You’ve come to the right place if you want to access the 192.168.1.1 Linksys router login page and you’re looking for information to help you do that or if you want an easier way to log into your Linksys wireless router. You’ll be able to do it once you’ve finished reading this article.
You can log into your Linksys router and change the wireless settings by visiting the login page. Your router prevents unauthorized users from accessing the router’s settings by requiring them to enter the default Linksys router password on the login page. This prevents you from directly logging into your router.

How to Reboot a Router and Modem
If you believe something is wrong with your network, restart your modem and router. Perhaps Netflix freezes midway through a movie, web pages won’t load, or your intelligent speakers abruptly stop playing music.
The router can clear its memory after restarting.
Resetting a router or modem is different from restarting (or rebooting). For more details, see Rebooting vs. Resetting.
- Disconnect the modem and router. Unplug any managed network hardware you may have, such as network switches. Unmanaged devices can be left powered on, but exercise caution if you believe they may contribute to the issue. Reset or restart buttons shouldn’t be used because they begin the factory reset or restore process. Using a power button with clear instructions is okay, but unplugging clears up any uncertainty.
- Hold off for at least 30 seconds. During useiod, you can let the hardware cool down and let your ISP, computers, and other devices know that the router and modem aren’t working. If you see a connection issue, skip this step. If you are unsure of the issue, restart the modem and router.
- Connect the modem. Press the Power button if it doesn’t turn on within a few seconds. Your internet connection is connected to a modem by this device. For instance, the modem connects to the coax cable outside the house using a cable-based internet service.
- Hold off for at least a minute. The modem authenticates with your ISP during this time and receives a public IP address.
- Connect the router. You should press the Power button on some routers. Skip this and the following step if using a modem/router combo. Things are started in the correct order by the software on that device. Since the router and modem are physically connected, the object next to the modem is probably the router. Although not all routers do, many do, so if you see one or more of those, the router is perhaps that one.
- Permit two minutes minimum. As a result, the router has time to start up. Additionally, it gives time for new private IP addresses to be assigned by the router’s DHCP service to computers, smartphones, and other network-connected devices. Power switches and other network hardware back on if you previously turned them off. Then pause for a second. Based on your network map, turn on each device if you have several.
- Check whether the issue has been resolved after the router and modem restart.
