is a private IP address often used as a default gateway for some broadband routers, such as those from 2Wire, Arris, Billion, Motorola, PlusNet, Telmex, and AT&T, among others.

This IP address is typically used to access the router’s admin settings, similar to and,  where you can configure your Wi-Fi network, set up port forwarding, or change other settings.

How to login to

To log in to, first, make sure your device is connected to the network.

  1. Open a web browser and type into the address bar, then hit ‘Enter’.
  2. This should bring up the login screen for your router. Here, you will be prompted to enter a username and password.
  3. If you haven’t changed these details, they should still be the default ones set by your manufacturer, which you can usually find in your router’s manual or on a sticker on the router itself.
  4. If you have changed these details and forgotten them, you will need to reset your router back to factory settings.
  5. After logging in, you can make the necessary changes to your network’s settings.

Remember, always ensure your network is secure by using strong usernames and passwords. Default Username and Passwords

The default usernames and passwords for can vary depending on the brand of your router. For instance, 2Wire routers typically use ‘admin’ or blank as the username and ‘password’ as the password. Arris routers often have ‘admin’ as the username and ‘password’ as the password as well. Please check the following list for router default username and passwords.

Forgot Username and Password?

If you’ve forgotten your username and password, you don’t need to panic. As mentioned before, you can reset the router to its factory settings, which will revert the username and password back to their defaults.

This usually involves pressing and holding the reset button on the router for about 10 seconds. After doing this, you should be able to log in using the default username and password. However, remember that resetting your router will also erase all of your personalized settings. Therefore, you should only resort to this if you have no other options.

After logging in, make sure to set a new, secure username and password to prevent unauthorized access to your network. It’s also a good idea to keep a written record of these details in a secure place so you can easily retrieve them if needed.

Unable to Access

If you’re having trouble accessing, there are a few things you can try.

  1. Make sure you’re typing the IP address correctly. It should be ‘’, not ‘www.’ or ‘192.168.l.254’.
  2. Make sure your device is connected to the correct network.
  3. If you’re still having trouble, you may want to try using a different browser or device.
  4. If none of these steps work, there may be a problem with your router or network connection. In this case, you may need to contact your ISP or the manufacturer of your router for further assistance.

Remember, accessing your router’s settings should be done with caution. Changing certain settings without understanding their functions may disrupt your network connection. Always ensure you have a backup of your current settings before making any changes.

How to change wireless network name (SSID)?

  1. To change your wireless network name, also known as the SSID (Service Set Identifier), you’ll first need to log in to your router using the IP address as explained earlier.
  2. Once you’re logged in, look for settings related to wireless or Wi-Fi. There should be a field labeled SSID, Network Name, or something similar. This is where you can change your network’s name.
  3. Once you’ve entered your new name, make sure to save or apply the changes. Keep in mind that changing your network’s name will disconnect all devices currently connected to the network.
  4. You’ll need to reconnect these devices using the new network name.

It’s also important to note that your network name should not include any personal information, as it can be seen by anyone within range of your network. Change your SSID regularly to ensure network security. Always remember to use a unique and hard-to-guess name for your network to reduce the risk of unauthorized access.
