Get Router or Modem IP Address

When router or modem connects to network it assigns to itself specific IP address. This IP address could be used to connect to the router/modem and administer it. Also other devices on the network use this address to connect to the router or modem.

Below are simple steps on how to find your router/modem IP address on your Windows machine.

If you're working from Linux or Unix machine you can type:

ip route | grep default

There you should look for a line like:

default via dev eth0 proto static

If you're on Mac launch Terminal. There type

netstat -nr | grep default

And look for a line with IP address in it. It will look similar to this: default via dev eth0 proto static
