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.
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.
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.
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:
You can find your Router’sRouter’s default IP address here. Four integers separated by full stops make up the average IP address (period marks). For example, an IP address originating from a home network will begin with 192.168. IP addresses for routers are often 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Depending on your device or computer, the process for locating your Router’s IP address may differ. The procedures below will assist you in finding your IP address on your corresponding program.
This method is much easier than it appears. To make it easier, here are some diagrammed instructions to find your Router’s IP address on Windows:
Here’s how to get your Router’s IP address if you prefer to use the Control Panel:
There are two ways to find your Router’s IP address on a Mac. First, you can also use the Terminal program to search the default IP address by typing netstat -nr|grep default and pressing Enter. Then, follow the steps outlined below.
These are the procedures you’ll need to find your IP address on Chrome OS devices, such as Chromebooks.
