You start doubting on itself whether you are accessing the right webpage or not. Am I entering the wrong login password? How can I get the default password for the asus router?
It mostly happens due to understated reasons that may hinder your ASUS wifi’s internet access.
These reasons are:
- Internet Service issue
- Damaged Cables
- IP conflict problems
- Outdated Firmware
So, if you are wondering ‘How do I fix my ASUS WIFI router?’ then you need to try the following simple solutions.
Here is How to Fix ASUS WIFI router failed internetissue
First, we need to make sure what is causing the failed internet connection problem as it might be a technical issue. The issue can be due to a bad signal from your Internet service provider. Therefore, the first step you should try is to reboot your Asus router.
Here are the steps to reboot your router:
- Turn off the power button on your Asus router
- Unplug the router and let it stay off for minimum 2 to 3 minutes
- Turn the power back on and try accessing the internet
If it’s just a small technical issue then a simple reboot may resolve it. But if you try reconnecting but it still says ‘failed to access the internet’ then you might have to call your Internet service vendor.
You should try rebooting your Asus router 2-3 times before calling your Internet service provider regarding the issue.
2. Replace loose/damaged cables
If the problem is not due to bad signal then it may be due to faulty or damaged cables. Try unplugging the cables from your Asus router and check for any loss or damaged cables. If you notice any faulty cords you should replace them immediately.
3. Overheating issue
As the weather changes there may be problems with wiring due to overheating of the Asus router. Overheating may damage the router firmware as well. So, if you notice your router getting very hot just unplug it and let it cool down.
If any of the wires have been affected then you should replace them right away. Also try to relocate the router somewhere else where it won’t overheat due to the environment.
4. Resolve IP conflict issue
if ip for the asus routerand modem are the samethenthere might be an IP conflict between the two. So first use the ipconfig command in your command prompt to get your IP address and check if it matches the modem IP address.
In such cases, the best option is to replace the IP address to resolve the issue.
You can resolve the IP conflict by following these steps:
- Open a browser on your computer or laptop
- Go to URL bar and write the default router IP address 192.168.1.1 and press enter
- You should see a prompt asking for Username and password
- Enter your Username and password, then press login
- You will see admin panel, Now choose LAN from the menu
- Replace the IP configuration address with 10.0.0.1 and subnet mask with 255.0.0.0 and click apply.
The IP conflict issue should get resolved now. You can now try reconnecting to the internet and check if the ‘no internet’ issue persists.
5. Firmware update
Your Asus router would usually receive updates automatically but in case it failed to install new updates that might cause internet problems. So, if that’s the case you need to Login to your router firmware by using router.asus.com or the default IP address 192.168.1.1 and check for firmware updates. If an update is available, click install.
