Having trouble reaching the routerlogin page?

Whether you are trying to access your wireless router setup for the first time or just trying to view your current Wi-Fi Password from a previous setup, you will need to access the routers administrative console. Sometimes the admin console is referred to as the routers hidden page.

If you can not reach the login page, it may be due to:
