Method 4 – How To Access Your Router From Outside Network

Hi there this is when i once again and welcome to rtt videocast so in todays video i am going. To show you how you can access your home router from different location so lets get started okay so let. Us assume im out of town and for some reason i want to access my home router so this is. How its going to look like i will take out my phone and turn on the mobile data then open.

Up any web browser of my choice and in the only box type in this special url and there we. Go as you can see i can access my router login page even though i am in a different city. But brenell– this is cool if youre a geek but why would an average user would do that what are. The use of it well surprisingly this is even useful even for a normal user and here are some use. Case for instance lets say you are a parent and want to check if your childrens are playing gaming a.

Pc instead of doing their homework so you can easily do that by going to the dhcp client list and. Then see the list of all the connected device similarly if you live with your roommates then you can remotely. Find out which one of your friends are at home since their smartphone will auto connect to the same network. Or if you find your neighbors still in your wi-fi then you can disconnect them from your network even when. You are not at home and finally if your router supports a usb drive like this one then you can.

Also connect an external hard drive to your router and then access all the content of the drive from all. Around the world i do this all the time when im away from my workstation now at this point some. Of you may be wondering well this can easily be done with the help of teamviewer or any similar remote. Desktop application so why should i play with the router instead and then youre right you can do this with. Jeans or any similar application but the biggest advantage of using this method is that if you are using deal.

Viewer then you will have to keep one host computer turn on all the time but in case of router. Brown tora all these turn on a 24 by 7 plus you dont have to install any software on either. Of the device all you need is a web browser and you can access your router from any device all. Around the world now this entire setup will take less than one minute but before we go into that we. Should first understand how exactly things are working here so for that let us take example of a typical home.

Network so lets say there are some devices which are connected to the internet with the router now as we. Know whenever a device is connected to the internet ip address is assigned to it so in this case the. Public ip address will be assigned to your router and your router will then assign local ip addresses to each. Of the connected device now here comes the interesting part anytime you want to access your router from the inside. Your network then you will have to type in the router ip address from the connected device however if you.

Want to access your router from outside the network then you will have to type your public ip address followed. By the remote control port number which is 8080 but there are two problems here one as a part of. Security measure every router by default has this remote access turn off and two well most home users are assigned. Dynamic ip address which means every time you restart your router your public ip address will also change so in. A nutshell if you want to access your router remotely then you will have to solve two problem one you.

Will have to turn on remote sharing from your router setting and second you will have to figure out a. Way to bypass this dynamic ip address for that we will use services like dynamic dns so lets take a. Look at this method one by one okay so turning on remove sharing is pretty simple start by logging into. Your router to do this you will need a default gateway now if you dont know how to find it. Simply open up your command prompt or terminal and type in the command that you can see on the swing.

Right now now the ip address next to the gateway is the routers ip address so simply copy it and. Then paste it in the only box of your browser next you will have to enter the user name and. Password again if you dont know what the user name and password are then simply ask the person who has. Set up your network okay now once you are in you may find your interface little bit different from mine. But the basics always remain same so here you will have to look for the option which says remote sharing.

Mine was under system tools but in case you do not find the sorption then you can always look for. The routers documentation i also get the same thing now once you are they simply enable the remote management and. Save changes by default the port number is 8080 but as a security measure you should definitely change that also. Remember to change your login credentials to something complicated or anyone can log into your network with simple brute-force attack. Now lets check it i will use my mobile data to make sure i am on a different network then.

Type in my public ip address followed by colon 8080 which is the port number for remote sharing and as. You can see here is the router page but there is one small problem how can you find your public. Ip address then you are not at home and also it keeps on changing every day so lets solve that. In part 2 now there are several companies that provides dynamic dns service and usually your router manufacturer has a. Tire with some of them so the best way to find out which service should i choose you should check.

The router page so here once you log into your router you should look for the option which says dynamic. Dns now in case your router do not support dynamic dns which is highly unlikely but in case if its. Not there then you can still get it working all you have to do is download the ip updater software. From these service itself and then put it on a computer which is turn on most of the time now. This router supports two service dn my dns and no ip now since the first one is paid only i.

Will go with no ip so go to yp.com and create a free account then add a new host name. And select the domain name of your choice if you dont you can use a custom domain name as well. But then you will have to pay for it so lets go with the free sub domain name for now. Here you can also download the ip updated software and put it on a frequently used computer now copy your. Domain name and paste it in the router settings and also enter your username and password that you have used.

By logging into the service and then save the changes now if i want to see my router from a. Different location all i have to do is type in the domain name that have used in no ip followed. By the port number which is 8080 and there we go now i can log into my router from any. Location well this is all for now like always give this video thumbs up leave a comment and subscribe to.

Method 5 – Use An Old Wifi Router As Repeater, Wifi Extender, Access Point

It was up my name is jannard and you are watching target pro what were going to do today is. That we are going to make this all wi-fi router useful were going to try and make this one as. A switch as an access point as an extender or repeater the case might be you have upgraded your wi-fi. Router so you have this old wi-fi router sitting there you set aside you might think youre not going to.

Use it anymore or maybe your isp your internet service provider upgraded that wi-fi router or modem the insole out. Your house so you have that extra one you can still use this one as an access point extender repeater. Or a switch lets try and see our old wi-fi router its cisco lynx is e 2000 and lets try. To see the switch ports these are actually switch ports where we plug our computer our laptop to share the. Internet this is where we plug in our internet cable where the internet comes in and its going to be.

Shared with our home network this internet port that we have here on other routers this is labeled as well. Now were going to make use of this one as a switch or an access point we are just going. To ignore this one dont like anything here because this is what makes this wi-fi router our router now if. We ignore this one were just going to do a few modifications with this wi-fi router and this will work. As a access point a switch or repeater which of those who want it to be it will work this.

Would be my new router its actually cisco lynx is a 1200 and it has the same port orientation with. The other one were just going to plug our internet here and then were going to share the internet with. Our other home network devices but we are going to connect another cable to our other router here so thats. What were going to do im just going to plug the internet here this will be my one port were. Not going to do anything with that what were worried right now is how were going to configure this one.

But i just want to show you how we can set this one up so since this is my main. Router im just to plug one people one of these local area network ports or what i call a switch. Port plug it here and then get my older outer this is my older router im just going to plan. Any of this one one two four ports just ignore this internet port or one part of your router but. Whatever other youre using so im just going to plug it here and were going to power this one up.

Just so i showed you how you can connect this one since this is an old router we need to. Do a hard reset here so that this old router will go to a factory default setting and we can. Start configuring this one whatever your router is you just try to find that mark where it says reset now. You have a little holder you just need something that you can pin you can push into like what i. Have here i can push it there now just observe the link lights that you are there and at the.

Same time at the back of this one im just going to press the reset button here once i press. That one you observe the light it will change you can see a blue light there in a power light. There you can see its starting to blink faster fast enough and then you see those lights come up and. Then once thats gone you can release this one and it will reboot itself and then this one will already. Be on its factory default setting so we can configure it already now that we have we did a reset.

Here were just going to plug another cable into a router go into our laptop so that we can access. This router and configure those configurations we did so this is my cable and im going to plug it to. My laptop here so we can start we need to access our wireless router with the ip address of this. Device so what were going to do is go to cmd and then type in ip config lets locate the. Ethernet adapter and look for the default gateway we have you see here ethernet adapter ethernet this is the adapter.

Where the wireless router is connected to and we can see the default gateway 192.168.1.1 now were going to open. Our browser just go ahead and open up your browser and type in this one into 192.168.1.1 press enter you. Will be prompted with the login most routers go with username is admin and password as admin but if it. Doesnt work for you google is your friend just go ahead and google the model number of that wireless router. And ask for the default username and password so for us lets type in admin and admin log in and.

Were inside this wireless router there you go since we are here on the setup page lets just go ahead. And scroll down here and you can see the dhcp server we need to disable this dhcp server because they. Hcp servers are enabled on wireless routers so if we have two dhcp server running on the same network well. Be having problems with our network because we have our main router now this is our old router so we. Need to disable this one so that it would stop giving ip address so our new router will be the.

One to give those ip addresses to our devices if youre already set that one we can save this one. First lets do it one setting at a time so that we are not going to be confused now the. Next thing were going to do is we need to change the ip address of this wireless router because by. Default most routers use one and two one six eight dot one dot one as the default ip address where. We can access this one in configure so if we have two devices that have same ip address on same.

Network well be having problems also that why we need to change the ip address of this one from we. Can start from that too we can change this one from that too up to 254 so im going to. Choose the last ip address to put here that would be 254 since i know no ones using this one. And then im going to save this one again now your configuration changes has been set you will be returned. To the previous page after several seconds now this will refresh in a few seconds and it will give us.

The ip address we changed to earlier that is to y 4 on our browser so were going to wait. For a few seconds now it has already refresh and it has changed into our 192.168.255.255 done again so you. Can see its changed so this will not be conflicting to our main router now that thats change like what. Ive said our wireless router can already be used as a switch we can use those extra switch ports to. Plug in other devices we want to now that were done with the configuration of the ip address and turning.

That dhcp server off go ahead to the wireless configuration and we can start configuring this one as our access. Point already click on wireless we can go for manual and if you want this one to be a repeater. You can use the same ssid that your new router is using so that your users do not need to. Really kate to this access point we have configured in our case lets just put here turaga pro here on. The channel just leave it as auto so that it will automatically change the channel if it detected interference with.

Other devices but if you are sure with which channel you are using you can change this one from 1. To 13 now the ssid enable so thats it we can save this one now that were done with the. Wireless setup its time to configure the wireless security this is a set to disabled if you want to authenticate. Our users we can select lets just go for wpa2 personal and then type in our password lets just go. For taurogi pro as our password for the sake of this tutorial save this one this wireless router is now.

An access point its not a router its not being used as a router already its an access point a. Switch it can be a repeater and extender depending on how you want it to be just make sure to. Do the configuration on your router this wi-fi routers does not have the same interface when you configure them just. Make sure to remember to change the setting that we have changed the ip address of the two wireless router. The dhcp server should be turned off you can go ahead and you can configure the wireless settings and everything.

Should work fine now if you think i have missed something on this tutorial just drop a comment below if. Its your first time my youtube channel dont forget to subscribe once again this is toro go pro and until. Next time goodbye.
