If you are trying to reach your router’s dashboard via 192.168.1.1, we suggest you take the following steps:
Open the browser
- Enter 192.168.1.1
- Enter your ID and Password – Usually available beneath the router, in its manual or on the box it came in
- Reach the settings and configuration page
Remember, if your login credentials are not correct, you cannot reach the router’s control panel.
If you're not receiving the optimal speed assigned by your service provider, and the issue is not at their end, the chances are that your router is acting up.
One quick fix is to turn it off and turn it on again, but if that does not work, protocol dictates that you should reset your router. Once you are on the settings page you are given the option of rebooting the router or carrying out a complete factory-rest.
You may also use the settings page to add a new password, change an old password or assign a new name to your router. For instance, you can change the username from Asus or Netgear to your family name, brand name, etc.
Your neighbors might be using your internet because you have not restricted access with a password, or your current password has been breached.
Not only can you change the password from the dedicated dashboard, but you can also view user activity to see who else is using your network.
