- Just provide your router’s name, and the table will tell you about the default admin password and user name.

If the login screen is not being opened, like, there is something not working, this means you have made the same mistake what we have mentioned above. You provided the wrong address; please look carefully every zero and one followed by a period, except the last.
What if you are not getting the password right?
This is one of the most common issues what most of the users face. They change the username and password and forget that. If you have not changed the password and using it the very first time, you can get it from the back of the device.
If you have changed it, then you must follow the instructions.
If you do not know the password and have checked the default values and they are not working for the device, you will have to reset the device.
Resetting the device will go it into the default mode and you can access that using the default values.
All routers’ providers have technical data sheets with the information if you are not seeing them on the back of the device. All lists are available free and you can search on Google to get them.
Now, restore the router’s info to the original default values. Find the reset button, and press it to hold for some seconds. You need to press hold the button for at least ten seconds. The device will get restored and change the settings to the default values.
Once you get to this, provide the default values and enter into the admin panel
This was the simplest way to get into the router’s administration panel. About all devices shares the same process. The default values can be different, and if you want to get them, just search them on Google.
The Important thing will be using the administration rights. Getting into the panel is not that issue, using the features inside it, is a pain in the neck. Very first time, when you use it, it takes time and sometime you can spoil the entire network.
Restoring the device will rinse all changes in the device. If you have done something, you do not understand, use this feature as many time as you want.
