If for any reason you can't retrieve the router's IP address using that method, we've compiled a brief list of popular router brands and their common default addresses.

Common default usernames include variations of admin (Admin, administrator, etc.), and the password is often admin, password, or simply left blank -- needless to say, it's good practice to change these upon setup.
