The Netgear router login admin page which has the username www.routerlogin.net or www.routerlogin.com helps a user with a number of things. This includes the initial setup, features control and basically personalizing the router can only be done using this page. Losing access to the www.routerlogin.net setup page can leave you helpless if you wish to make any particular change in the device itself. There are a few steps however that might help you out. To gain access to the Router login admin page you can use the Netgear router login IP or the web address. The things to ensure are:
The first thing that you need to make sure of is that you are using the proper web address, user name, and password for logging in. Please double check that this is what you’re entering:
Web address: www.routerlogin.net or www.routerlogin.com
User Name: admin
Note: The above mentioned password is the default password. If at any point you have changed the default Netgear router login password, you need to enter the same.
1. Your Netgear router can show you error while logging in due to its web cache page being completely filled. Clear the dump and the cache files from the following places:
- Google Chrome
- Internet Explorer
- Mozilla Firefox
- Apple Safari
Note: Sometimes www.routerlogin.net setup page can login only with particular browsers so ensure you have tried logging in from all of them.
2. One more added solution is to use the router IP address (http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1) as the Netgear router login IP address instead of using www.routerlogin.net or www.routerlogin.com.
Note: If the IP addresses 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 don’t work, call us and we can help you find out the same for you. There is a procedure but since it is a little complicated, it’s better that the experts handle it.
3. A wired Ethernet connection instead of a wireless one is another great way to try to connect to the www.routerlogin.net setup page (direct wired connections are always more reliable), or try to access it via a different device (phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, etc.).
Note: Make sure that you are using the internet connection from your Netgear device and not from any other source to login to NETGEAR router login page.
4. Connecting to multiple networks simultaneously sometimes makes you disconnected such as wired and wireless, VPN, or a corporate connection. The Netgear router login password can’t work then. Disconnect yourself from any and all the internet and VPN connections. Make sure you are only connected to your NETGEAR router.
5. Disable pop-up blockers, firewalls, or any ad blocking software temporarily on the page to ensure that they aren’t the one causing issues on the www.routerlogin.net setup page.
6. Restart all the devices in the picture of the network which includes desktops, laptops, phones, tablets, etc.
- Leave the power off on your NETGEAR router and cable modem for at least 10 seconds before rebooting the network.

7. If none of the above steps resolve your router login access problem, perform a factory reset of the router.
For more information, see How do I perform a factory reset on my NETGEAR router?
Note: After you perform a factory reset, any personalized router settings and configurations previously modified from the default are lost; including user name, password, network name (SSID), and security settings.
8. After factory resetting your router, login into your router using the information in step
- Once you are logged in, click ADVANCED
- Under Router Information, ensure your router IP Address is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1
- To prevent further login issues, ensure your firmware is up to date.
- Click ADVANCED > Router Update > Check
- If new firmware is found, click Yes to update the firmware.
