Be aware that if your current IP address is 192.1680.1.1, it is actually false. The correct IP address you should be using is 192.168.0.1. A router will typically use 192.168.0.1 whereas additional devices and alternative hosts will have higher numbers.
Entering the IP Address of 192.168.0.1.1
If you'd like to access your wireless router's control panel, type http://192.168.0.1 into your browser's address bar, not 192.168.0.1.1. It will then ask you to enter your username and password.
Instead of 192.168.0.1.1, which is false, most current devices accept 192.168.0.1 as being fully authorised. Once you've accessed your router via the method above, you can access the admin panel. Many options are available to adjust, for both beginners and experts. These include MAC, DSL, WPS, Qos, WAN, LAN, WLAN settings, Proxy and many more. Whereas most users find the basic or default options suitable for their daily needs, they sometimes have to make adjustments.
If You Forget Your Username or Password
If you haven't logged in to your router for some time, it's easy to forget your username or password. In order to deal with this situation read our article "Recover your router password" and/or check our "default list of router username and passwords". If you prefer you can always reset your router back to its factory settings by holding down the reset button for at least ten seconds.
