Verizon use 3 or 4 different routers when setting up FiOS.
The most common one being the Actiontec MI424-WR (or MI424WR) wireless router.
The 2 most common questions are always:
1. What’s the login information ?
2. How do I forward (open) ports on it.
I will make a quick guide on how to foward ports with the Actiontec MI424WR wireless router, but for now, here’s the default user name and password to log into the router.
Default IP: 192.168.1.1
Password: <router’s serial number> or <router’s mac address> – both found on the sticker that’s on the router.
Step by step:
1. Open your favorite web browser.
2. Navigate to 192.168.1.1
3. User: admin
4. Password: <router’s serial number> – if didn’t work put in the mac address
Note that the password is case sensitive.
Please be advised that the router offers a decent amount of settings, some are pretty advanced. If you don’t know what you’re doing, the best thing is not to mess with it.
