Need to access my router

I need to check the DHCP setting on my router, but am unable to access it from inside my network via it's IP address (192.168.0.1).  I have tried urls such as the following:

http://192.168.0.1

http://192.168.0.1:8080 (also tried other ports)

https://192.168.0.1

https://192.168.0.1:8080 (also tried other ports)

How can I gain access to the router?

  • What router do you have? The most straight forward way is to check your computer's IP for it's "Default gateway". As long as your online, that should get you to your router. If it doesn't bring up a website, try pinging the IP. 

    Also, most router GUI will be on port 80, but your browser should default to then when entering in a IP into the browser.

    Last, off the top of my head, some other ones to try are 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.100.1 (some gateways).

  • My router is a Cisco from Cox, and was installed when the system was installed at my house.

    As I indicated, I am using the default gateway IP address in the browser address box (e.g., http://192.168.0.1).  

    This address pings just fine, but the browser times out and won’t bring up the Cisco admin GUI panel.

    I meant specifically what model router. Should be printed somewhere on it.

    Actually you didn't indicate that, you said that was your "router's IP" not your PC's default gateway IP from IPconfig. What happens when you do a tracert to google? Start > Run > CMD > Tracert google.com

    Almost seems like a phone gateway not registered for data, so the GUI is disabled, but that wouldn't let you online. Are you online via the device?

  • The router is the default gateway.   At least it is on my network.
