Login to ASUS Router: Step-By-Step
Not all people are tech-savvy and this is the main reason why the router login process is as simple and easy as possible.
Step 1 – Launch your browser
When your browser launches, type the default ASUS router IP address – 192.168.1.1 or http://router.asus.com in the address field.
If the login window doesn’t open, you can read about the possible solutions to this problem at the end of this article.
Step 2 – Enter the default login details
Default username: admin
Default password: admin
Step 3 – You are in
If the default IP, username and password were correct you should see the ASUS router settings page now. However, there are specific reasons why you won’t be able to log in. Let’s see how to fix these.
I can’t find my router IP/I accidentally changed my IP. How do I get back in?
Open the Command Prompt and type IPCONFIG. Scroll down a little till you see the Default Gateway. The string of numbers listed there is your ASUS router login IP. They should begin with 192.168….
I can’t login to my ASUS Router? Any ideas how to fix this?
- Fix 1 – Find the correct default IP
Normally the default IP address for ASUS routers is 192.168.1.1. However, if you are not sure you can find the correct IP using the Command Prompt, and the IPCONFIG command.
- Fix 2 – Make sure you are not using a wrong username and password
The default username and password for ASUS routers are admin, in both fields. However if you, or your ISP, have changed it before you’ll have to use the new ones. In case you can’t remember, you’ll have to hard-reset your router.
- Fix 3 – Type the IP in the URL/Address bar, not the Search field
A common reason why you can’t see the login window at first place is that you have typed the default IP 192.168.1.1 in the Search bar which will give you Google search results. Instead type it in the URL or Address bar.
- Fix 4 – Typing error
Quite often typing 192.168.l.l instead of 192.168.1.1 is the reason why the ASUS router login page won’t show up.
I’m still having trouble. What’s going on?
Make sure that you have disabled all web proxies. You may also need to check the ASUS website for firmware updates. Also take a look at your cables and make sure that everything is firmly connected. You can try pinging the router in the command prompt to check connectivity. If you get a response, your connections are good. If you don’t, one of your cables could be bad.
Two ways to reset your ASUS wireless router
If you want to reset ASUS router to factory settings you can do it in two ways:
- Via the router settings page
- Using the reset button on the router
Factory reset ASUS router via the settings page
If you still have access to the ASUS router login page you can reset the router from there.
To do this, you first have to login to the router just like we have described above.
After you log in, click Administration in the menu on the left.
Next click Restore/Save/Upload Setting on the top-right of the page.
And finally click on Restore next to Factory default.
Confirm by clicking OK in the pop-up window.
Before you begin, make sure to have a paperclip or a pen in order to press the Reset button.
This button is normally located at the back of the router.
Press the Reset button and hold it for about 30 seconds. When the Power light starts to flash, release the button.
The router will restart. Wait till the lights stabilize and then try to login again when the process is complete. This time you will be able to login with the default username and password.
NOTE: If this didn’t work, you should try the 30-30-30 rule.
In short terms, this means:
- Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds
- While still pressing the Reset button, unplug it from the power source and keep it pressed for another 30 sec.
- While holding the button, plug the router back in and keep the button for another 30 sec.
These 90 seconds will definitely reset the ASUS router to factory settings.
Will ASUS router factory reset passwords only?
No. When you reset the router to factory settings it comes down to the default settings. This means that the Network name, the Wi-Fi password, and every other modifications made before will be erased.
At the same time, if you decide to set up a new Wi-Fi password, you will have to update it on all the devices that were previously connected you your Wi-Fi network.
If you are still having problems even after taking the steps above, you will want to get in touch with the ASUS customer service team. Generally, getting into your router’s configuration interface should take just seconds!
