Many times during browsing, we come across messages that direct us to change DNS settings, proxy or WPS lock, DSL and WLAN settings to name a few; but only a few of us know where to fix them.

How To Reset Forgotten Router Username and Password:
It’s always better to first try with the default username and password. Now, you can either find them with the printed materials that accompanied your router, when you first bought it or simply on the router. In most cases, one can get them on the underside or base of the router. If you still can’t find them then just go through the website (192.168.1.1) of the router manufacturer’s company and you’ll find it by using a model or a serial number of the router.
If the first one doesn’t work or if you just remember changing the login credentials, just simply reset your router. Once you do so, your router goes back to default login credentials. The reset button that’s on the backside of the router is small enough to be only accessed by objects of the order of a pen or pencil lead and the button needs to be pressed for fifteen seconds.
Also, if your router is Universal Plug and Play enabled, then you don’t need the knowledge of login credentials and router settings screen automatically opens on entering the required 192.168.l.l IP address.
