Every router has its own IP address which you can use to log in to its admin dashboard. The default IP address for the Nighthawk routers is 192.168.1.1. You use this IP address to log in and reach your router’s settings and make modifications here. If you are facing issues while logging in to your router using the IP address, then there are a few troubleshooting hacks that can help. These hacks have been discussed in this very guide. Walking through them will be helpful.
How to Fix Nighthawk Router IP Not Working Issue?
Before getting started, it is suggested that you check the power supply to the router. A fluctuating power supply can be responsible for this. Thus verify the same and ensure that the router is receiving a consistent power supply from its socket.
Also, fix the connection between the router and modem. Even after getting this done, if you can not log in, try the hacks given below:
1. Use an Alternative Way to Login
Till now you were trying to access the router login page using the IP address. We now want you to try using the web address routerlogin.net or routerlogin.com to log in. Are you facing the same issues while using the URL as well?
Another way to have access to the Nighthawk login is to use the Nighthawk app. If the issue persists with app also, then give a shot at the troubleshooting tips given further.
2. Connect to Correct Network
You must make sure that your computer, laptop or smartphone is connected to the router’s network to access the login page. Perhaps this is where you went wrong. See if another WiFi connection is in use. Connect to the router’s WiFi using its SSID or use an Ethernet cable to connect it to a computer/laptop.
3. Use an Alternative Internet Browser
If one internet browser is giving you trouble, try logging in using an alternative browser that you have installed on your PC. In case it is Google Chrome you used previously, put to use Mozilla Firefox now.
4. Fix the Browser
If changing the browser could not resolve the problem, then update the browser in use. An older version might be causing problems. Consider updating it right now to the most recent version.
Moreover, clear the cache, cookies, and browsing history from it to have a better performance from it. You need to access the settings of the browser to update it and clean it of junk data.
5. Disable VPN/Firewall/Antivirus
At times, VPN or firewall enabled on your PC stops certain online jobs like loading a web page. This could have happened for you as well and hence you are facing login issues. You must try disabling this software for the time being and then try to access the Netgear Nighthawk router login page.
Do not, however, forget to enable them once the job is done.
6. Reboot the Router
If you are still stuck with the same login issues using the IP address, then you should try to reboot your Nighthawk router to eliminate any software glitches that could be hindering the login process and smooth functionality of your router. To reboot your router, try this:
- Remove the connection between the router and modem.
- Turn off the router from its power button.
- Unplug its power cable.
- Wait for 5 minutes minimum.
- Plug the cable back and turn the router on.
Try to log in to it now.
To Briefly Conclude
We are hoping that you are now able to access the Netgear Nighthawk router login page using the IP address. In case you failed to log in even now, consider resetting your router and restore the factory settings on it. To reset, press the button labeled Reset using a sharp pointed object like a paper clip. The router must be powered on while you are performing a reset. Once done, the router would be running on the default settings. Once again set it up from scratch and now you would no longer be bothered by any login issues.
