BT Default IP Address List

Info updated Feb. 17, 2019

Most BT routers have a default IP address of 192.168.1.254.
The IP address is required when accessing the BT router's web interface to configure it.
Since some of the models don't follow the standards, you'll have to check in the table below if the common default doesn't work.

You can also check the instructions on how to figure out your BT router ip if you're connected to the router's network, or use the following tool to automatically find your BT router's ip address .

To access the web interface you'll also probably need a username and password, if you find your model in the list there's a link to the default settings for that model. Most BT routers use the same default usernames and passwords so you can also check the Default BT password list to try with that one.

Tip: Press ctrl+f (or cmd+f on Mac) to quickly search for your model number.
