Troubleshoot 192.168.100.1 Login Problems
1. If the Password Doesn’t Work
There are two possibilities that will occur, either the correct default password is not entered or the password that was originally set by the user is forgotten. For the former case, users need to browse the default credentials for their model of WiFi used currently.
For the latter case, the only option available is to reboot the entire WiFi system settings. That will wash out all the settings saved and changed by the users, coming back directly to the default settings. After the reboot, users can enter the default username and password in the admin management page to enter in their admin panel and further change the settings as per their choice.
2. Unable To Access Anything

- The correct IP Address is not used in the browser: 192.168.100.1 may not be the right IP address for the user. The user has to find the right IP address for their network and then proceed.
- The correct IP address is entered wrong: all the IP address beginning from 192.168.1.1 are natural numbers and no alphabet is included. Users should not mistake natural number 1 with roman number 1.
- In certain situations, the browser firewall may be blocking temporarily that has to be changed in the network settings.
