What is the Rain 5G router IP address? That’s a question that we have been getting a lot from Rain 5G users. It usually comes up when they are looking to log into their routers’ settings pages. For that, you need to have the default IP address, the default username and the default password. We have already written about the Rain 5G router default password. We noted that the company provides Huawei CPE Pro – H112 and Huawei CPE X – N5368 routers to it’s 5G customers for use free of charge. So, what is the Rain login IP address on these routers?
Default IP address on Rain 5G routers
The Rain 5G router default IP address is 192.168.8.1. This applies for both the Huawei CPE Pro and for the Huawei CPE X. Other IP addresses that are commonly used on Huawei routers are 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1. You can try these should the Rain 5G router login IPs given above fail.
How to find the default IP on any Rain router
That’s the Rain 5G router IP address. We have already noted that Rain supplies Huawei routers to it’s 5G customers. The routers are supplied free of charge. Should you, at some date in the future, later decide to cancel your Rain account, they will actually recover their router.
The Huawei CPE Pro – H112 and Huawei CPE X – N5368 are the ones being provided to customers at the moment, but they are not the only 5G routers on the market. It’s conceivable that at some point in the future, Rain will add more routers to it’s catalog. So, if you have a different type of router, how do your find the Rain login IP address?
Check on the router label
All routers come with a label on which is printed the information that you need to get to the admin area. The label is usually on the bottom of the device. If you have a mobile wifi router, the label may be inside the battery case. In any case, whatever it’s location, you will be able to find a raft of information on there.
There will be the default Rain 5G IP address. There will also be the default username, along with the default password. On some devices, you will also have the default WiFi password on there. So, everything that you need in order to get inside your router.
Find your 5G router’s IP address using command prompt
If you are on a computer, Windows has a nifty utility called Command Prompt. This utility can be used to find the IP address for any Rain 5G router. But how does that work? The following instructions should be helpful;
- Connect your computer to your Rain 5G router’s network. It doesn’t matter if there is no internet. This trick will work anyhow.
- Now look for Command Prompt on your Windows computer. Simply open the search utility and type in cmd.
- Once Command Prompt has been opened, type ipconfig into the window and press on the enter button.
- Go to Default Gateway and you will see your router’s IP there.
Why log into your router?
There could be many reasons for wanting to log into your Rain router. Perhaps you are looking to change your WiFi password. We have a popular article on how to change the Rain 5G router WiFi password.
South Africans are crafty people, and changing your password could become necessary if you suspect there are people helping themselves to your data without taking the courtesy of notifying you.
Or maybe they notified you that they, one way or the other, got hold of your password. But instead of being grateful for their honesty, you are now trying to kick them out. That can be done by changing the password in the admin area of your router.
Or maybe you wish to change the name of your connection to something fancy. A lot of people have been doing this. We once came across a network called “My WiFe” and another called “Get your own WiFi.”
