The Router’s Web configuration page is the “Settings” page for the router, this is where you access and change various options and credentials for the router.

How to Reset Password for http://192.168.100.1?
The “Reset” isn’t the same thing as changing a password. You can change the password when you already have access to the old password.
In that case you can simply login to the web-interface and make the change. Also changing a password lets you choose any new password of your choice for the router, while resetting doesn’t and simply reverts back to the default username and password for the router.
So in other words, resetting is used when you forget your login credentials and can’t login to the web-interface. It’s like hacking your router to go back to the “default” username and password.
Fortunately, for most routers the reset process takes less than 30seconds, and absolutely 0 skills, knowledge or expertise!
Note that resetting the router will also reset its IP address (if you had changed it), the WiFi login credentials and any other changes you made to it.
Step #1-> Simply hold the “reset” button on your router’s rear-side for 60 seconds. (For some routers it’s 10 seconds, for others it may be 30 or 60 hence we’re going with the safest bet considering how I’m not aware of your router’s exact Model and make).
Done. Try going to the IP address and logging in with the default credentials.
