Trying to Change Router PW...
Hello--I'm trying to chagne the password on my Nighthawk AC1900 Router. When I got to routerlogin.net, I get a page that says "I'm not connected to my router". However, I am 100% sure I'm connected to the router (I'm looking in "network & internet settings" and my router is connected to my wifi) and I've cleared my cache as it recommeneded.
Anyone know what's going on and how I can correct it?

Is that accurate? "AC1900" is a speed, not a model number. Ever

_Which_ "the password"? Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in
your (actual) model number, and look for Documentation. Get the User
Manual. Look for "Types of Logins". Further reading might not hurt,

I'd bet real money that that is not exactly the message which you
saw. Copy+paste is your friend.
If the actual error message said something like "You are not
connected to your Router's WiFi network. [...]", then welcome to what
may be the worst error message in the world. For an explanation, try:
Briefly, the idea is that "[www.]routerlogin.net" (or ".com") should
point to your own router, but that's true only if you use your own
router for DNS name resolution. Regardless, you should be able to get
to the thing using its IP address, if you can determine (or guess) that.
Normally, that would be something like "192.168.1.1", but it could be
So, you should be able to use the router's LAN IP address.
Otherwise, you'd need to check/change the DNS server settings on
whatever the (unspecified) system is where you're running your
(unspecified) web browser.
