How to Find Your Router’s IP Address?

Last Updated: October 6, 2021

You’ll need to know your Router’s IP address if you wish to make modifications to it. For example, you could want to alter the network name, set a new Wi-Fi password, or USE a different channel to improve your internet speed. These features are available through your Router’sRouter’s login page, but you’ll need to know how to find your Router’s IP address to get there.

What is an IP Address?

A network’s devices are identified by their IP addresses, a unique string of digits. It’s similar to a mailing address in that it tells the mailman where to deliver your things. To go online, you’ll need an IP address. It connects and exchanges information between the transmitter and receiver devices. Without it, the two devices will have no idea where to send or retrieve data.

Types of IP Addresses:

There are two types of IP addresses: public and private. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP), such as AT&T or Comcast, assigns you a public IP address. On the other hand, a personal IP address is what permits all of your devices on your private network to connect. Devices with a private IP address must connect to a public IP address, usually via a modem, linked to the outside world.

Static and dynamic IP addresses are both possible. A static IP address remains constant over time, but an active IP address fluctuates. Your RouterRouter will most likely convert a (largely) static public IP address to a dynamic private IP address from your modem. This allows you to purchase additional devices and join them to your Wi-Fi network without assigning each one a unique IP address.

What is the difference between ‘router IP’ and ‘default gateway IP’?

Your Router’s IP address acts as a gateway between your devices and the rest of the internet, which is why it’s also known as a “default gateway IP address.” By default, all devices on the same network send their requests to the RouterRouter. However, it will be named differently on different devices.

Your Router’sRouter’s IP address will be stored under ‘router’ on Windows PCs and ‘default gateway’ on iOS devices. Once you’ve discovered your Router’sRouter’s default IP, type it into the address bar of your web browser to access the Router’sRouter’s web interface. Here’s how to do it:
