In order to guarantee access to the settings of the router, it is necessary to make changes to the network configurations of the computer in accordance with its IP address – otherwise, it will not be possible to enter the personal cabinet at 192.168.1.1. To get into these configurations, we go along the chain:
Configuring Your Computer to Enter the Router to Access 192.168.1.1
- “Start – Control Panel – Network and Internet – Network and Sharing Center” for Windows 7 or right click on “Start” and then “Network Connections – Network Management Center” if you have Windows 10
- Further, In the left Menu, we select the item “Change adapter parameters”.
- We find the active “Local Area Connection”, click on it with the right mouse button and select “Properties”
- Choose the item “Internet Protocol Version 4”
- We put the checkbox on either automatic receipt of IP and DNS – in this case, the router will assign them to the computer on their own.
If you do not get to enter the admin area of the router with these settings, put the checkboxes on manual parameter input. The PC must have IP from the same subnet as the router. That is, if the address of the router is 192.168.1.1, then the computer’s first three values must be identical – 192.168.1.XXX – the last digit refers directly to this client and can be any from 2 to 254, for example, “3”.
