It's where all the settings are stored and changed. To turn changes to your network you will have to login to a Cisco router.

Requirements to Access the Cisco Web Interface

Getting into the Cisco web interface is pretty straightforward and all you'll need is:

  • Cisco router
  • Enter to the network, Either through LAN-cable or through Wi-Fi
  • A web browser, which you clearly have.

Following are the instructions to login to a Cisco router interface for configuration and diagnostics.

Confirm that You are Connected to Your Cisco Router

To allow you to reach the setup pages of your Cisco router, you will have to be connected to its network.

So launched by connecting to the network, whether by WiFi or by ethernet cable.

Tip: If you don't know the WiFi password for your Cisco router, you can always connect to it with an ethernet cable, which won't require a password.

Open Your Web Browser and Navigate to

Go to your browser and enter the router's IP address into the address field.  Mostly used IP for Cisco routers is:  In case this IP address doesn't work, you may find the default Cisco IP address list for your specific model.

Note: Considering  you're already connected to your Cisco router, you can also use to fastly find the IP. It is the "Router Private IP"-value.

Type the Username and Password for your Cisco Router

In the username and password section, type your current username and password and press enter / sign in.

Default Login Credentials for Cisco

If you're not sure about the username/password you can look at the  default Cisco credentials to see what the defaults are, and how to reset them.

- The credentials can also be printed on the mark on the back of your router.

How to Configure Your Cisco Router?

When you have logged in to the Cisco admin interface you should be able to change any settings that are available.

Look out once you configure your router so that you don't interrupt the network.

Tip: write down your current settings before changing anything so that you can revert it in case of trouble

What in Case My Cisco Router or Network Stops Working After a Configuration Change

In case you make mistakes with some changes that interrupt your Cisco home network, you can always go back to zero by using the generic 30 30 30 hard reset trick.

This is usually the last resort, and in case you still have access to the Cisco interface you can always login to try and get back the settings first (This of course suppose you wrote down the original value before changing it).

I hope after reading this you got your answer on how to login to a Cisco router and access the setup page.
