log in to your router by typing 192.168.1.1 in a browser. It’ll ask you for the username password.
The default user name for the Verizon MI424WR router is “admin,” and the default password is “password” (do not include the quotation marks).
- Note: To improve security, your router password may have been changed to the serial number of your router if you have not changed the password from the default of “password.” You can find your router’s password on the label affixed to the bottom or back of your router.
If you reset your router to the factory default settings, the router password will return to “password.”
Once you are logged in, select “My Network”, then “Network Connections”, then “Broadband Connection”, then “Settings”, then “Release” in the DHCP Lease: section
That’s it. Wait a few minutes for the router to automatically pick up a new IP. Your internet will not be working until it grabs a new IP. Do not panic. Don’t hit the Renew. If you hit Renew, you will get your internet connection right back, but will likely have the same old IP. If you simply wait a little while (less than 10 minutes), it’ll renew on it’s own with a new IP.
