Routers can be configured from a computer to work properly and distribute the signal of a network efficiently. However, what if your computer is broke and you can’t ask for a laptop from your friend? Sometimes, situations like these happen and make you feel as if there is no way to go.
The only alternative left for those who want to access the device interface is to use a phone or tablet to change their network settings. In the following tutorial, find out how to access the router from a mobile phone to make changes to its settings. Therefore, if you were thinking there is no way of configuring your Belkin Router without a computer or laptop, then you were wrong. There is actually one way, and that too, a reliable one.
Step 1: You will need to connect your device to the network created by your router. If the device is new, the network name and password are standard and should be in the manual, or fixed stickers on the device.
Step 2: You need to find out the default gateway, which is the address of your router on the network. On iOS, this is in system settings, in connections. On Android, you will need to download apps like Ipconfig to accomplish this task.
Step 3: With your phone or tablet connected to the network, open your preferred browser and enter the router’s address. Confirm the login data. In most cases, the login and password are the same: admin (if not, consult the manual or your carrier).
Step 4: Once logged in, you will have access to the router configuration interface. They vary widely from router to router, but one thing will be constant: you will have to navigate between options patiently, using the zoom gesture to see options and properly configure the router.
Step 5: The setup procedure varies by the service provider and router model. Contact your service provider if you do not know the required specifications thoroughly.
Step 6: At the end of the procedure, you can force a reboot of the router by the phone to test your settings. Some routers also offer diagnostic features, which examine the state of the network and its settings, pointing out problems and errors.
That sums up the configuration of the router process without having a computer or laptop. If you think, you can perform the aforementioned steps without any issue, then that’s great. However, if you come across any problem, then you must remember that router help and support providers are always around the corner, so you can take help from them whenever required.
