Having access to the internet requires your router to be set up. And to setup your Belkin router completely you need its default IP address.
Generally, there are two IP addresses for a router. One to communicate with the outer network like the internet and another to communicate with the devices in the internal network.
Usually, every internet service provider provides a public IP address for all the external communication and a default IP address for local networking that the user or the network admin can control.192.168.2.1 is often used as the default IP address for Belkin routers.
If you are looking to setup your network and require access to the default IP address of your Belkin Router, here is what you need to do.
Default IP address for your Belkin Router
Every router device is assignedanIP address during the process of manufacturing. This unique specific value varies as per the brand and the router model. However, routers of a single brand have identical IP addresses. This means that if we are using two or more than two routers of the Belkin brand, all of them would have the same IP address.
Now in order to connect to the router console you must know the IP address. Changing the passwords, setting up the port forwarding, enabling and disabling the DHCP features, and setting custom DNS servers, all require access to the default IP address.
You can access the router console using any web browser, on any device and typing in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This address is called as the default gateway as every client device relies on this router to connect to the internet. Computer OS also use this term on their network configuration menus.
If you are not able to access the Belkin Router Login page-192.168.2.1, you can instead use http://router to access the same.
Before you can actually go on to access and sign in to the Belkin wireless router login page at 192.168.2.1, you will require the default user Credentials like Belkin router setup default username and password. You can check the same on the product user manual or try the following combinations:
Username: admin; Password: admin
Username: admin; Password: password
Username: admin; Password: blank
Using these credentials you will be able to access the Belkin wireless Router Sign In page.
If you can’t access the page using these credentials, you can RESET the router and then use the default Credentials to access the same. The reset button is usually situated on the rear face of the routers. Press and hold it for 30-60 seconds until the router reboots itself, to reset the device.
