Can connect to internet but can’t connect router through 192.168.1.1?

The most common three problems that one may experience are as follows:

1. The default IP address is not 192.168.1.1 and in order to obtain the proper IP address, go to the manufacturer’s website and find it. Alternatively, you can also find the details within the documents that were provided to you at the time of the purchase. You may not be entering the correct IP for the router, Try 192.168.2.1.

2. The router is at fault and the problem might lie with the hardware itself. If this is the problem then you will probably have to take it to the manufacturer for repairing or replacement.

3. There is an error in the configuration settings that you need to figure out and correct. You will find many step by step guides on how to troubleshoot your router’s configuration settings online.

Some routers uses another port to connect to the web interface, e.g. port 88.

192.168.1.1

192.168.1.1 is an IP address used as a default Internet Protocol address set by many manufacturers for routers at factory. The 192.168.1.1 IP address belongs to the range of addresses earmarked for private use. As per Internet Assigned numbers authority 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.255.255 is a block of IP addresses designed for private use.

However, there can be problems outside the network. These problems can be described as collisions, and they occur when two devices that belong to the same network use only one IP address. These are the situations when most people experience network problems.

Sometimes it is even better not to spend your time and nerves on these things, especially if you do not know much about computers.However, you can do something to prevent problems. Keep in mind that only one device in your home or office network can use 192.168.1.1.

If this IP address is opened then the webpage asks for the router.s user ID as well as password. Through this you can change the setting of the device including its routing behavior and its security aspects. Another great thing about IP addresses like 192.168.1.1 is that they can be repeatedly used. This means that you can use 192.168.1.1 over and over.

Through troubleshooting you can determine problems in the router set up and resolve the same. The limitation of this IP is that devices cannot be configured using the internet. In case you forget the password and are not able to retrieve it then you can opt for the reset button and after this you can use a different username as well as password combination.
