Did you know that problems like slow network, changing password of your network and other modifications can be handled through your computer? All you have to do is have access to internet and have a laptop/computer device to do so. Cisco routers are pretty easy to use and configure. They allow you to make changes in them through their control panel. The Cisco router’s control panel is available at a certain IP address that we will be mentioning in the following steps.
Chances are, you already have everything you need to access your Cisco router:
In order to make changes to your Cisco Router, first you will have to connect it to the internet. For this, turn on your Cisco Router and connect to the desired device. If your network is not connecting to the device, use the Ethernet cable for it. Ethernet cable gives a stable and direct access to the internet.
Launch your favourite browser and type 192.168.1.1 in your address bar. This will take you to the login page. There are other default IP addresses if the above mentioned one doesn’t work
192.168.1.1 is the most common default IP address for Cisco routers. However, if that doesn’t work, there are some other possible IP addresses. Also, try using:
if you still can’t find the IP address of your router, another simple way to do this is, by launching Command Prompt. In the Start menu type ‘cmd’. This will lead you to Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt window type ‘ipconfig’ and find your IP address next to the ‘Default Gateway’.
Username and password are essential to access the login page. The most common username and passwords are: admin and admin or Cisco and Cisco. If these don’t work, look for the credentials specific to your Router. These are written either on the back or the bottom sticker of your Cisco Router. The most common combination is:
If that doesn’t work, it might also be:
The login credentials can also be found on the back of some routers. If your login details have been changed but you can’t remember what they are, you will need to reset your router to its default configuration.
After login in, you will find the control panel that helps you make the desired changes. You can reset your router, change security settings or alter your login details from here
Always remember to write down whatever changes you make to the settings of the router
this is for the off-chance that you forget your credentials or something else goes wrong
1. The router stopped working after the changes: if this happens, don’t panic. The default settings are going to save you. For this you will just have to reset the router. Follow he steps to reset your Cisco Router:
#1: Switch the router off, but the power supply in.
#2: There is a small black button located at the back of the router which you will have to long press with a pin.
#3: Hold the reset button with the pin for 10 seconds and automatic restart process will start. It takes 5-10 minutes to finish booting. When the light starts flickering it means the reset in on-going. When the lights become stable, the router is done.
#4: Switch it off and on once, and your router is setup.
Now use the default/ original credentials to login to the Cisco router. If the problem still persists: call the Cisco team to fix it for you. They have a good customer care that will support you throughout the fixing of the router.
