NETGEAR Router Login

Are you struggling to log in to your Netgear Router? Logging into your router shouldn’t be difficult, but in today’s TechSplat article, we’re going to take a look into how you can log in to your Netgear router and perform administrative tasks. Let’s jump straight into it!

How to Login to a Netgear Router

In order to login to a Netgear router, there are two ways you can do this, but both of these solutions require you to be on the same network as the router. If you’re next to the router, follow these steps;

  1. Connect your laptop either by an Ethernet Cable or over WiFi.
  2. Once connected to the Router, visit “routerlogin.com” on a Browser like Chrome or Safari.
  3. If you are unable to connect to this, then try one of the default IP addresses. To do this, open Chrome, or another web browser and type in “HTTP://192.168.1.1
  4. Going to either of these pages, will allow you to access the Netgear portal, and let you sign in.

If this is the first time you’ve signed in, there’s a good chance that the Netgear default credentials haven’t changed. You can find our guide on how to find the default password for Netgear networking devices here, but typically, the default credentials are;

  • Username: admin
  • Password: password

Please note that these are case sensitive. If you’ve not changed the password before, and the above credentials don’t work – you may need to reset your Netgear router.

What are the Netgear Router Login Credentials

As discussed above, if you go to your Netgear Router portal, you can use the following default credentials and passwords.

  • Username: admin
  • Password: password

Please note that these are case sensitive. If you’ve not changed the password before, and the above credentials don’t work – you may need to reset your Netgear router.

Reasons to Log in to the Netgear Router

Although by standard, when using a Netgear Router, you’re almost always able to plug-n-play, meaning you don’t have to log in and make technical changes to use it. However, if you are technical or need specific ports, traffic routes or blocking of devices and sites – then logging into your Netgear Router could help you.

Are all Netgear Routers the same?

No. All routers have various versions, but on the hole – Netgear devices all do pretty much the same thing. Although there are major differences between versions, speeds, and types – the Netgear admin router portal will always be in the same place. To access this, read through this guide, and log in using the details above.
