What is the 192.168.1.1 Router IP?
192.168.1.1 is the default IP address that most routers use as a gateway. Router companies usually set up router admin access at this IP address, so that users can access and configure their router or network.
The 192.168.1.1 IP address is one of the most common default gateways for routers. Your router’s private IP address is the default gateway. On most home networks networks, with a single router and several connected devices, the router’s IP address is the default gateway.
All computer and mobile phones on your network send traffic to this IP address by default.
In Windows, this is called the “default gateway”. On Macs, iPhones, and iPads it is called the “router”.
The 192.168.1.1 IP address for your router is important to know, as this is usually the address that you must type into your internet browser to locate your router’s setup page, from where you can configure the router’s settings.

I Cannot Open my Router Admin Login Page. What Did I Do Wrong?
If you cannot open your router’s admin page, then it may be because:
- Your router’s IP may not be 192.168.1.1. Try entering 192.168.0.1, 192.168.2.1, 192.168.1.254 or 10.0.0.1 in your browser’s address bar.
