In this quick guide, you will learn the steps how you can find out the address of your router at the lowest efforts.

Firstly, try to enter three following IP addresses in your Internet browser and see if you will continue to the router management interface. The following IP addresses correspond to 90% of the routers that are currently used at the consumer market. If instead of opening of the router management page, you will be redirected to the search results again or you will see a blank page, then, probably, your router do not using this IP address.
