Forgot IP address, username or password?
If you’ve changed your username or password and then forgot it, you can reset the router instead to its factory settings. Usually, the reset button is a small button that you can find on the back of your router. You’ll need a pin or something sharp to press it. Once found, press and hold it down for about 10 seconds, and your router will reset to its factory settings, then you can give it another try and log in to 192.168.1.1 IP address.
After accessing to the router’s setting, you will be able to make any changes to Wireless Settings such as SSID, which is the network name, WiFi password, MAC/Physical Address Filtering, Access Control, and other settings on your network device.
