If your router or modem is using 192.168.0.1 IP address to identify itself on the network but you cannot administer it by navigating to http://192.168.0.1/ then you need to find out if any of the following is true:
  • Check if your router is really identifying itself with 192.168.0.1 IP. You can look at the steps below for different operating systems.
  • Check if your device connected to mobile network or local network. If you are connected to a mobile network you won't be able to administer your router.
  • If you know that your router is using 192.168.0.1 and you still cannot administer it by typing http://192.168.0.1 in your browser address bar you need to check if you are connected to the correct network. If you have more than one router in your home or multiple wi-fi networks it is possible that you are connected to the one with a different router IP address.
