Asus is a well known name in the consumer technology field. They have laptops, they have smartphones, they also have routers. And if you own a router, you need to know how to control the network, so you can fix your problems instead of waiting for hours for a technician.
Like every other router, Asus offers a simple login interface. And, you need to know your login credentials. Even if you don’t know the IP address of your router, you can still access the admin page. Let’s see how:
Asus Router Login
- Connect a computer with the router through LAN cable. You can also use WiFi but it’s not as stable as a LAN connection.
- Open a browser on your computer.
- Enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. If it gives an error, type router.asus.com in the address bar.
- It will ask you for login credentials. Default username is admin and password is also admin.
- Click Login.
How to change login credentials?
Login credential is very important. Because, if it’s not secure enough, any one who is connected to your network can access the admin page. Accessing the admin page means controlling the whole system. To change your login credentials:
- Visit 192.168.1.1 or router.asus.com from your browser.
- Login to your account.
- Go to Administration.
- Click on System.
- In the router login name, enter your admin username.
- Type your new admin password and retype it.
- Click Apply to Save Changes.
How to change WiFi name and password on Asus router?

- Navigate to General > Network Map.
- Select the Network Type (2.4 Ghz / 5 GHz).
- In the SSID field, enter a new WiFi name if needed.
- Select Security as WPA2–Personal.
- In the WPA–PSK Key field, enter the password for your WiFi.
