C6300 Can’t access routerlogin.net

Hi,

I need to update my wifi password which I was able to do through routerlogin.net previously but the website doesn’t seem to exist and the net gear pages throw me into a loop with no actual solution. The C6300 isn’t covered by the Nighthawk app and I can’t find where to access the same tabs that used to exist on routerlogin.net, on the net gear website that it continues to direct me to. Any help is appreciated

   "seem"?

   I have no idea what that means.

 

   None of that is a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

   Should I be able to guess what that might be?

 

   Have you tried "192.168.0.1" or "192.168.100.1"?  Or the obvious?:

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read?

@antinode:

 

It's quite hilarious that the likes of you could be considered a "guru" around here. Low standards are a plague to every community. A monkey could take your place in this forum, and no one would notice the difference.

 

> "seem"?

 

Do you have trouble understanding basic English words?  I'd teach you how to use a dictionary if you were capable of it.

 

> I have no idea what that means.

 

Well, OP did say that the "Netgear pages" threw them into a loop. A person with average reasoning skills would deduce that OP tried looking through some online articles and couldn't find their answer. But I think average reasoning skills are a bit too much to expect from you.

You seem like you couldn't "guess" what 2+2 is.

Oh look, even you can occasionally give some useful advice. I guess even crap has some value.

 

Your response would've been more concise if you left out the snarky, condescending comments. But who am I kidding? People like you (the products of lazy parenting) love to hear yourselves talk. The reason is that no one with self-respect would listen to you any more than they need to, unless they were insulting you, which must happen often.

   Are you volunteering?

Am I volunteering to replace you with a monkey? I'm not sure if that would be a fair trade for the monkey community. We get one of them, but all they get is you. It seems like trade-up for us and a trade-down for them.

There is no "website" as most people understand it. Netgear certainly does not use that description, probably to avoid confusing users. That address should take you to the browser graphical user interface (GUI) for your device.

 

What happens when you try to get into routerlogin.net?

 

What is this "loop"?

 

Try this:

 

How do I log in to my NETGEAR wireless router? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

and this:

 

If you cannot login to your router | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Nighthawk WiFi Routers. (This is easily done, given Netgear's complicated community structure.)

Many questions apply to different types of device, so you might get responses here, but you might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:

Cable Modems & Routers

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

   By "most people", he means himself.  But, in any case, a description
like "the website" or "the net gear pages" or "the net gear website
[...]" is too vague to be useful.

I don't see your reply to my latest insult, which was written in 2021-04-14 22:28 PST. Perhaps you did write one, but it got filtered without you knowing. Can you see it in a private browser window (or Incognito Mode)? If you can't, then I can't.

Don't waste your breath. As you can see, antagonism mode is permanently turned on over there.

 

Stick with trying to troubleshoot your problem. Swapping insults is a waste of everyone's time.

 

There are still a lot of unknowns about what is going on at your end. Here are some pointers:

 

How do I log in to my NETGEAR wireless router? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

and this:

 

If you cannot login to your router | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

Then there is the "loop with no actual solution". That too is thin on details. Here is another one to try to elicit more information from you:

 

There is a bug in Netgear's implementation of password recovery on some devices. You can get locked into a closed loop.

 

Is this what you mean?


If password recovery is enabled, but you have not set the answers to the questions, it keeps sending you back to the beginning of the process. If you haven't already given the thing your personal answers, they are not in its memory and it has no way of knowing if they are correct.


If the standard factory password (password) does not work, then you will have to factory reset the thing to get back to that. Then either disable password recovery (check the manual for your device) or provide some answers to those questions.

Re: C6300 Can’t access routerlogin.net

One member suggested using Firefox instead of Chrome and type in the IP address 192.168.0.1. It worked.

That is a standard strategy that Netgear mentions in its KnowledgeBase article:

 

How do I log in to my NETGEAR wireless router? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

and this:

 

If you cannot login to your router | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

You will also find this in the manuals for most devices.

 

I chip in only to point out that the exact address depends on the device you are using.

 

192.168.0.1 tends to be a modem address while for routers it is 192.168.1.1.

 

Some devices, plain cable  modems for example, can have 192.168.100.1 as a default.

 

As this section of the Netgear community is supposed to be for routers, rather than the modem router mentioned in the subject, I wouldn't want anyone to rush off on a wild goose chase.

   Did that change matter?

   As suggested in the first reply, above?

   "192.168.0.1" was the norm for a modem+router until recent models,
like the CAX series, which also use "192.168.1.1".  (I haven't seen an
explanation for the change.)  A simple modem tends to use neither
"192.168.0.1" nor "192.168.1.1".

 

   A DOCSIS (cable) modem or modem+router should be accessible at
"192.168.100.1", even when in modem-only mode.


   The DM200 DSL modem+router, when in modem-only mode, should be
accessible at "192.168.5.1".  (Dxxxx DSL modem+router models have no
such feature.)
