Connecting To The Router’s Network Using The Ethernet Cable
You can connect your Verizon router to your PC using an Ethernet cable by following these steps:
- Power on your Verizon router and PC.
- Locate the Ethernet ports on both your router and PC. You can use any of the LAN ports on your router. On your PC, the Ethernet port is usually located on the back of the desktop case or the side of the laptop.
- Take an Ethernet cable and plug one end into one of the Ethernet ports on your router and the other end into the Ethernet port on your PC.
- Wait for your PC to recognize the network connection.
- Your Verizon router should automatically configure your PC with the appropriate network settings, including IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
Once your PC is connected to your Verizon router, you should be able to access the internet and any other devices connected to your network.
Find The Router’s Default IP Address
|Router Model||Admin URL||IP address|
|Verizon Fios Router (Model G3100)||mynetworksettings.com||https://192.168.1.1|
|Fios Quantum Gateway||myfiosgateway.com||https://192.168.1.1|
|Fios Advanced Wi-Fi Router||/||http://192.168.1.1|

|D-Link 2750B Wireless Gateway||/||http://192.168.1.1|
|Actiontec GT784WNV Wireless Gateway||/||http://192.168.1.1|
As you can see from the table above, Verizon routers use http://192.168.1.1 as a default IP address, but depending on the router model, you can also use:
However, if http://192.168.1.1 doesn’t work, you can find the IP on your own using the:
Command Prompt On Windows – Launch the Command prompt by pressing the Windows logo button on the keyboard and in the search bar type CMD. After you hit the Enter key, the Command Prompt will open.
Type the ipconfig command and after you hit the Enter key again, find Default Gateway in the results. That is the router’s IP address.
iPhone – To find your router’s IP address, first tap on Settings, then tap on Wi-Fi and select the blue info icon next to the network name that you are currently connected to. After that, scroll down until you reach the Router section, where you will be able to see the router’s IP address.
Android – To find your router’s IP address, open the Settings app, select Wi-Fi, then choose the Wi-Fi network you’re connected to. Next, scroll down and look for the IP Address section to find your router’s IP address.
*The steps may vary slightly depending on the specific make and model of your Android phone.
Opening the Router’s Login Page
At this point, you can continue accessing your Verizon router settings.
Open Your Web Browser
Open the web browser you use most frequently on your computer or smartphone.
The most recommended ones by different router companies are Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.
Enter The Verizon Router’s IP Address or Admin URL
In the web browser’s URL bar type the Verizon router IP address https://192.168.1.1 or use the Admin URL depending on the router model you are using:
· mynetworksettings.com for Verizon, Verizon Fios (Model G3100), Verizon Internet Gateway (ARC-XCI55AX).
· http://my.router for 5G Home Internet Routers
· myfiosgateway.com for Fios Quantum Gateways
Press the Enter key or tap on Go/Return. You should see the router login page now.

Enter The Verizon Router Login Credentials
At this point, you should be asked to enter the admin username and password. Use the ones listed in the table above or from the router label and click on Login after you enter them.
Default Verizon Login Credentials
Most Verizon routers use admin as a default username, but for the password, you will have to check the label on the router. It has the password printed on it and named as: Network Settings Password, Admin Password, Administrator Password, Default Password
IMPORTANT: The admin password can be changed easily. So if you don’t know the default one or the one printed on the router label doesn’t work, you will have to factory reset your Verizon router in order to use the default one.

A question we often see is whether you can use a VPN on a Verizon router.
Based on the information we have at the moment, Verizon routers do not have settings that will allow you to connect to a VPN service itself. If you want to use VPN for router you will have to do it on a connected device like a third-party router.
