10.0.1.4 is a private IP address generally used as the gateway address of various brands and models of routers. We usually use this address to set up the router’s administrator access to configure the router and network, but not all routers use 10.0.1.4 as the login address. In addition, we often encounter various problems when using 10.0.1.4 to log in to the router. The following are some common problems and solutions for your reference.
How to use 10.0.1.4 to access the router’s administration page
The router’s standard login administration address is 10.0.1.4.
- Verify that the login IP of your router is 10.0.1.4. To find the login details, look at the label on the router’s bottom.
- Connect the laptop or smartphone to the router. For a laptop or mobile device, you can connect it to the router directly via WiFi, but you’ll need a network cable to connect the router’s LAN port to your desktop computer.
- Open your default web browser (Edge, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.)
- In the address bar of your browser, type 10.0.1.4 and press “Enter,” or just type http://10.0.1.4
- The router administration’s user login panel will be reached via this page.
- Type in the appropriate username and password.
- Click the “Login” button. You ought to be able to log in and manage and configure your router as usual.
Common Router passwords by Brand:
|Brand||Username / Password|
|AboCom||Admin/admin or password|
|Adb||admin/admin or password|
|AT&T Uverse||Refer to sticker/Refer to sticker|
|XFINITY from Comcast||admin/password|
|Zero One Technology||admin/0000|
|Zoom||admin/admin or zoomadsl|
|ZyXEL||admin/admin or 1234|
How to change the password of routers using 10.0.1.4 as the login address?
You typically need to change the router’s default user name and password in order to ensure network security and stop others from tampering with the network.
Change the router’s login password by:
- Logging into the router’s administration page
- Click “Advanced” → “Administration” → “Set Password.” to modify the router’s login password.
- Click “Apply” after entering the new and old passwords.
When you correctly enter the modified password after changing the router’s administrator login password, you can log in. For future use, you must keep in mind the updated password.
To change the wireless network password (WIFI password)
- Log in to the administration page of the router
- Click “Advanced” → “Setup” → “Wireless Setup”
- Select “WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK”.
- Enter the PSK password (WIFI password) → Click “Apply.”
Solving problems using IP 10.0.1.4
- An incorrect local IP setting will result in the difficulty of logging into the router. Make sure the computer’s IP address is set to be obtained automatically.
- When you encounter a router connection issue, connect the modem to the external phone line or optical fiber first before using the network cable to attach the modem to the router’s WAN port. A desktop computer must use a network cable to connect to the router’s LAN port from a laptop or smartphone, which can connect to the router wirelessly.
- The router’s setup interface won’t open if there’s a problem with the network cable that connects the computer to the router. Check to see if the cable is accessible for regular use or replace it with an intact one, plug it in firmly, and then try the login process again with 10.0.1.4. Additionally, see if the computer’s network icon in the lower right corner displays oddly.
- There are times when the address 10.0.1.4 is spelled incorrectly, and you may encounter typical typing errors like these: 10.o.1.4, 10.o.I.4, 10.o.l.4, and 10.0.I, 4. Additionally, the address bar in the browser—that is, the area at the top of the browser where the URL is displayed—should be used to type in 10.0.1.4.
- Not all routers have the same IP address (10.0.1.4), which varies depending on the router’s brand and model. You cannot access the router’s setup page with this IP if your router’s IP address is anything other than 10.0.1.4. The router’s bottom label should have the details. You must use the modified login address if the router’s default IP address has been changed.
How to restore the factory settings of routers using 10.0.1.4
The most popular default credentials for logging into the administrative interface are “admin” or “setup,” and you can find the default settings for wireless (or Wi-Fi) routers made by TP-Link, Netgear, or D-Link on the device’s back. Resetting the router is an option if this doesn’t work for you.
- Click “Advanced,” “Administration,” and “Backup Settings” after logging in to the router’s administration page.
- To prevent malfunction and interference with regular Internet access, a dialog box will appear when you click the “Revert to Factory Default Settings” button.
- When you press the “OK” button, the router will restart itself.
- The router will return to its default settings after a reboot.
- On the wireless router’s back, locate the RESET button.
- This button typically comes in two shapes: a protruding button that can be pressed directly and a small hole-shaped button that must have a paper clip, pin, or other fine-pointed object inserted into it before being repeatedly pressed.
- The power indicator is on and the router is powered on.
- For about 10 seconds, press and hold the RESET button, and then let go.
- You can log in using the information listed on the sticker and the factory settings will be restored.
More details about 10.0.1.4
The private network 10.0.1.0/24 includes the IP address 10.0.1.4, which is registered by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). Contrary to public IP addresses, private space IP addresses are freely usable by anyone without the approval of a regional Internet registry as described in RFC 1918. Private space IP addresses are not assigned to any particular organization, including your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
However, IP packets addressed from a private range cannot be sent through the public Internet; as a result, if a private network needs to connect to the Internet, it must do so through a network address translator (also known as NAT) gateway or a proxy server, which is typically accessed via port 8080 or 8081 if it doesn’t work directly.
AA wired or wireless router you receive from your broadband provider is an illustration of a NAT gateway. According to your provider and brand, the fixed IP address of such a device in the network range 10.0.1.0/24 would typically be 10.0.1.254 or 10.0.1.1. A gateway web interface should be accessible via the HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and/or HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) protocols. To try this, type “http://ip address” or “https://ip address” into the address bar of your preferred web browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and log in using the username and password provided by your provider.
These kinds of IP addresses can be used in your local network and given to your devices, including desktop, laptop, tablet, and/or smartphone. Additionally, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server range can be set up to automatically assign IP addresses.
