You probably already know how to get your system’s IP address in Linux. But how do you know the IP address of your router?


I am not talking about the public-facing IP which you can get by connecting to websites like Show My IP or simply searching for ‘what is my ip’ in DuckDuckGo.

I am talking about the default gateway IP which your Linux desktop uses to connect to it.

Why do you need it? Well, if you need to change the SSID, password, or other configuration of your wi-fi/network, you have to connect to it. And the simples way is to type the IP address of the router in a web browser and then use the router’s username and password.
