Everyone is working to make network equipment more secure now that everyone knows the router vulnerabilities. Due to security flaws in the router, there is a greater risk of data fraud when you use your PC or mobile phone to access the Internet. To stop such assaults, you must first change the router’s IP address.
Every network device, as you are aware, has an address with which it can communicate, known as an IP address. All routers with a default IP address make them an easy target for hackers because they are visible. You will discover how to modify the IP address of your Netgear router today. Router Guru will outline a series of actions to complete the assignment. You won’t run into any problems if you follow the instructions in order.
Understanding IP addresses for routers
Private and public IP addresses are given to routers. A private IP address is used for communication within local area networks. The other, often known as a public IP address, connect to open networks like the global Internet.
Your home or business router typically gets its public IP address from an Internet service provider (ISP). On the other hand, the network administrator manages the distribution of private IP addresses.
The default IP address listed in the router’s literature is most likely what your router will use if you’ve never changed it, especially if you recently bought a new make and model.
How To Locate Default Netgear IP Address?
The IP address of your NETGEAR router is either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 by default. Your router automatically retrieves the IP address for your computer or mobile device. You must set up your device to get the IP address if your computer or mobile device has a static IP address.
To view the IP address of your router:
- Open a web browser from a computer or wireless device linked to your router’s network.
- Fill complete the address box on your web browser with http://routerlogin.net.
- The login screen appears.
- The username and password for the router.
- Administer is the user name. Password is the standard password. Both the user name and the password must match exactly.
- Displayed is the BASIC Home page.
- Choose ADVANCED.
- Under Router Information, you can see your router’s IP address.
If, after entering the correct IP address into your web browser’s address bar, you can still not access your router’s interface.
Windows method for locating the NetGear router login IP address
For whatever reason, you might require your IP address. Be aware that using the command prompt or the settings on your Windows device will allow you to find it quickly. The steps are as follows:
- Router Configuration through Command Prompt
- Enter cmd or the Command Prompt into the search bar to find it.
- Type ipconfig into the Command Prompt to see information about your IP settings. The IP address is the number that appears next to Default Gateway.
From Windows 10’s settings
- Select Settings by clicking the Start button.
- On your computer, select Internet & Network.
- In the left menu pane, choose Ethernet for wired connections, then choose your network connection. Next to your IPv4 Address will be displayed is your IP address.
- Choose Advanced Options after WiFi for wireless connections in the left menu window. Next to your IPv4 Address will be displayed is your IP address.
Microsoft Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 router settings
- Click the network connection icon in the system tray and choose Open Network and Sharing Center.
- Double-click Local Area Connection and select Details for wired connections. Next to your IPv4 Address will be displayed is your IP address.
- Double-click Wireless Network Connection (Network Name) and select Details for wireless connections. Next to your IPv4 Address will be displayed is your IP address.
Find the IP Address In Mac OS X
You can use the command prompt or the settings on a Mac device to find your IP address. The steps are as follows:
Mac OS 10.4 or 10.3
- Choose Location and then Network Preferences from the Apple menu.
- Next to Show in the Network Preferences box, click Network Status. Your IP address and network status will be shown.
- After Mac OS X 10.5
- Go to System Preferences from the Apple menu. Select Network in System Preferences‘ View menu.
- Click a network port in the Network Preferences box (Ethernet, AirPort, WiFi). If you’re connected, your IP address will be listed under Status.
Problems Changing the IP Address on a Netgear Router
- Users occasionally encounter configuration issues that prevent them from using WiFi to access the router settings. In this situation, try connecting the router to the PC using an Ethernet wire. It should effortlessly open the router’s setup.
- If changing the Netgear default, IP address is giving you trouble, consider switching the Connection mode from Dynamic to Static. You won’t be able to change the dynamic IP address because the ISP assigned it. To modify the IP address, you must switch the connection mode from dynamic to static on the Advanced page. If it still doesn’t function even after changing the mode, get in touch with your internet service provider and ask them to provide you with a static address.
- If the browser does not navigate to the new Address after changing the Address, restart the router two or three times to make the changes effective. Alternately, try updating the router’s firmware by selecting Update from the Advanced menu.
- Look on the back of your router for the username and password if you cannot get in using the default credentials. Netgear often prints out these details there. You might need to reset the router to its factory settings if this doesn’t work. Your router will reset itself to the default settings if you press the reset button on the back of the device for a time. Remember that starting over after this step will mean losing your network configurations.
