Find Your Router's IP Address To Access The Web Portal (GUI)
In order to change network settings for your router, you need to access the router’s web portal (or GUI). To do that, you’ll need to find out the web portal address.
The most common router IP address is 192.168.1.1. It doesn’t hurt to try that first.
If that didn’t work, you need to do some sleuthing to find the address.
Make sure you are connected to the router/network. We recommend using an ethernet cable, but if that’s not an option, WiFi is acceptable.
On a Mac:
System Preferences -> Network -> WiFi or Ethernet in the left pane -> Advanced -> TCP/IP
The Router IP address is listed below IPv4 address and Subnet Mask.
Type this address into a web browser
Skip down to the login instructions below
On a PC:
We will use the command prompt to find the router (gateway) IP address. Make sure you are connected to the router/network with an ethernet cable or WiFi.
Click Start (Windows icon) bottom left
Type cmd into the search box. Click to open Command Prompt
Press enter on the keyboard
The IP address is listed next to Default Gateway
Type this address into a web browser and follow the login instructions below
Login to the router web portal (GUI):
Your login credentials depend on which router you have. You can often look up the default username and password by typing in the router model number into Google.
Here are a few common logins:
Comcast Residential Gateway:
password: admin or password
Comcast Business Gateway:
password: admin OR password OR 1234
