Find Router IP Address using Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android

Finding Router IP address is important to each user. If you need to access your router’s login page to make some changes or change the settings, you will need your router’s IP address to access. If you forgot the IP address, here’s how to find it.

First, you should familiarize yourself with the following two terms – router IP and default gateway IP. Your router’s IP works like a gateway between all your devices and the wider internet. That is the reason why it can be called a “default gateway IP”. All devices that are connected on the same network send their requests to the router by default. 

Once you find the IP for your modem, you can enter it into the address bar on your web browser to access the web configuration page. Here’s how to find the IP address from different operating systems.
