Requirements to access the Contec web interface

Accessing the Contec web interface is pretty straightforward and all you'll need is:

  • Contec router
  • Access to the network, Either through LAN-cable or through Wi-Fi
  • A web browser, which you clearly have.

Following are the instructions to connect to your Contec router's interface for configuration and diagnotstics.

1. Make sure you are connected to your Contec router

To be able to reach the setup pages of your Contec router, you'll need to be connected to its network.
So start by connecting to the network, either through WiFi or through ethernet cable.

Tip: If you don't know the WiFi password for your Contec router, you can always connect to it with an ethernernet cable, which won't require a password.

2. Open your web browser and navigate to 10.144.0.1

Open your browser and type the router's IP address into the address field. The most common IP for Contec routers is: 10.144.0.1 If that IP address doesn't work, you can search the default Contec IP address list for your specific model.

Tip: Since you're already connected to your Contec router, you can also use whatsmyrouterip.com to quickly find the IP. It is the "Router Private IP"-value.
10.144.0.1
Type the ip into the address field and press go

3. Enter the username and password for your Contec router

In the username and password field, enter your current username and password and press enter / sign in.

If you're not sure about the username/password you can look at the default Contec credentials to see what the defaults are, and how to reset to them.
- The credentials can also be printed on the label on the back of your router.


That's it! You can now configure anything you want on the device.


How to configure your Contec router

Once you have logged in to the Contec admin interface you should be able to change any settings that are available.
Be careful when you configure your router so that you don't break the network.

Tip: write down your current settings before changing anything so that you can revert it incase of trouble.

What if my Contec router or network stops working after a configuration change

In case you by mistake make some change that breaks your Contec home network, you can always go back to zero by following the generic 30 30 30 hard reset trick.

This is usually the last resort, and if you still have access to the Contec interface you can always login to try and revert the settings first (This of course assumes you wrote down the original value before changing it).
