Despite entering the IP address 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 in the browser, the router login does not work? We bring you to the router menu in 3 steps.
Nowadays it is much easier to set up a new router than to configure the old one. New WLAN routers come with activated and already secured WLAN. You will usually find the password on a small sticker on the underside of the device. Some of these stickers even contain the user name, password and the standard IP address – often 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.1. With an older router, however, things look different. Or in the meantime the password has been changed. Our tips help here.
3 steps: How to get access to your router
Router access still not working?
Instead of 192.168.1.1 or any other IP address, you can also enter clever shortcuts in the address line of the browser on many routers. For Fritz boxes, the router menu also appears if you
enter. Now you can easily access the Fritzbox. For the Speedport telecom router, type speedport.ip.
Unitymedia and KabelBW also use a different IP address.

I forgot the router password
If you have forgotten the username and password of your WLAN router, you must reset the router to the factory settings. You will usually find a reset button on the top or on the side. Sometimes it can only be activated with the help of a sharp pencil or a wire. You may have to hold the button down for several seconds. The exact time can be found in the router manual.
So that everything works next time …
If you wanted to log into your router to (re) configure your WLAN, you can do that now. We recommend that you set a strong password for access.
You can make your password particularly strong with a few simple tricks.
In addition, WPA2 should be chosen for the encryption method and not the much too weak WEP.
Another note: If you want to try this guide within a company network, speak to your admins first.
And if you have successfully logged in, it is best to check immediately whether there is an update.

Speedport.ip – so the login works with Telekom router
Telekom uses Speedport routers, so just type “speedport.ip” or “https: //speedport.ip” in the browser line. If that doesn’t work, usually “https://192.168.2.1” or “https://192.168.1.1” works for radio routers. You should find the password for the login page that appears on the back of the router.
