What should you do if you Forgot your IP address Username and Password?
Whenever you purchase a new router or modem, you will get a default login username and password. But if someone has changed it or if you have forgotten your username or password you need to reset your router to factory default settings.
But always keep in mind that, if you reset your router, it will turn to factory defaults and you will lose all your settings.
Step 1: First of all you need to turn off the router.
Step 2: Now you have to press and hold the reset button on the rear panel but to do that you need a pointed pin, a needle or compass and then turn on the router. But do not release the reset button and you have to keep on holding the button for around 5- 10 seconds after turning on your router.
Step 3: Now you can release the button and wait for the device to reboot.
Step 4: Now you can connect your computer to your router through a network cable or by using Wi-Fi connection.
Note some important points:
- Always make sure that your router is powered on before it restarts completely.
- Try with your default IP address and enter your default username and password as “admin”.
- Make sure that the IP address of your computer is within the same subnet of your router device which means the subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway should be same with the IP address of your router.
How to Change IP address of your Router:
