You can understand about "Dashboard login failure reason of NETGEAR router". Then you don't have to concern about NETGEAR router settings.


Dashboard login failure of AP mode NETGEAR router

First I explain about login failure of AP mode NETGEAR router.

For example, R7000's document says that dashboard URL is following.

  • http://www.routerlogin.net/
  • http://www.routerlogin.com/


If it is router mode, it has fixed IP address. So we can access with IP address like 192.168.0.1.

But in case of bridge (AP) mode, we need these URL to access dashboard.


When login is succeeded, it shows dasboard like below.

But sometimes it redirects us to another WEB page.

Destination URL is

https://www.netgear.com/home/services/routerlogincom/

It explains about login. Then it recomends to install mobile application.

But mobile application doesn't solve issue.

In my case, it was completely useless...


We want to access dashboard, but it moves us another page.

It is so annoying for user.

Why did this issue happen ?



Dashboard login failure reason of NETGEAR router

So why we fail to login to dashboard of NETGEAR router ?


It is due to DNS.

DNS considers destination of http://www.routerlogin.net/ as https://www.netgear.com/home/services/routerlogincom/.


So in order to solve it, we can disconnect internet (WAN side) temporary.

In case of AP mode, NETGEAR machine works as bridge to other router.
So network image is like following.

APmode network

PC ... [NETGEAR(AP)] ... [main Wifi router]---[internet]
(...:wireless ---:wired)


Then disconnect WAN side.

Disconnect WAN

PC ... [NETGEAR(AP)] ... [main Wifi router]-/disconnect/-[internet]
(...:wireless ---:wired)


So router doesn't check internet DNS, and we can access dashboard with using http://www.routerlogin.net/.

After changing settings, connect to WAN.




Conclusion

Today I explained about "Dashboard login failure reason of NETGEAR router".

Reason of the issue is that DNS redirects us to other page.

In order to solve it, we can disconnect LAN cable from WAN side.

Disconnect WAN

PC ... [NETGEAR(AP)] ... [main Wifi router]-/disconnect/-[internet]
(...:wireless ---:wired)


Then we can access dashboard with using http://www.routerlogin.net/.
