To access a router’s control panel and change its configuration, you’ll need its IP address. Even if you don’t have a computer, you can easily view your router’s IP address from your iPhone or iPad.
With iOS being so functional, it’s common sense for the system to let you view such information. Needless to say, you will need to have the iOS device connected to the router’s Wi-Fi in order to view its IP.
How to view your router’s IP address from your iPhone or iPad
Here’s how to access this information in just a few quick steps.
Launch the Settings app and select Wi-Fi.
On the Wi-Fi screen, you will see all the surrounding Wi-Fi connections, including the one you’re currently connected to. Tap on the ‘i’ circle icon next to it to view additional info.
Now you will see various IP addresses, including the one for your current internet connection. However, for the purpose of this guide look at the one next to Router, as that’s the one you’re looking for.
That’s it! Now you can use your router’s IP address to access its admin panel and change its settings such as the Wi-Fi password or SSID among others. This stuff might have been something only technicians and network administrators would do, but now people are in general more tech-oriented so you might find this information handy someday.
