In the next paragraphs we are going to show you how you can easily access the Ooredoo router admin dashboard. The dashboard provides options to secure your network, use features like parental controls or create a guest network, set up port forwarding and so on.
Follow the steps presented here to login to your Ooredoo router and encrypt your wireless network. By doing this you will keep your network and personal files and information safe.
You Will Need:
- Access to the network over WiFi or Ethernet cable
- A device to connect to the network (smartphone, tablet or computer)
- The default or custom Ooredoo router login details
Default Ooredoo Router Login Details
Ooredoo uses different routers from different manufacturers and therefore the default login details will be different depending on the router you are using. For example, if you are using SuperNet you can try these default login details depending on the router model:
Router IP address: 192.168.100.1
Default Username: Epuser
Default password: userEp
Router IP address: 192.168.18.1
Default Username: root
Default password: adminHW
Router IP address: 192.168.100.1
Default Username: root
Default password: admin
Home Broadband users can try these default login details
Router IP address: 192.168.8.1
Default Username: admin
Default password: admin
These default login details can be used if you haven’t changed them or after you reset the router to factory settings. In most cases you will find them printed on a label on the bottom side of the router.
Login To Your Ooredoo Router (Step-By-Step)
Being prepared to login to your Ooredoo router will ensure the login process to be successful. Pay close attention to the following steps and explanations and you should see the admin dashboard in a minute.
STEP 1 – Make Sure You’re Connected To The Network
If your device isn’t connected to the network, you won’t be able to login to your Ooredoo router admin dashboard. The problem here is that just the devices connected to your network can be used to login to your Oredoo router. Devices that are not connected, can’t.
You can use the network cable to connect your device if there is a LAN port on it, or use the WiFi connection if you know the wireless password. Once you connect the device, move on to the next step.
STEP 2 – Launch A Web Browser On Your Device
After you connect, launch the web browser on your device. You can use the one you normally use and don’t worry if your internet connection isn’t working at the moment. You are not visiting a live website. The web browser will connect to the router’s admin dashboard aka. the web-based interface.
NOTE: If you haven’t updated your web browser for a longer period of time, please update it otherwise there can be some conflicts between the browser and the web-based interface.
STEP 3 – Type In The Ooredoo Default IP In The Address Bar
Now type in the Ooredoo router default IP in the browser’s address bar. Pay attention not to use letters at this point, the IP consists of numbers only. It is a common mistake when people enter letters that look like numbers, like the letters “l” and “O”.
After you enter the IP in the address bar, press the Enter button on the keyboard. If the IP is correct you will be asked to enter a username and a password to access the router settings. If that doesn’t happen by any chance, you can use this guide to check whether the IP you are typing is correct. In case you find out that the router is using a different IP, type that one in the address bar.
STEP 4 – Type In The Default Or Custom Ooredoo Admin Login Details
When asked to enter the username and the password, you can use the ones given above or the ones printed on the router label we have mentioned. If you use custom admin details please use them to login. However, in case you have lost the custom login details or can’t remember what they were, you will need to factory reset the router. However, please don’t do that if you aren’t 100% sure what the default admin username and password are.
STEP 5 – Welcome To The Ooredoo Admin Dashboard
After you enter the correct admin login details you should see the Ooredoo admin dashboard. The interface is pretty intuitive and you should be able to find the settings you want to change almost immediately.
NOTE: Create a backup of the router configuration before you start making some modifications. It is easier to restore a backup than to set up the network from scratch.
At this point we would like to recommend a few simple changes that can help you make your network more secure than before. You should change any
Change The Ooredoo Default Admin Password
The admin password is something you need to change right away. It helps us access the router’s admin dashboard and if we want to be the only one that can do this, it is important to change it. Otherwise, anyone connected to your network will be able to access the Ooredoo admin dashboard and you have to avoid that.
So, after you access the router settings, you can find this option under Account Management. You won’t be able to change the admin username, but in order to change the admin password you need to enter the old admin password first. After that, you will have to enter the new admin password twice and then save the settings.
In case you get logged out after you save the changes, login again using the new admin password.
And now let’s change the Ooredoo wireless network name and password. Please note that, depending on the router model, the web-based interface may look different. However, you should find the settings easily.

Change The Ooredoo WiFi Password And Network name
Changing the default wireless password or protecting the network with one is highly recommended settings that you have to modify as soon as possible. Since you have accessed the router settings, now you have to look for Wi-Fi Settings in the top menu. Click on it and the Wi-Fi Basic Settings page will open.
In case Wi-Fi isn’t enabled, enable it to see additional Wi-Fi options.
Wi-Fi name (SSID) – enter the desired network name here. You can make it more personal or set up a funny one.
Security Mode – The recommended settings to choose here is WPA2-PSK.
Wi-Fi password – here you can enter your new wireless password. Although the recommended password length is 8 characters, make sure it is 10 to 12 characters long. This drastically increases the password security strength.
Click the SAVE button when you finish making these changes.
We hope that you have found this article helpful and that you had no problems logging into your Ooredoo router. Making it more secure, by changing the default admin password and the WiFi settings, is also simple and straightforward and shouldn’t take much of your time.
Just make sure to remember the new login details after you change them. You will definitely need them after a month or two to change the WiFi password or when you want to make additional changes.
