Step 1: Connect to the Excitel Router’s Wi-Fi Network or Via Ethernet Cable
Connect your device to the Wi-Fi network being broadcasted by the Excitel router. Connecting your device to the router’s Wi-Fi network establishes a direct communication link between your device and the router.
This enables you to access the router’s admin portal and make necessary configuration changes. If you are not connected, you won’t be able to get access to the admin portal.
You can also use an Ethernet Cable to connect to your Excitel Router, but that may need some configuration, and most devices nowadays do not have Ethernet ports.
If you are setting up a new Excitel router or connecting with it after resetting it, you may find its default Wi-Fi Name, which may not need a password to connect with. The wifi name can be different for different routers made by Excitel.

Type the Excitel router’s IP address in your web browser’s URL bar. The IP address uniquely identifies the Excitel router on the network.
By typing the router’s IP address in the URL bar, you specify the destination for your web browser to establish a connection. This connection enables you to access the admin portal hosted by the router.
The IP Address is 192.168.1.1.
Try 192.168.0.1 if this does not work. Routers are typically assigned a default IP address that allows users to access their admin portals.
Step 4: Enter the Excitel Router’s Username and Admin Password
In most cases, when you go to the desired IP Address of 192.168.1.1, you will be presented with a screen like the one below.
To get to the login dialogue box where you can enter your credentials, you will have to click on “Back Login” in the top right corner.
After you click “Back Login,” you will be presented with a dialogue box where you can enter your username and password.
You will need to enter the default password and username to get into the admin portal.
- The username is “admin“. For some Excitel routers, the admin name can be “excitel” despite admin written on the back.
- Enter the password, which is exc@123. Password is also case-sensitive.
