- Accessing the Linksys gateway’s web-based setup page
Linksys gateways have a built-in web-based setup page that allows users to customize and set up advanced settings. This feature may be used to easily check, configure and modify settings on the router.
QUICK TIP: Before you begin, make sure that the gateway is powered ON and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports at the back of the gateway (1, 2, 3 or 4).
Accessing the Linksys gateway’s web-based setup page
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer. On the Address bar, enter the gateway’s IP address then press [Enter]. The default IP address 192.168.1.1 is used by most Linksys gateways.
The Linksys gateway’s IP address can be changed by:
- Running the gateway’s Setup CD.
- Changing it from the gateway’s web-based setup page.
If you forgot the gateway’s IP address you can:
- Check the gateway's IP address. For instructions on how to do this, click here.
- Press and hold the Reset button at the back of the gateway for 10 seconds. This procedure will reset your gateway to factory defaults.
An authentication window will prompt you for a User name and Password. Enter the default User name and Password which is “admin” then click OK.
NOTE: If the User name and Password of the gateway has been changed, use it to log in to the web-based setup page. Reset the gateway to factory default settings if you have forgotten the login credentials.
