Technical Guide To Finding Router IP

If none of the IP’s above work, you can find your router IP by locating your Gateway IP. If you’re technical, you can do this via your terminal (MAC) or command prompt (Windows).

Terminal on Mac

If you have a Mac, you can run this command: “netstat -nr | grep ^default” (without the quotes) to find the network gateway IP address:

netstat -nr | grep '^default'
    default            192.168.100.1      UGSc           82        0     en0

From this specific example, my router administrative panel would be at http://192.168.100.1.

Command Prompt on Windows

If you are running Windows, run this command in your command prompt: ipconfig | findstr /i “Gateway”. It looks something like this:

ipconfig | findstr /i "Gateway"
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.100.1

From this specific example, my router administrative panel would be at http://192.168.100.1.
