Affiliate (FTC) Disclosure participates in the Amazon’s Associates Program. This is an affiliate marketing program designed to help website owners, bloggers, content creators, and web publishers to monetize traffic. Through participation in this program, we can earn associate commissions and advertising fees, which gives us the means to keep doing what we do. We use link-building tools to create links to Amazon and direct you to our recommendations. When you make a qualifying purchase using one of our links, we may get a small commission. 

Here’s how this works in practice. On this website, you can find a bunch of articles – step-by-step tutorials, how-to guides, troubleshooting guides, articles about default IP addresses, router login tutorials, etc. 

A small portion of our articles are product reviews and product recommendations. In these articles, you will find links that will redirect you to those recommended products (in most cases, links will redirect you to If you click on one of the ‘’affiliate links’’ and buy the recommended product (router, modem, wi-fi extender, access point, mesh system), we will get a small commission. That’s how we fund our work. The fact that we get a commission when you buy something doesn’t mean that you have to pay more – the price of the product remains the same and there’re no additional or hidden costs for you. 

We are not obliged to recommend any product. We don’t get orders or requests from Amazon or router manufacturers. The entire product selection process is done by the RouterCtrl team, without any external influences. It’s entirely up to us whether we are going to recommend some product or not. If we recommend it, it’s only because our research and evaluation proved that a product is worth recommending.
