The IP address 192.168.2.1 is just another of the IP addresses used by router manufacturers as a default one for their routers. In this case we are talking about Belkin, one of the more popular router brands. We don’t know the reason why Belkin has decided to use this IP instead of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 other manufacturers use, but there is no difference whatsoever.
The IP 192.168.2.1 belongs to the same range of private addresses as the two IP’s we have mentioned before. Additionally, other router manufacturers like Edimax, Dynex or SMC use the same router login IP.
However, in case you are using a Belkin router, or one of the brands stated above, and after checking the Default gateway you see that it isn’t 192.168.2.1, there is nothing to worry about. It means that you or someone else has changed it. Hopefully the default username or password weren’t changed or you would have a problem logging in.
Belkin router login details
Logging into a router having this IP address as its default one is the same as with others. The only difference would be in the username and password and the router’s settings page will look different depending on the brand.
Belkin generally doesn’t offer a default password (Dynex does this too) , so when you get to the login window just click Submit to login. However, it is recommended to set up a new password for security purposes. In order to change the Belkin default password read more here – How to change Belkin router password.
Other routers using 192.168.2.1
On the other hand other router brands with 192.168.2.1 as a default IP such as Edimax and SMC Networks set up a default username and password for their routers so if you are having one of these the default username/password combinations are:
Hopefully these login combinations will let you login to your router. However, if you have problems logging in because the admin password has been already set up or changed, you can either try other login combinations or, if that doesn’t help, reset your router. This will erase all your previous settings and for that reason this is the last option in our efforts to successfully login to the router.
