Open any browser - there is no requirement for a specific brand such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, etc.
Now in the search field enter the correct IP, i.e., 192.168.0.1, and make sure you are not entering a misspelled IP i.e., 192.168.o.1
If the correct IP has been entered, you will be directed to a login page – enter your login credentials, i.e., the given username or password (these can be found on the router’s box, manual, and at the back of the router, etc.).
If your internet connection is not working at its full potential or generating enough speed, it could be due to server downtime or other issues at the internet service provider’s end, or it can be due to problems with the router.
If the issue is not with the provider, you should consider restarting your router manually – switch it off and then turn it back on.
If the issue persists, reboot the router from the settings page or carry out a factory reset – a reboot that restores your router to its initial out-of-the-box state.
Also, you may have come across many Wi-Fi connections with unique names, instead of conventional router names such as Netgear, Tenda, etc. This name change can be easily carried out on the settings page.
Remember, cybercriminals can use Wi-Fi connections to access all your vital information – login credentials, credit card information, social security numbers, etc.
You can control who accesses the Wi-Fi by putting a password or by allowing access to only specific devices.
This can be done from the control panel - simply change the old password that may have been breached, to halt unwanted traffic.
When you have successfully made changes to your router’s settings, carry out the following steps:
- Log-out from the settings page
- Restart the router
