There have been times when you try to login to your router admin page but the site shows an error suggesting the page cannot be displayed or is blank. This may happen for a number of reasons which may include a defect in the Ethernet cables, improper connections or wrong IP address once modified by the user himself. In all three cases, the resulting page suggests that the router admin page cannot be displayed or is blank. In this blog post, we will take a look at the solutions for such an issue.
Troubleshooting when the router admin page cannot be displayed or is blank:
We are proposing four different approaches (solutions) to help you fix the “Router Admin page cannot be displayed” issue. If none of these work, you may have to directly contact the manufacturer and have your device rechecked for proper functionality.
Wrong or loose connections:
Your second option involves checking your device’s Ethernet ports. Almost all good router manufacturers like NETGEAR come with five Ethernet ports and internet port which connects through your DSL connection or cable and is usually separate from others. Another reason why you may not be able to view the router admin page is because the cables aren’t connected firmly at both ends. Once connected correctly, users are able to hear a brief clicking sound.
A change in IP address:
Starting with the very obvious, you need to ensure that you enter the new IP address in case you modified it instead of the default IP address. In case you didn’t change the IP address and are still unable to login, contact the manufacturer for a new IP address or for further assistance.
Disable popup blockers and firewall:
Reset your router:
Your last option to tackle the router admin page issue is to try and reset your router to factory or default settings. When considering this option, make sure to read the router manufacturer’s manual for instructions on how to restore the factory setting and rest the device. But before you reset your router, know that all the previous settings will be wiped out, including the ISP login, once you restore your device to factory or default settings.
