Linksys is one of the routers manufacturers most recognized among users. Its routers and modems are produced and exported for millions of clients around the globe. If you are a Linksys router user, you probably know what the address myrouter.local means.
But if you use another router brand or maybe came across the address while searching about networking devices on the internet, it is possible that you have not figured out what it is and for what it is used. This article will help you to understand.
What is the myrouter.local address ?
Basically, myrouter.local is an address that a Linksys router user can type on an internet browser to have access to the configuration panel. If you use one of the Linksys models and you need to change the router settings, be it basic or advanced, myrouter.local is the standard address to enter a configuration screen and have access to all routers settings you may need to manage.
How to use?
Make sure you have a stable connection to the router, by wireless or by an ethernet cable. Open your internet browser and fill in the internet address bar with myrouter.local and press the enter key.
You will be directed to the login page. Here you need to enter the login credentials. It is absolutely necessary to enter the exact username and password. If you never changed the password and username, you can try admin, for both password and admin username.If these values do not work, see the table below:
|Linksys default passwords and admin|
|BEFSR||admin or (blank)||admin|
|E||admin or(blank)||admin or (blank)|
|EA||admin||admin or (blank)|
|WRT||admin or (blank)||admin or (blank)|
In case you changed the password but no longer remember it. You shall reset the router to the original factory settings (usually holding the reset button for a dozen seconds or so). After performing this you will be able to use the default admin and password again.
That’s it! After getting the right credentials you will be directed to the configuration page of your linksys router.
Problems for using the myrouter.local address on your linksys router ? Check out if your problem is among the following:
- IP conflict – Sometimes routers cannot access the default configuration IP address due to IP conflicts on the network.
- Be sure to get a valid IP address from the router. Try to use a different browser or restart the computer may help to ensure you get a valid one.
- Router is not on factory original settings. If you have problems for login, reset the router to the original configuration and use the standard login credentials for your model.
