How to Find Your Default Gateway?

On a Windows-based computer, to access a Command Prompt, click on the Start menu button and search for CMD. Click to open.

Or press the Windows Key on your keyboard while also pressing the R key. This will bring up the Run Menu. Now you can simply type CMD and click OK.

After opening the Command Prompt you should see a small black window like the one below:

In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig and press Enter/Return on your keyboard. Scroll up to see Default Gateway with the device’s IP address listed to the right of it.

Now, open any web browser and input the IP address into the Address Bar located at the top and press Enter/Return on your keyboard.
A box should appear prompting you to enter the router’s username and password. This information can sometimes be found on your router, or in your information guide.

🌟 If you can’t find it on either, search the Internet by typing your router’s make and model and Default Administrator Password into any search engine. This will only work if you have not changed the password on your router. If you have changed the default password and forget it, reset your router.
