Accessing a router login screen is actually a pretty easy thing to do. It is important to note that you don't have to be connected to the internet to access your router's console. You will need to know what your particular router's IP address is and follow these steps:
Connect router cable to your computer. You can also use a wireless network. In this case, double-check the device that you wish to work on is connected to the wi-fi. Pro Tip - It's a good idea to use a wired connection while making any changes. This avoids the risk of suddenly being logged off when you click the Save button.
Open your chosen web browser and type 192.168.11.1 in the address bar. 192.168.11.1 is used as a gateway login address. You can also enter 192.168.100.1 or 188.8.131.52 into the address bar as an alternative if 192.168.11.1 doesn’t work for you. If the address fails, you'll need to grab your router manual. The IP listed as ‘Default Gateway’ is the correct one.
It's time to enter the default username and password of your router by accessing the admin panel. You can try the login credentials given below:
The default values for admin are:

If you are facing one or more problems in regards to logging into your router here is a list of actions we recommend:
Check if the Ethernet Cable is properly plugged between your router and the device you are using to connect to your router's administrative console.
Check to see if you have entered the right IP address. It might just be a spelling mistake on your part. Be sure to check whether or not every single number is in the right place. Sometimes the autocomplete feature is misleading; don't rely on it.
If nothing else works, completely resetting your router would be your best bet. When you reboot your router, you revert it to its factory settings, which means that everything should be okay once you turn it back on. Keep in mind that pressing the reset (reboot) button on your router will wipe all of the changes that you may have done to your router's configuration settings. This is why you should always keep a backup of your router's settings.
Also, every once in a while, you should check if there are any new router updates available for download. If you see that there is a new router update (upgrade) available for download, don't waste any time and download it right away!
And if you are still having problems with your router, then you should definitely give your Internet Service Provider (ISP) a call. Their customer support service should provide you all the answers that you need to resolve the issue. With their help, you might be able to fix the problem from the comfort of your home.
