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.
