Myrouter.local is the web address that is set by default so that you can access the configuration page of the Linksys routers. It becomes necessary to have access to this web interface so as to access different settings of your router like LAN, wireless network security, wireless network setup and port forwarding among other settings. But the question is how to access this login page and configure these settings.
The first thing that you need to do is to ensure that the router is powered on. Then establish a connection between your PC and the router.
You should preferably establish the connection using an Ethernet cable. If it is not possible to establish a wired connection then you can also establish a wireless connection as well.
Once you have established a stable connection, open a browser on your PC.
Type http://myrouter.local in the address bar of your chosen browser and search.
You can also type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, which is the default IP address.
You’ll see a login page, enter the default password and username on the login page and press enter.
Username – blank field
Password – admin
If all the login credentials you have entered are correct then you will see a successful login web interface of the Linksys router respectively.
To change the password, first, you have to log in to the web interface.
After you have successfully logged in, you need to go to the Wireless tab.
You now have to select the Wireless Setting.
In the Passphrase field enter your new password and then re-enter it in the field just below it for the sake of confirmation.
The password for the router would be changed successfully by now.
Important to Note: Once you have successfully changed the password for the Linksys router’s WiFi. You’ll notice that all the devices connected with the WiFi earlier will automatically disconnect. You have to reconnect to the WiFi network again with the help of the new password which you have just created using the guidelines mentioned above.
If by any chance you forget your password after changing it in the first place then you’ll no longer be able to access the login page for Myrouter.local. The only way to access the router’s web interface is to reset the router’s settings and the password to its factory settings.
Factory resetting essentially reverts back all the changes that you have made to the configuration of the Linksys WiFi router. This will allow you to access the login page using the guidelines mentioned above.
All you have to do is to press the “Reset Button” on your router. Then wait for the reboot to do a successful factory reset.
Hope this guide was useful to you to gain access to the login page of your Linksys router’s web interface. If you have any further queries and are still not able to access the login page then you can contact us for further help.
