192.168.0.1 is quite a popular number because, in majority cases, it is assigned by many router manufacturers as their default IP address.
For years router manufacturers have been using 192.168.0.1, and other similar IP addresses as their default gateway - as these addresses have been put aside by the Internet Assigned Number Authority for various reasons.
However, while accessing their router’s control panel, sometimes users end up entering the wrong IP address, instead of 192.168.0.1 they put in 192.168.0.l.
Since the digit “1” and lower-case “l” look quite similar at first glance, people end up entering 192.168.0.l instead of the correct IP.
Moreover, auto-correct is equally to blame, as the provided suggestions also lead users to enter the wrong IP address - 192.168.0.l.
Some commonly misspelled IP entries, and their corrections:
Incorrect: 192.168.0.l login
Correct: 192.168.0.1 login
Typically, users visit the router’s settings page to get an overview of their internet usage, to change password, reset the router, and alter other configuration settings.
The good news is that even if you are not well versed with tech, you can still change your router’s settings, as the entire process is quite user-friendly.
However, first, you must ensure that you have entered 192.168.0.1 and not 192.168.0.l.
Read below to know more about what can be done within a router’s control panel.
Gaining access to your router via 192.168.0.1 is quite simple; first and foremost open any browser you use – Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, etc.
Once opened, enter 192.168.0.1 and press Enter to be led to the login page. At the login page, enter your assigned login credentials, which are generally available on the back of the router, the router’s box or the manual.
You will be directed to the main dashboard from where you can have a comprehensive view of your internet usage, and from here, you can edit the settings.
Sometimes the internet slows down, and you don’t receive the speed you paid for, which can be because:
- There is a problem with the service provider
- There is a problem with your router
Once sure that the problem is not from the provider's end, your second guess is that your router is acting up, and that can be remedied by a simple restart by switching it off and then turning it back on.
However, if the problem persists, you may need to reboot or hard reset the router from the control panel. If that doesn’t fix the problem either, the final option is to do a factory reset from the settings page.
Additionally, you may use the settings page for adding a new password or changing an old password to strengthen security and limit unwelcomed router usage.
Moreover, you can also change the assigned router’s name – instead of d-Link, Actiontek, etc. you can use your own unique chosen name.
Once all is set and done, close the dashboard and restart your router.
Many brands of routers come assigned with 192.168.0.1 as their default IP address to access the setting page. These routers include but are not limited to
If your router also has to be accessed via 192.168.0.1, please ensure you are entering a 1 and not l to avoid misspelled IP – and fix your device’s settings.
