How do I connect to my broadband router's management interface ?
Most broadband routers (and SOHO firewalls) have some form of web-based administration for router configuration and management. Different brands routers use different default IPs/ports for connecting to their web management interface. Here is a quick and incomplete cheat sheet to help you connect to them:
Cayman (Netopia): http://192.168.1.254 (or http://cayman-dsl)
Efficient Networks Speedstream 5200: 192.168.254.254
Ericsson Piperider: 192.168.100.1
Q-TEC 790RH: http://192.168.1.1
SMC: http://192.168.100.1 (admin/smc)
Trendnet Wireless F3: http://192.168.3.1
Westell Wirespeed http://launchmodem/ or http://192.168.1.254
- For a more complete database of routers' addresses, as well as default passwords, check out our Broadband Hardware Database.
- You can easily find your router's IP address in Command Prompt (Start > Run > type command), by typing ipconfig. The "Default Gateway" is your router's IP address in most cases, and can be used as an URL for its management interface.
- To connect to a router's admin interface via the WAN port, you might have to enable the feature in the router, then use the router's public IP address and the same port.
- Even if your router is not listed, you might still be able to connect to it using one of the above IP addresses.
- For a list of cable/dsl modems' diagnostic interface IPs please see our Cable Modem FAQ instead.
Please help us add to the above list by emailing email@example.com and give us your router brand/model and the URL/port.
