A router is basically a splitter of an Ethernet cable. Routers are the most used to connect several computers to the Internet through the same connection. They can also be used to configure a local network, with or without an Internet connection. Each router comes with some basic software, called firmware, that controls the router’s configuration. Access to this software is like access to a web page. You need to know your router address and login credentials.
Login to Router using Internet Explorer
- Open Internet Explorer
- Type “http: //”, then the router’s IP address. Linksys and 3Com routers use “192.168.1.1” as the IP address. D-Link and Netgear routers use “192.168.0.1” as the IP address. Microsoft Broadband routers use ” 192.168.2.1″ as the IP address. Check the router manual if none of these is your address.
- Press the “Enter” button.
- Type “admin” in the Username box and “admin” in the password box if you use a 3Com, Linksys or Microsoft Broadband router. For Netgear routers, use “password” as the password and for D-Link, leave the password box blank. Check the router manual if necessary to find 192.168.l.l default login credentials.
