You must make sure that you are making no typing mistakes while typing the URL in the address field of the browser. Check the URL after typing it. Only when you are sure it is right, you need to hit enter.
Since we have mentioned to type the URL in the address field, make very certain that the search bar is not used for this purpose.
2. Fix the Browser
The browser that you have put to use to log in to your router should be an updated one. Get it updated right away if it isn’t already. Use the settings and update it. While you are in the settings, consider to clean the cache and cookies as well. Is the routerlogin not working even on an updated browser?
3. Connect to the Right Network
In order to log in to your Netgear Nighthawk router, you must use a device that’s connected to its network. So, connect the PC to the router’s network using WiFi or make a LAN connection now and then try to log in using the login URL.
4. Check the LAN Connection
One possibility that the PC is not getting connected to the router’s network is that the router is not connected properly to the modem. This connection plays an important role in router’s functioning. Mend the connection right away by examining the LAN cable thoroughly. You should also have a look at the ports. See to it that the ports are clean and non damaged.
If you have connected your router to the modem in a wireless manner then ensure placing the router within the boundary line of the modem.
5. Examine Power Connection
A poor power connection can also be responsible for why you can’t login to your router. Check the cable and the socket in use and fix anything that’s wrong. Once the router is fully powered up and is connected to the consistent power supply, log in to your router by connecting to its network.
