✔ Best Answer
when connected to your router by wifi or cable

you can try the following:

open cmd.exe & type ipconfig
look for default gateway & copy+paste(highlight it with the mouse & hit enter) 192.168.xxx.xxx into your browser

usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.101 or 192.168.178.1

these are local ip adresses, so no worries here if they match yours :)

unless you changed the username & password, it will either be written on the router or it can be a standard combination i.e. username/password= admin/admin, admin/ , [brandname]/admin.


also i would still remove the email adress so you do not get spammed, obscuring is a great idea, but any human with bad intentions can still misuse it

How do you go to your router page and exactly what happens when you try?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What is Brand of the Router, Happens when you put one of the IP addresses suggested by hidde663 , Are you able to login to the Router Page and pass the username and Password screen.

Mostly it seems that someone with whom you shared the wifi password has changed the default username and password.

Make sure you're using the right IP. Use ipconfig or a similar command to find out your Gateway address, and use that IP to access your router's page.

Make sure you're connected directly. Some routers can be configured to not allow administration over Wi-Fi, or any other link not directly connected to the router. So, make sure your connection is via a cable run directly from your computer to the router with nothing else in between. Also, disable Wi-Fi on your computer to ensure that your machine is actually using the hard-line connection to reach the router.

Make sure you can reach the router. Use ping to verify connectivity to the IP address, and tracert to confirm there's nothing between you and the router.

Make sure you're using the right protocol. Some routers can be configured to only permit administration over HTTPS, and may not have an appropriate HTTP->HTTPS redirect in place. So, if http://router-ip/ doesn't work, try https://router-ip/.

Try a different browser. Some routers don't play nice with all browsers or browser extensions. The most universally-compatible is usually IE.

RTFM Just to make sure you didn't miss something obvious, or maybe something not-so-obvious which is specific to your router model.

Factory Reset If all else fails, just push the little red button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Bear in mind that this will of course erase any custom configuration you've done to the router, including administrator passwords and IP ranges.
