What is

We here at make sure that people around the world are facing no problem in logging in to their routers. We explain all the necessary steps in logging in to the routers and finding the IP addresses so that people can log in to their routers. We also help in troubleshooting all the steps required in setting up a router and answer all the FAQ’s related to the router problems around the clock.

The most frequently asked question is, “How do I log in to my router?” Logging in on your Router can be somewhat of a hassle as not everybody is a tech-savvy person. There may be numerous reasons as to why you might not be able to login into your router, IP address issues being the most common ones. By default, the IP address of the routers is either provided or you have to search for it yourself.

Most of the time, the gadget or computer that you’re using will pick up the router’s IP address itself, but if the device is using a static IP address, then you will have to configure the IP address by yourself to retrieve it in order to use your internet. Here at, we help you configure every router with the least amount of hassle and we will explain each step to configure your router so that you can log in into your router and start using it without any trouble while using it to its maximum potential.

Starting with your Netgear

Netgear is one of the foremost and well-known companies in making the best quality routers in the market be it for home, business use or streaming and gaming. Netgear Routers usually have two default login IP addresses, which are or and different routers might pick up either of these two IP addresses. But Netgear went one step further and made it very easy for people to use their routers and log in to them. They now ship their routers configured to use either or instead of the IP addresses previously mentioned. This makes it easier for its users to remember the login URL’s rather than the IP addresses. Once you enter either of the URL’s, the device will automatically take you to the router login page where you have to put in your username and password. The username is “admin” and the default password is “password”. It can be changed later if needed.

Just a tip – Never unplug your router from the power supply while it is upgrading or when you are making changes.
