Objective

All Cisco routers have built-in Web-based Setup pages that allow the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties. This document explains the steps for accessing the Cisco VPN Router's Web-Based Setup page.

Applicable Devices

This document is applicable to all Cisco VPN Routers

Accessing the web-based setup page of Cisco VPN Routers

Note: Before accessing the router's Web-based Setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router.

Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page

Step 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.


Step 2. Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP Address 192.168.1.1 is the default IP of most Cisco routers then press Enter.

Note: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by either:

  •  Running the router's setup CD.
  •  Changing it on the router's Web-based Setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can either:

  • Check the router's IP address in the administration guide of the respective router.
  • Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.

Note: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and the username and password will be admin after resetting.

A new window will prompt for a Username and Password, type admin for both fields (this is the default username and password), then click OK.

Note: If the username and password of the router has been changed, type the router's new username and password on both fields instead. In case you forget the router login, you can reset the router.  This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and the username and password will be admin after resetting. 

If the computer is having problems accessing the router's Web-based Setup page, make sure the computer is connected properly to the router.
