FTTH stands for Fiber-To-The-Home. FTTH routers are also known as ONU or ONT depending on the technology the ISP is using. There are many ISPs that provide FTTH routers to their users and it is good to know that the settings of these routers can be customized without any problems.
In this article we are going to explain how to access your FTTH router settings and what to do if the router login process fails for some reason.
Before we start following the FTTH router login steps, let’s take a look at what you need to make sure it is successful.
What You Need:
To make sure the router login is successful, you need the following:

STEP 1 – Is The Device Connected?
We are sure you have taken care of this step while getting ready, but we have to mention it again. Only devices connected to the FTTH router network can access its settings. If the device is not connected or it gets disconnected for some reason during the login process the router login will fail.
Simply check this before you continue and reconnect if necessary.
STEP 2 – Open A Web Browser On The Device
In order to access the FTTH router settings you need to use a web browser. All the router settings can be managed through the router’s web-based interface and the web browser helps us go through the router configuration in a user-friendly environment.
Most router brands recommend using Chrome or Edge to access the router settings, so please use the recommended ones. You can also try using another web browser and in most cases, you shouldn’t have any problems. In case you notice some issues, use one of the recommended browsers or use another device.
STEP 3 – Enter The FTTH Router IP Address In The URL Bar

You can copy/paste them one by one in the URL bar and after you press the Enter button on the keyboard the correct one will make the FTTH router login appear.
STEP 4 – Enter The FTTH Router Username And Password
When the router login page appears, you should complete the required fields. Enter the router admin username and password given on the router label or try some of the following username and password combinations.
Press the login button after you enter the admin username and password and when you enter the right combination, you should see the router admin dashboard. Generally, the router admin dashboard will display some network statistics and additional data.
If you pay attention to the navigation menus you will see that all the settings are well grouped and organized. You shouldn’t have any problems finding the settings you want to modify.
For example, if you want to change the WiFi network name or password, it is usually located in the Wireless (Wireless Settings) section or if you want to change the admin password it can be found in the Management or Maintenance section.
