192.168.0.1 Login Problems and Fixes
http://dlinkrouter.local or http://192.168.0.1
One of the login problems some users may have is to be confused whether they should login to their D-Link router using http://dlinkrouter.local or http://192.168.0.1.
Well, to make things clear right away – you can login using both of these if you own a D-Link router. And here is the difference:
http://192.168.0.1 or only 192.168.0.1 is a default IP address used by various router companies for the routers they make.
On the other side, http://dlinkrouter.local or just http://dlinkrouter can only be used to access the D-Link router admin page.
Router IP typing errors
When we talk about typing errors we have to say that this is a very common router login problem.
Therefore make sure you:
- Type the correct default IP.
- Type it properly.
- Type it in the browser’s URL bar.
Type the correct default IP
You can easily check the router default IP address using the Command prompt. Take a look at our “Find your router IP address: Step-by-step” guide to confirm that 192.168.0.1 is your router’s default IP.
Type it properly
A very common mistake we do is to type 192.168.0.1.1, 192.168.o.1, 192.168.o.l or something like that.
In case the login page doesn’t open, check whether you have typed it properly.
Type it in the browser’s URL bar
Another typing mistake is to type the default IP in the Search bar instead of the URL bar. As a result you will get a bunch of Google search results instead of the router login page.
Router Settings: 4 things to have to change
After you login to your router there are several settings you need to change. Here is a list of the five basic ones. These changes will help you set up your wireless network and you can start browsing the Internet safely.
In the examples given below we are going to use the settings on our TP-Link Archer C7. The steps are pretty much the same no matter whether the interface is old or new.
Change the wireless settings
In order to change the wireless network name and password you need to login to the router. After that, follow these steps (as shown on the image below.)
- Click on ADVANCED
- On the menu on the left click Wireless, and then Wireless settings.
- If your Wireless router works on 2.4GHz and 5GHz you will have to make the changes on both bands. Just make sure to select the right one first.
- In the Network name (SSID) field type the desired Network name. There are plenty of funny and memorable ones to choose from.
- When you click on Security choose WPA/WPA2-Personal (Recommended) from the drop down list. WPA2 uses a stronger encryption algorithm. It is recommended to choose a mixed WPA/WPA2 modebecause there are chances you would like to connect an older device which isn’t compatible with WPA2.
- After you choose the right encryption type, you will have to enter your wireless password. Just make sure to choose something memorable, but hard to guess. A strong wireless password is the first and most important step in your home network security.
Check whether 2.4GHZ and 5GHz modes are active
If you have a new router chances are that it operates on both 2.4GHZ and 5GHz frequencies. Normally, both of the frequencies should be ON, but check this in the advanced settings just in case. They should be both active and your router will choose the best mode for the devices you normally use.
Enable parental controls
Having control on the time your kids spend online is crucial nowadays. Once you login to your router using the IP 192.168.0.1 you should easily find the Parental Controls settings in the menu.
Here you can easily control the devices under parental controls based on their MAC address. Here you can also control which websites your kids shouldn’t visit, which keywords to block, or set active hours for their devices.
Set up a guest network
One of the smartest things you can do when you set up your home network is to create a guest network. By doing this you will give your guests access to the internet but not access to your computers and files. Once you log in to your router, look for Guest network and then choose whether you like to change the Basic or advanced settings.
