How to access MikroTik router
Founded in 1996, MikroTik delivers routers and wireless services in assistance with ISP to its users. With a rugged design, your MikroTik router suites almost every condition: a home network or a business network. You must first log in to the admin panel of your router to present adjustments to some settings. A necessary step to form a secure and reliable network.
Login to your MikroTik Router
Step 1: Commence the process by first connecting to your MikroTik router's network either through an Ethernet cable or its Wi-Fi. When the Wi-Fi password is not known, set up a wired connection to join instantly.
Step 2: Working any of the available applications such as Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer, navigate to the sign-in user interface by typing the default IPs in the address bar.
- a) 168.88.1
- b) 168.18.1
- c) 168.0.254
If these don't work, then look below the router for your default IP.
Step 3: When the default gateway leads you to the sign-in page, specify the default username and password to access the admin panel of your router.
Username: admin/rfnet/ (keep it empty)
Password: admin/blank/ (keep it empty)
Now, make changes in the settings as needed.
Note: Remember to record previously installed settings and default login credentials before changing them.
What to do if your router stops working after changing configuration
If you wish to replace the factory settings to your router, then a primary way to perform this is through a log in to the admin panel and use previously copied values to change the settings. Alternatively, opt the 30 seconds reset mechanism. With MikroTik router turned on, press and hold the button at the base of your router. Now, switch off and on to finish the process.
Your link might end but, now you can reconnect quickly with the default login credentials.
When the company produced data are lost somehow, then you must look for alternate ways to get in touch with the admin panel. Your router's name and model can be fruitful as well. Contact the support team of the brand as they will offer the default essentials. You can also look underneath your MikroTik router with a printed tag for details.
The blazing-fast data rate and secure network are what must be every user's priority. Hence, update the username and passkey once in a while to offer better security. When needed, seek help from any individual with knowledge.
