Hello, my name is Josiah Rea. I'm going to show you how to find out what your routers IP address is. Now you need the IP address to access your router settings. So if you want to reconfigure it, enable security, anything like that you need to mainly put in the address of your router. Fortunately most of the time that is a default setting set from the manufacturers so it's not like the same IP address as if you're going to another computer. If you are connected to the router you just put this address in and it should bring you right to there. Now I've got a kind of a cheat sheet set up here on my computer. This is the address for like a Linksys router or something like that. The Now I think with the, some of the other routers like a Netforce I think, it's .0.1 at the end. But this is, we're going to be accessing a Linksys router so we're going to use this address. So if we just copy this and then come into any web browser and you paste that into the address bar and hit enter it brings you right up to the router configuration screen. Most of them will require some kind of a log in. You can contact your manufacturer if you don't know what yours is. It's usually just a default. If you've set it and you've forgotten it you might need some help resetting it. But this is how to get into your router and what the IP address is. I hope you've enjoyed this video. I’m Josiah Rea.
