In an ever-evolving world, we have battened ourselves with something as vast and infinite as the universe: Technology!

This enormous piece of technology is the basis on which the majority of the world runs. Need an answer? Go to the internet. Want to find the perfect dress for your birthday party? You know the answer! Now that everything has moved to the virtual world, everyone should have home network security.
One such appliance that can simultaneously support numerous devices’ internet needs is the router. A router or a modem is something we don’t pay much attention to in our everyday lives. But have you ever given attention to the thought that you might want to configure a router’s settings according to your needs?
Well, this article is just going to make you realize the same. 192.168.0.30 is a private IP address that has been allotted to routers/modems of very popular brands. But what is an IP?

To know more, let’s get into the details.

Sometimes, you’d wish you had kept a different name or a different passcode for your WiFi network. But would you contact a technician to do that? You don’t need to! Here are three easy steps that will get you to your router’s login panel:
- First of all, please make sure that you have connected your WiFi router/modem to your PC/laptop correctly. Keep in mind that you can connect both through a LAN network or even a wired ethernet connection. But for us technicians strongly suggest you do it with the latter setting.
- Now that you have done all of the above open a web browser of your choice. It may be Chrome, Firefox, or even Edge! Later type in 192.168.0.30 into the location bar of the browser.
- If you’ve correctly performed all the steps above, you’d be seeing a user login panel on your PC.

What To Do If I Forget The Router’s User ID And Passcode?
Remembering the passcodes of all your accounts on social media or of your devices is often troublesome. So what if you forget one or two? Let’s look at how you can regain access to the user panel in case you forget the credentials.
The only way to log in if you can’t recall the credentials is to reset the router. First, locate a tiny hole at the rear of your router. Take a sharp-edged tool (like a safety pin or a toothpick) and poke it in the hole continuously for not more than thirty seconds. Soon after you’ve done that, you will see that the router switches off and then back on again.
If, by chance, it doesn’t work, there’s an alternative. First, jab the tool into the hole and hold for thirty seconds, then disconnect the router from your PC for thirty seconds. Then replug it and hold it for a span of thirty more seconds. This must do the work just fine to reset the credentials for the IP address 192.168.0.30.
How Do I Troubleshoot Router Errors?
Occasionally, the router might produce some errors or issues, and you might think of contacting a technician. But don’t worry, most of the time you can solve them by yourself!
- One of the silliest mistakes that a user might commit is entering the wrong IP onto the location bar. Make sure you enter 192.168.0.30 correctly and don’t mistake 0 for ‘O’ or 1 for ‘I.’ Also, cross-check if you have entered the periods at the right positions and there aren’t any special characters.
- Double-check and make sure you connect the router to the PC properly. See if the lights of the power, ethernet, internet, and WiFi indicators are blinking/ turned on.
- If you have forgotten the passcode/user ID, then try resetting as disclosed in the areas mentioned earlier.
- Look up the firewall settings on your PC. It might be preventing access to the internet. So disable it.
- As simple as it may sound, try restarting the router as it may mend any technical errors in the router.
These will solve the majority of the issues that you might be facing.
