Now, reasons why users face these issues often can be varied. The section further will discuss possible reasons behind the trouble users face and the ways you can troubleshoot the same.
Troubleshooting http://router.asus.com Not Working Issue
The router.asus.com may refuse to open due to various reasons. These may be:
- Using an incorrect web/IP address, and
- Device not connected to the router network.
Now, if you are using an incorrect web/IP address in the first place, you are likely to get an error while trying to access the login page. The correct web address and IP address details can be found on the product manual of the router or on the product label on the rear panel.
Furthermore, you should also check if the device that you are using to access the login page is connected to the router network or not. If not, connect to the same right away. You can use an ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router. If you are using a smartphone, make sure you are connected to the correct network. If you are still getting issues, check if the wired connections are loose somewhere.
Username and Password Related Issues
Using the correct login credentials to access the setup wizard is important. If you are using the login page for the first time, you can use the details mentioned on the product label. If you are logging in for a consecutive time, make sure you are using the credentials that you had changed earlier. However, if you have forgotten the same, there’s no other way around than performing a factory reset of your router. To factory RESET your router, you can follow the steps:
- Locate the RESET button on the side/rear panel of the router. You’ll find it concealed inside a small hole.
- Press and hold the same for about 5-7 seconds, or until the LEDs on the front panel begin to flash altogether. Once they do, release the button and wait for the router to reboot.
- Once the router reboots itself, you can follow the standard Asus router setup process to configure your router and begin using the internet once again.
