If you have configured your router’s setting or modified them with some other protocols, you may find trouble in accessing the router’s settings page again. The internet may be working fine, but you can’t reach to router’s setting again. When you input the gateway IP address of the router, the browser doesn’t redirect you or shows that ‘the connection can be made’ or ‘the connection was reset’.
Few basic solutions could be
If you are trying the IP address shown on the label attached to the body of your router and the browser doesn’t respond positively, then the main reason could be that you may have changed the IP address in router configuration and have forgotten it.
To find out the IP address that your router is configured with, you can try the following steps:
This will open a command prompt.
It is recommended that you open a command prompt with administrator privileges.
Router’s login page will appear. Type in the username and password and you are done! This is one of the easiest solutions to track back your way into the router’ssettings page. In rare situations, you may find that this is also not working. The browser shows ‘Connection Timed Out’. There may be a problem with your network cable (if you are using one). Also, many routers don’t allow to access setup with a wireless connection, so you will need to have an Ethernet connection plugged in with both your computer and router and then try again.
If nothing works, hard resetting your device will do the job. Press the reset button (or push a pin through the hole) for about thirty seconds. Then disconnect the router from the power source and keep it as it is for another half minute. Connect the power and again repeat pushing the reset button for more 30 seconds. This will delete each and every configurationally changes or modification you made to the router settings and will bring it back to its original configuration with factory settings.
This method usually works but should be tried only if every other method fails to get you the desired result. So this was all to help your way back into router’s configuration access. Be patient with all the methods and carefully perform all the steps. You don’t want to wreck it more. Now, with reset or correct IP address found, you can access configuration on your router.
