How to access CALIX router
Calix routers are one of the next-generation service platforms in providing the information, communication and several other features. An uncommon IP and a unique combination of username/password help to achieve the services. You can look into the user manual for this information if available with you or below is a brief guide to look upon.
Steps to the login of CALIX router to access setup
If a Calix router web page has to be accessed, then, you must have an Internet connection on your computer system and also a web browser installed in it.
Following the below process will now guide you to the login interface of your router.
- Using your router’s services, make an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi connection to your computer to access the Internet.
- Navigate to 192.168.1.1 IP address using any web browser on your system.
In the web browser’s address bar, state the IP address and click Enter key. This is the default IP address of a CALIX router is 192.168.1.1 but if this doesn't work for you then look for a correct IP at your router’s backside.
- In the Calix router login web page specify the username/password.
State the Username and Password available with you in the specified fields or try the most commonly used defaults if you are a first time user.
The default username is admin with the password as blank.
- The web page for the router control panel will open with all the default settings are stored and can be adjusted according to the requirements.
Recommendation: The default settings must be noted by a user before changing them for future usage.
What to do if your router stops working after changing configuration
CALIX router still not working
If even after trying all the above login process you still cannot access the router’s user interface, then, the login credentials used might be incorrect. You can try to use the defaults in that case and if the problem persists, then reset the router.
A reset button is available on the router that needs to be pressed and hold for 30 seconds which will set the router settings to the defaults.
But make sure that the network connection is not lost while configuring the router.
In general, the reset option must be the final resort but if you can log in to the router admin interface, then you must revert the previously saved settings. You can also seek some expert advice if needed.
