How To Log Into a Verizon FIOS Router?
- What are the essentials for Login
- Verizon Fios Router Login
- Reset Verizon Fios Router
- Change Verizon FiOS WiFi Network name and password
When it comes to Log into Verizon Fios router, we need two things: a Verizon Fios compatible router and a device (computer, mobile, or tablet).
We’ll do it in four easy steps. Let’s plunge into them one-bye-one.
Step 1: Connection
First off, we connect our Verizon Fios router to the FIOS network. And, this step can be done using either a WiFi connection or wired.
Step 2: Browser & IP address
Now we’ll open our favorite web browser (mine is chrome) and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your browser and hit enter. After that, you’ll see a login screen.
Step 3: Username & Password
The default Username of your FIOS router is admin, while the password can be located on the router’s side.
Congrats! You’re logged in!
Step 4: Password changing (optional)
It’s always better to have a strong password for your FIOS router. Once you logged in, you need to set a strong password so that nobody can access your router configuration. So, I recommend changing the default password. For that, check the ‘Admin Password’ option in the navigation.
How to reset your Verizon FIOS router?
If you’ve forgotten your Verizon FIOS router’s administrator password, you should reset it. We can reset it within a few steps.
Step 1: Power On
Please turn on your router and check whether it is working correctly or not.
Step 2: Reset Button
It’s time to look for the reset button located on the back of your router.
Step 3: Reset Now!
It’s a final step in which we reset our FIOS router by using a pen or paper clip. You need to press the button for at least fifteen seconds until your router automatically resets and powers back on itself.
Congrats! We’ve successfully changed the forgotten password to its factory defaults and other customized settings.
