Most gateway routers used by home customers are probably not secure, and some routers are so vulnerable to attack that they should be thrown out. Routes are the essential part of modern computer networking, but only a few home users realize they are also computers, with their own operating system, software, and problems.

A compromised router can spy on you.

Do you know that many people don’t change the password they get from the internet provider? Today I want to help you with this step. It is easy, yet important.

Home broadband routers have two IP addresses – one for connecting outside to the Internet and one for communicating inside the home network. Your internet provider supplies a public IP address for the outside connection. The private IP address used for the local network is operated by the home network admin and has a default setting which is depending on the brand and model of router.

Internet providers supply a public IP address for the outside connection; the number assigned depends fully on the provider and has no one default value. The private IP address used for local networking is controlled by the home network administrator and has default settings depending on the brand and model of router.

If you want to change the password for your home network, you should know the model and brand of the modem. All the information are on the device or in the manual. Just type the router info in the browser and the manufacturer will show you the default local IP address, also called default gateway address.

Easy? Yes, it is. If you are lucky and log in router’s browser interface, now you can change the password via the instruction you get on the manufacturer website.

Sometimes you have a bad day.

You typing the combinations of 192.168.x.x. but you it doesn’t work. We all have been there. When that happens, you can find the information with a simple command on Windows. Open the command prompt (Start > Search for cmd) and then enter this simple command – ipconfig. The address you need to know is in the line called Default Gateway — it will often begin with 192.168.
