If you are using one of the Zain routers, you might want to change some of its settings at one point. In order to do that you need to know how to login to your Zain router.
In the following article we are going to explain what you need in order to login and explain step-by-step how to do it properly. If you get the things we are going to mention in the next section, the entire Zain router login will be completed in a minute.
So, let’s start!
Before You Login
In order to successfully login to your Zain router it is important to make sure you have the following:
- access to the network
- a computer, smartphone or a tablet
- the Zain router admin username and password
With these things ready the login process should be completed in a minute.
What Are The Default Zain Router Details?
The default ZAIN router login details can be found in the user manual or the label under the router. Here they are:
Default IP address: 192.168.8.1
Default admin username: admin
Default admin password: admin
NOTE: It is always better to check the label under the router and see what are the default admin login details. You can also compare the ones we have suggested with the ones printed on the label on the router.
If they are different try them both and see which username/password combination works. Eventually if you have a custom admin username and password, you’ll need to login with the custom ones.
How To Login To Zain Router?
Follow these steps carefully and you should see the Zain router admin dashboard by the end of this article. So, let’s begin.
STEP 1 – Is Your Device Connected To The Network?
This is an important step so we recommend checking whether your device is connected to the network. If it isn’t, you can connect over WiFi or connect the device and the router with a network cable. Once you confirm that the device is connected to the right network, proceed to Step 2.
STEP 2 – Start The Web Browser On Your Device
Now, launch any of the browsers you already have installed on the device. The browser is used to access the router’s web-based utility. It helps the user navigate through the settings in a very user-friendly way.
If you are asking whether you should use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox or some other web browser, we can say that you can use any of them. However, it is important to update it if you haven’t done it in a long time.
STEP 3 – Enter The Zain IP In The Address Bar
Now, type the default Zain router IP in the browser’s address bar. Press Enter on the keyboard and you should be requested to enter the admin username and password.
NOTE: In case you get a blank page, or a page saying “The connection has timed out” (on Firefox) it is possible that you have entered the wrong IP or that you have made a typing error. In that case retype the IP or check whether 192.168.8.1 is the right IP address.
STEP 4 – Enter The Zain Admin Login Credentials
When asked, enter the Zain router admin username and password. They are case-sensitive so pay attention. You can use the ones we have mentioned at the beginning of the article or the ones printed on the label.
When you enter the correct admin login details and you press that Login button, you should be taken to the Zain router admin dashboard.
STEP 5 – You Should Have Access To The Zain Router Settings Now
At this point, you have admin access to all the Zain router settings. Don’t rush too much with changing everything you think needs to be changed. Instead focus on the settings that can increase your network security.
Just to mention, all the default settings are a security risk for your network. Because of that it is necessary to change them as soon as possible.
How To Change The Zain WiFi Name And Password?
The default SSID can reveal the router brand which makes it easy to find the default login details. The wireless password protects our network from unauthorized access and that’s why we have to make sure our WiFi network is well protected with a strong password. Additionally, it is recommended to change the WiFi password every few months.
1. Login to your Zain wireless router.
2. Click on the Settings icon and then select Wi-Fi.
3. When you click on Wi-Fi, the 2.4G Basic Network Settings page will open. In case you want to modify the WiFi password for your 5GHz network, please click on 5G Basic in the menu.
4. Scroll down to the SSID Configuration Details section and in the SSID Name field type the new network name if you want to change it.
5. As Authentication Mode select WPA/WPA2 PreSharedKey.
6. In the WPA PreSharedKey field enter the new WIFi password.
7. Since you are logged in, please make sure to keep the Enable WPS checkbox unchecked. In case you don’t use this option actively, you should keep WPS disabled because it weakens the security of your network.
8. Click on the Apply button to save the new settings.
If you have changed the settings for the 2.4GHz network, you can do the same for the 5GHz network. Just don’t forget to connect your wireless devices again to your wireless network.

Accessing and securing your Zain router is not that complicated. Of course, there are several other security changes you should apply, but you can read about them in this article. After you login, it is recommended to write down the IP, username and password that worked for you and keep them for the next time.
This will save your time and nerves, because if you forget the admin login details you will have to reset the router to factory defaults and then set up your network from scratch.
