In many cases, being able to access your internet router can help resolve many network issues. But in some instances, the address of the router may not be made known either due to misconfiguration or simply that the router's address was not provided. In such cases, it is still possible to find out the router by finding out the gateway address.


The gateway is the point that identifies your network or computer on the internet. Other computers and servers on the internet recognize your computer or network as the address that is defined by the gateway. On your home network, the gateway is usually your router. By finding out the address of the router, you will be able to make changes to your router settings or other troubleshooting steps when required.
