How to Find My Default Router Address


Routers on a local area network (LAN) have a specific IP address that is generally static from the moment they are initially installed. This default router address varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but it generally always lies on the 192.168.x.x subnet. You can find out the default router address of your particular router by taking a look at what your computer sees as the router address.

  • Click on the "Start" button and then type "CMD" into the search bar on your Vista or Windows 7 machine. If you are using Windows XP, click the "Run" option and type "CMD" into the Run window.

  • Hit the "Enter" key to open the command prompt.

  • Type "ipconfig" into the command prompt window and press the "Enter" key.

  • Look at the IP address displayed next to the "Default Gateway" label. This is the IP address of your router.
