Day 1: Where have you been on holiday this year? - login to the router system, and password admin

This article will be useful to those who want to enter the settings of their router. Since most routers use to log on, this manual will be universal and probably very popular. In spite of what kind of router we have and what parameters we want to change, we first need to enter the settings. Get access to the control panel. And you can do this at, or

On routers from such popular companies as TP-Link, ASUS, ZyXEL, D-Link, Netis, Tenda, Totolink - all about the same. In any case, you can always find out the factory address. For example, look at it on the case of the device, or in the connection properties on the computer. We will return to this later.

If you do not understand what this article is about, what these addresses are for and what we will do at all, but now I will try to explain. If you are in the subject - then you can not read what is written under the spoiler.

Our router, or modem, is not just a box with several antennas and ports that can share internet with other devices. It is such a small computer, in which there is a processor, and even a permanent and operative memory. Well, that all this worked, the router installed the operating system (if you can call it that), or just the firmware. No, not Windows. This is not enough :). As a rule, this is a unique software developed by the manufacturer. Can be built on Linux.

Since the router is a network device, you can also access its system with settings and other information at a specific network address. This is usually the IP address And to get the rights to access the settings themselves, you need to pass authorization. Simply enter your login and password. In most cases, the password is admin and the login is admin.

Some manufacturers use a different factory IP address to enter the control panel and other "login" and "password" for authorization. For example, the routers from Xiaomi use the address On Huawei is usually In this article I'll show you one way, using which you can open a page with settings for absolutely any router or modem. Even if you do not know his address. After all TP-Link, it can be changed and does not correspond to the factory one. Which is indicated on the device.

How to log in to
On the device D-Link (computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet) that is connected to the router or modem using a network cable, or a Wi-Fi network, you need to open the browser. Anyone will do. But I advise you to use the standard one. I'll be using Microsoft Edge in Windows 10.

In the line where the addresses of the sites are displayed, enter the address Or To go press the Enter button.

And if the address you specified is correct, the device is connected to the router and configured, then the page of your router will open.

If the search engine page opens, make sure that you enter the address not in the search bar. And it's better to open it through a different browser.
I have an ASUS router and it asks for a user name (Login) and a password (Password) for authorization.

Login to the router at

We specify these data and get into the personal cabinet of the router. Yes, many people call the web interface, but this is not entirely correct. The personal cabinet is at the provider. - login to the personal cabinet of the ASUS router

Another simple, universal and working method. On the computer, go to the explorer, on the "Network" tab. There should be displayed our router. Click on it with the right mouse button and select "View web page device."
Quick access to the system of a router or modem

A browser opens with the page of our router. Do not manually search for anything, enter, etc.

Let's take a closer look at the authorization process. Many people in the comments ask about this. Not everyone understands what to enter when the router requests a login and password. And where to get the data to log into the router account.

Log on to via login and password (admin / admin)
Please note that the router does not always request a login and password. I will enter the factory settings. And if it asks, it does not mean that by default it's necessarily admin.

On some routers, the factory settings do not have authorization. Immediately opens the router system. Perhaps a window with a suggestion to set a login and password appears. And if not, it can be done in the settings. About this I wrote in the article: how to change the password from admin to another.
If the request for a user name and password still appears, then they must be indicated on the body of the router itself.
In my experience:

On TP-Link and ASUS routers, by default, always admin / admin. The address is usually
On D-Link can be the same as admin. Or the username admin, and the password field is left blank.
On ZyXEL, the password is not set in the factory settings.
Netis - no authorization. If the login and password were not set by the user.
Tenda immediately opens the web interface. The password can be set manually.
Totolink - admin and admin.
Important! All this at the factory settings. After all, the password and / or login in your case can be changed the first time you configure the router. Read more in the article how to enter the router settings if you forgot your password.

Here is the authorization for TP-Link routers:

Login TP-L Enter the router system through admin and adminink by IP

In any case, there simply appears a window with a request for a username and password. It may look a little different. We specify them correctly - we go to the web interface. If not, an error will appear. If you have changed and forgotten this password, then we reset the router parameters to the factory ones.

I can not enter the router, what should I do?
Not infrequently there are problems. There may be many reasons why I can not go to

The page at address does not open

I'll tell you about the solution of the most popular.

1 Try the method I wrote about earlier in this article. When we open the web page of the router through Windows Explorer.
2 Restart the router. Try logging in from another browser. When I can not open the web interface, I first try to go from another device. If it is there.
3 Next you need to make sure that the factory address of your router is The address itself can be viewed on the hull of the router (there must be a sticker with information). There are also factory "User Name" and "Password".
IP address on the router

If there is a different address, then go to it.

4 Be sure to check if there is a connection to the router. Even if the connection status is "No Internet access", the page with the settings should all open exactly.
5 If you are trying to log in from a computer or laptop, check the IP settings. There should be an automatic receipt of addresses. In connection properties over a local area network (Ethernet), or wireless connection. Depending on how you are connected.
