Ever had to figure out the IP address of your or someone else’s wireless network so that you could change its settings? However, these days you need to login and at least setup a secure password for your WiFi network that is different than the one assigned by default. If you’re already connected to the wireless network, then it’s really easy to figure out the IP address of the router.
You can only determine the router IP address from a device that is connected over WiFi or from a device connected by cable (Ethernet). If you’re connected by wire or wirelessly, you can simply open the command prompt and run a simple command. Scroll down till you get to the heading that has Ethernet adapter Ethernet or Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi in the name. It’s worth noting that the default gateway is actually just the IP address for the router that connects to the Internet.
Now you can go ahead and type that address into your browser and you should be see the login page for your router. In my case, my default gateway is my Verizon Actiontec router that also acts as my wireless router.
However, if you cannot run the command prompt for some reason or you need to find more than one router on the network, then you need a network scanning tool.


However, you can still get some information about wireless networks you’re not connected to by using some third-party tools.
For example, let’s say you go to your school library and you know there is a wireless network there, but SSID broadcast is turned off for security reasons.
In order to download it, you have to fill out a bunch of info, but thankfully you can just make up everything and it’ll let you download it.
If you are connected to the network, it will be able to display the Gateway, DNS server, MAC address, etc. So to recap, you need to be connected via WiFi or Ethernet in order to figure out the IP address for the default gateway using the command prompt.
Lastly, if you have no connection to the network, you can still get basic information about wireless networks using a WiFi detection tool.

Most people setup their wireless networks right out of the box without any configuration and therefore have no idea what the IP address is.
Usually, you’ll only see one, but computers with WiFi cards and Ethernet cards will see two listings. In certain networks with more than one router, this might be the IP address of your ISP router, but not necessarily your wireless router.


Make sure to check out my previous post on how to scan your network for devices, which will show you not only how to get the IP address for all routers, but also for any other device connected to the network. They won’t be able to give you a lot of information, but it could help you find a hidden wireless network.
Even though it’s not secure at all, people use it to try and prevent others from connecting to their wireless network. If there is more than one router on your network, you’ll need to scan your network using the tools I mentioned in my previous post. The IP address of the wireless access point is the IP address that is listed for Default Gateway.
To detect more than one router, check out the link in the paragraph below on scanning your network for devices. WiFi Inspector is a program that can detect wireless networks even if SSID broadcast is turned off.
I graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, GA in 2002 with a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics.
