No matter whether you use the internet at home or the office, you most likely have a wireless router. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has set it up already. Even an up-and-running device may require some tuning up from time to time, though. That is why it’s crucial you know how you can access the admin menu of your 192.168.1.128 router and what you can do in there.
The first step is to connect your internet-capable device to the router’s network. You can go through the process on your phone, but a laptop or PC might be easier. Once you’ve done that, open your internet browser of choice. Everything from Microsoft Edge to Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari will do the trick. Write 192.168.1.128 in the address bar and hit enter. See how easy it is? You will find yourself on the start page of your wireless router’s admin panel.
Some devices will get you straight away to the menu. Most routers will require a username and password first, though. If that is the case with your 192.168.1.128 router, just go to the physical device and look at the label on the side. There you will find the default username and password. Use them and enter the admin panel.
There is no need to worry. The fact that the manufacturer’s login details don’t get the job done means someone has changed them. It doesn’t lock you up permanently from your 192.168.1.128 router. You can do two things:

You will find yourself looking and menus and submenus with a lot of intimidating names. Configuring your 192.168.1.128 device doesn’t require tech expertise, though. Start by setting up a username and a password for the router. The menu you can do should be somewhere around the top of the page. Choose something that you can remember, but is still complex enough to guarantee no one else can gain unauthorized access to your device. Save the changes.
192.168.1.128 is your router’s default local Internet Protocol (IP) address. It is the core of your home or office wireless internet network. Each device you connect to your router gets its local IP based on it. For example, if you first connect your laptop, it will get the 192.168.1.129 IP. The next device, your phone, for instance, will be 192.168.1.130 and so on. Most manufacturers assign only one or two default local IPs like 192.168.1.128 to all devices they ship. You can change your router’s gateway IP to another sequence to enhance your network’s security. The two things you need to remember are:
