Dlink router login:
Logging into a D-Link wireless router can be accomplished in several ways.
We'll be going over each login method so you can setup and configure your router.
This will allow you to login whether your at home or on the road using your laptop or wireless enabled smart phone.
We'll be logging into a D-Link wireless router by wired connection, wirelessly and using a remote management connection.
This will give you the ability to make changes to your wireless home network while you're located beyond the reaches of your home networks Wi-Fi signal range.
Let's get started:
In this example we'll be using the setup and configuration pages for a D-Link DIR300 series wireless router. Your Dlink router may be a slightly different design and or model, but the basic concepts are the same and the menu's should look very similar.
Wired router login:
The most common method used for dlink router login is by direct connection, because the average consumer only accesses the router configuration pages during its initial setup process and never thinks about it again.
To open a dlink router login box by wired connection requires that you create a physical connection between your wireless router and a working PC or laptop using an Ethernet cable.
It should be seated securely in the RJ45 port of the router.
Wireless router login:
If your D-Link wireless router has previously been setup, you can access your dlink login box wirelessly by opening a web browser typing in your Dlink Router IP Address.
We'll be using the browser to access the D-Link router.
The router login box will appear on the screen, asking you to enter a username and password. The username should be "admin" and the password should be left blank for most models of dlink routers.
If the username and password credentials are incorrect, and you want to see a list of default Dlink Router Password credentials for most common wireless routers we do support.
Remote router login:
D-Link wireless routers also have the ability to setup remote access to your routers configuration pages in case you need to access them while on the go.
TIP: When setting up remote access it is extremely important to change the D-Link router default settings for the Username and Password, because once remote management is enabled, it will become available to anyone in the world who knows its D-Link External IP Address.
FYI: Keep in mind that when traveling on the road, if you're not using a "Static IP" address you will probably not be able to login remotely, because the hotspots DHCP server will most likely assign you a different address then the one you set in your routers configuration.
Login over the Internet:
To be able to login remotely to your D-Link wireless router it's important that you know the D-Link External IP Address of your router.
TIP: The external IP address and the port number 8080 is what you need for the dlink remote login.
That's it! You now know several ways to access your dlink router login box from anywhere in the world.
