You can easily control a router with your mobile phone. For this, you should be first connected to a WiFi network and have a disrupted and strong WiFi signal.
Here are the simple steps that you can follow in order to connect your smartphone to a router.
Tips: Many users are initially connected to the wifi network but the connection is broken in the midway. If you enter the URL address in your mobile’s web browser in this situation, you will definitely get an error. So, make sure that the wifi signal is not broken.
1. Enter the URL Adress in the correct place
The URL Address of the router should be entered in the address bar of your phone’s browser. This will be normally available in the top part of the browser. Do not enter the URL in the search box.
2. Enter the URL Adress correctly
Be sure to check that the URL Adress you are entering is correct. Sometimes, the dot (.) part of the URL address is replaced by the comma (,). If you enter the URL Adress incorrectly, most browsers will show the search results for that address. So, you won’t be able to connect to the router from the search result.

You can control your router and change the setting from this interface.
