Resetting Router Defaults
When we talk of a local network then the router is the first thing which comes to our mind. This is a device which provides the internet connection to the users connected with it in the local network. This also provides the IP Addresses to the devices in a local network. The router also comes with a pre-installed Default Router IP Address. This can be used to access the admin panel of the router in a local network.

Then the user can also access the admin panel by resetting router defaults.
