How to Access PLDT Router Settings Plus Troubleshooting Tips

I understand that not all of us are technically inclined and I know how frustrating it is when we’re having issues with our PLDT internet connection.

But don’t worry. Today, I’ll be your guide to all your PLDT Router concerns and I’ll do my best to address your questions about PLDT router access and basic troubleshooting steps.

The common question that I get is how to access PLDT router.

This is a very good question because knowing how to access your own PLDT router allows you to do many things including:

  • Checking your router’s internet status and network activities
  • Changing your PLDT WIFI name (SSID) and password
  • Setting the bandwidth control of devices that are connected to the same network
  • Setting device access restrictions
  • Setting the time of your children’s online access (Parent Control)
  • Routing an IP address and port number to network requests to specific devices (Port forwarding)

These terms might be a jargon or unfamiliar to you, but basically, what it means is that if you have access to your PLDT router, you have maximum control over your device.

So, how do you exactly access your PLDT wifi router settings?

Basically, all you need to know is the username and password of your PLDT wifi router. Once you know what they are, you can easily access the admin page, and do what you want to do with your device.

What’s my PLDT Router Username and Password?

The username and password depends on the type of PLDT device that you have.

You may use your PC (computer) and an Ethernet cable to access your router settings via wired connection.

  • Plug in your ethernet cable to the ethernet port on your computer.
  • Connect to the internet via wired connection (not WIFI)
  • Access your router’s admin page using the default gateway or IP address to check or change the settings.

How to Find PLDT Router IP Address in Command Prompt

If you can’t access your PLDT router’s admin page using the default IP address, you can use the “Command Prompt” in your computer to get the IP address.

Here’s how…

Step 1

In Windows PC, type Command Prompt or CMD in the search bar. Or, press Windows (icon) + R on your keyboard, then type “cmd” and press Enter.

The command prompt will appear in a black screen.

Step 2

Type ipconfig /all and press Enter.

You’ll find here your WIFI adapter information and the Default Gateway, which is the IP address that you will use in the next step.

Step 3

Open your Internet Browser (examples are Google Chrome, Mozilla, or Internet Explorer), then type the IP Address (Default Gateway) that you got from the command prompt, and press Enter.

Step 4

Login to your router’s admin page by typing your router’s User Name and Password in the box.

Step 5

You can now access your PLDT router admin page and do the necessary check or changes that you want.

What IF I’m still unable to login to the router’s admin page? 

If the above steps didn’t work and you’re still unable to access your PLDT wifi router admin page, there are two things that you can do:

  1. Hard Reset your PLDT Router
  2. Call PLDT Hotline for further assistance

How to Hard Reset PLDT Router

Before you do this, please take note that doing hard reset will totally erase the settings of your PLDT WIFI router. And the hard reset is performed, your WIFI devices might lose internet access and you’ll have to enter the password again.

  1. Find the small RESET button on your router.
    • For PLDT Fibr router, the reset button is located at the back panel.
    • For PLDT DSL router, the reset button is located underneath. (see image below)PLDT-wifi-router
  2. Make sure the modem is ON, then press and hold the RESET button for 5-10 seconds using any pointed object that fits in the hole.
  3. Wait until all the lights turn green.
  4. To re-establish your WIFI connection, use the default WIFI password located at the bottom of your router.
  5. To change your WIFI password, just follow the instructions above to access your router’s admin page, then change the password in the appropriate field.

    Good day. How’s this?
    I can’t connect to the router because of IP CONFIG FAILURE. I did all the basics of troubleshooting down to resitting but nothing happened.
    The IPv6 adrress is unusual showing this characters: fe80::1009:e79e:1d89:e5e8%4
    DNS Servers: fec0:0:0:ffff::1%1
    fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1
    fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1
    Thank you for the help.
