We’ve all been there, you are trying to fix a network issues and you need to access the router’s browser interface. Fruitlessly pecking in combinations of 192.168.x.x or 10.0.x.x. Unless you have every default router address tattooed on your forearm, you’ll eventually encounter one that stumps you.

  • The address you need should be next to Default Gateway under your Local Area Connection, and it will often begin with 192.168.x.x or 10.0.x.x
