How do I find the IP address of a Belkin router
· When routers are manufactured, they are associated with normal IP addresses. It depends on the company and the model of the device. For Belkin, the address is ‘192.168.2.1’. For any changes in the router settings, the admin needs to know the address.
· After connecting any device to the router, the browser will ask for the username and password from this IP address.
· This behaves like the default gateway for the computer’s OS to change the network configuration.
· It will use the same private network address until the administrator does not change anything. It is mandatory to change the default IP Address to avoid conflicts from other devices connected to the network.
· As it is simple and easy to remember, do not forget about the security of the network. Changing the address will not affect the DNS settings, passwords, and network masks.
· Router configuration can replace all settings including local IP address and configuration. All changes made before can replace the default settings. This is only done when there is a misconfiguration or irrelevant information. It is incorrect to create a user-requested link.
