Primarily proceeding with the Netgear router login troubleshooting process, make sure you are using the correct username and password for the router (admin and password are the default values). Also disconnect your system from all other wired, wireless, corporate, or VPN connections (only one wireless or wired connection with a Netgear router). Also disable all pop-up blockers and ad-blocking add-ons in your browser. If you use Netgear Genie, download and check that you have access to Routerlogin.net. Also, try to access Routerlogin.net setup using a different cable and port on your router.
1 Method : Restart the Router and System
The router problem may be due to a temporary software/communication problem. This is a very common scenario and can happen from time to time. The fault can be rectified by switching on the router and your system.
- Turn off the router and then turn off the system
- Disconnect the power cord from the router.
- Wait at least 30 seconds, and then connect the power cord to the router.
- Now turn on the system and wait until the system is fully activated
- Then turn on the router and make sure you have access to Routerlogin.net setup
2 Method : Use a different connection mode
This issue may occur if the connection mode (wired or wireless) of your device is not configured correctly if the router does not allow a specific mode to access the settings page. In this scenario, using a different connection mode may resolve the issue.
- If you have problems with your wireless connection, connect the router and the system with an Ethernet cable and make sure you are accessing net setup.
- If you’re having trouble with your wired network, try using a wireless connection. If you are using the 2.4 GHz band, try connecting to the 5 GHz band and see if the router problem is resolved.
3 Method : Use the router’s IP address to access the management console.
Netgear uses DNS to direct you to Routerlogin.net setup. This error can occur manually if your system does not have access to its DNS server and therefore the address cannot be resolved. In this case, you can solve the problem by using the router’s IP address to access its management console. To illustrate, we will discuss the process of finding out the IP address of your router on a Windows computer.
- Click the Windows button and type CMD in the Windows search box. Then click Command Prompt in the list of results.
- At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press Enter:
- Now check the default gateway value. It is usually 192.168.0.1. or 10.0.0.1
- Then open a web browser and enter the above address (without HTTP or HTTPS) in the address bar to verify that you have access to the management console.
4 Method : After that clears your browser’s Cache
Your browser, like many other applications, uses caching to make your work easier and to improve your user experience. If your browser’s cache is corrupted, you may not be able to access the router’s administration page. Clearing the browser cache may resolve this issue.
You can follow the instructions in your browser, while we’ll show you how to do this in Chrome. If you do not want to clear your browser’s cache, you can use private/incognito mode in your browser (if no add-on is available in private/incognito mode).
- Launch Chrome and click the ellipsis button in the upper right corner of the window
- Hover over the Tools tool in the menu, then click Delete Browsing Details
- Then select the categories you want to delete and then select the time range (it is better to select all categories and select All-Time).
- Now click the Delete Data button and wait for the operation to complete.
- Then make sure you have access to net setup.
