Open up a command prompt or at the command prompt window, type ipconfig at the prompt itself and press Enter. Scroll to the top of the window until you see a setting for Default Gateway under Wi-Fi. That's your router, and the number next to it is your router's IP address. This is either the default username and password for your router, or a unique username and password that you may have created when you set up the router.
How to Access a Router as an Administrator
Follow these steps to connect to your router as admin:
Verify that your computer is connected to the router, via an Ethernet cable or wireless connection.
Make sure you know the IP address of the router. Most routers are manufactured to use a default address like 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.2.1.
If those don't work and you're not sure what your specific router's default IP address is, or it's not the default address anymore because you've changed it, see our How to Find Your Default Gateway IP Address guide.
Open a web browser like Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox, and request a connection to the router using its IP address.
For example, type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar to connect to a router that has 192.168.1.1 has its IP address.
Enter the administrative login information to authenticate and access the admin settings.
Routers are shipped with default usernames and passwords. This is usually the word admin but might be different for your router (some might not even have a password or might not use a username).
