Buying a router can be a complicated process. There are many brands and models, all with different specifications that aren’t always easy to understand. You then have to consider your own needs, with some routers explicitly designed for gaming or businesses with multiple internet users. The best router for your needs will depend on several factors, including:
With the above tips, you have brought your new router to meet your specifications and connected it up, and now have access to the internet, and for some people, that’s enough. However, by accessing your router’s interface with its IP address, you can open yourself up to new opportunities and get your money worth out of your router. Some things you probably didn’t know you can do with your router, though subject to the actual router you have purchased, include:
Keep your network security secure with your router’s security protocols. Router manufacturers take security seriously, and so should you. Make sure your network gets protected with the provided security features.
Setting up a proxy server, which can provide extra security, while also allowing you to view content restricted by location.
Every router you ever purchase comes with an IP address, and it is this string of numbers that get used for accessing your router’s interface. However, the IP address is more than that. Your router’s IP address helps the internet send and receive information, just like your home address ensures you get your mail. The most common version of an IP address is the IPv4 or IP version 4, which is a set of four numbers, separated by a period. Each of the four numbers can range from 0 to 255. You do need to know this number to set up your router, which is why we at Router Admin have listed the most popular ones below
Your router may not use one of these numbers, and if that is the case, you can usually find the IP address of your router on the base of the unit. Alternatively, Router Admin has guides to help you find your IP address
The guides and tools offered here at Router Admin ensure that anyone, no matter their experience with computers, can make the most of their routers. Just some things that Router Admin can help you do include:
With Router Admin by your side, you can take your internet network to a whole new level. Doing so helps to ensure your internet experience, whether browsing, gaming, or streaming, is optimized.
