Check if the router has an internet connection if it is connected to your PC or laptop or to other devices via ethernet or WiFi. In order to see if you are connected to the internet, make sure that all the lights are on and are green: Power, Internet, WiFi, and Ethernet.
If the router is connected to any device from the above, make sure to restart your device. In order to restart/reboot, first, unplug the router or modem and then replug them, after one minute, doing so one by one. Give the devices a couple of minutes, and then check again for connection.
- Antivirus or firewall
If your devices are protected by an antivirus solution or a firewall, your router might not properly connect because of this. Make sure you disable the firewall or antivirus or add an exception for the router, to allow the router to connect to the internet.
If your router is on and you are connected to the internet, connect to the router motherboard typing the IP address in the address bar of your browser. The address you need to type is 192.168.1.1.
If all the steps above don’t work, you can always reset the router to the initial settings, pressing the reset button. If there is not reset button, only a hole, press it with a sharp object.
192.168.1.1 IP Address And How To Use It
Are you sure you are using your router to its full potential? If you are using the internet every day, then probably you are familiar with the 192.168.1.1 address.
We will explain below what this numerical selection is about.
This is the address of the router – or the IP. This means that all devices connected to the internet are allocated a unique IP address for identification and differentiation in the digital world. It is exactly like a digital PO box, just like a telephone number or an address which you need to give in order to be able to receive and send messages in the digital world. IP stands for Internet Protocol.
Usually, in a home network (what you are using), the router will allocate the Internet Protocol address or IP address to every single device you are using. This means your PC, tablet, laptop, and router will be assigned an IP address.
There is a set of numerical selections which are assigned to private networks; this is available for home networks, LAN or local area connections, WAN or wireless area networks. This is also assigned to business networks.
These particular numerical selections for IP private addresses cannot be allocated to internet sites – which are websites with free access.
These specific ranges of IP addresses are
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
All Internet Protocol addresses have to contain a set of 4 digits which range between the numbers 0 and 255.
The IP address has two sections – the part which describes the Network ID (the first three sets of digits, and the part which is the Device ID. So, for instance, in the IP address 192.168.1.20, 192.168.1 represents the Network ID. The 20 in the IP address represents the Device ID.
If the network contains a number of devices connected to the internet, all devices will share the first three sets of numbers in the IP address, and only the last set of numbers will differ, so as each device will have its own address and its own identity.
The DHCP or the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol configuration of the router makes this possible – the assignation of a personalized IP for each of the devices connected to the network. The DHCP configuration automatically assigns these IP addresses.
The router also has an IP address assigned, as well as the network.
The IP addresses and their shared set of numeric characters are visible for users outside their network – in a public address. The router is the device which performs the translation of the private address to that particular public address visible to devices and users outside the network. Also, the router communicates this public address to external networks and communicates back to the devices within the network.
This conversion is called the NAT – or the Network Address Translation.
The IP address for home networks 192.168.1.1 is used by routers such as TP-Link, Linksys, Asus, D-link. The 192.168.1.1 is assigned by convention by most routers manufacturers, and as such, it was set as the default gateway and access point. This address is used by most (if not all) devices of a private network. This golden standard has an advantage – all people remember it is easier to access the troubleshooting section by typing 192.168.1.1 into their address bar or URL bar on their browser.
Besides the router manufacturers already mentioned, this IP address is used for private networks by Huawei, Netgear, Tp-Link, SMC Networks, Asus, Cisco, Linksys, Dell, D-link, and Tenda.
The IP address is mentioned on all routers.
In order to configure and get connected, check these four points:
- Make sure you are connected to the Internet - check if there is an available internet connection if the connection is working or not; you can perform this check by connecting to the ISP cable/ethernet, or directly connecting it to a PC or a laptop;
- Take the router out of the box; the router usually comes with a manual that will highlight the access point or default gateway, as well as your credentials – your username and your password. For proper functioning, make sure you place the router on a higher shelf, centered.
- Connect your router to power. When you are configuring your router, this can take some time. When your router is booted and up and running, it should have a green light; this will all be specified in the router’s manual.
- Finally, connect the router to the Internet. This means to connect an ISP gateway cable, an ethernet cable, a broadband cable, or a DSL modem to the internet port of the router. This Internet port should have a different color from the other ports, for easy identification.
