One of the biggest issues that people face is with the router admin settings. Users are not able to login the router admin panel. There can many issues behind it like typing the wrong IP address for accessing the admin panel. For example: many users log in 10.0.0.0.1 to access their router’s settings which may or maynot be true as it can lead them to an error, so getting the IP address right is very important.
A router’s login admin settings is a way to change a lot of the important settings in a network like
Changing the router’s proxy settings
Configuring the DNS also called Domain Name Server
Setting the DHCP Client: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol that allows assigning the address to a computer or a node
Access to change wireless function settings like important credentials
Access the MAC address and set security settings to WPA or WPA2
