PLDT routers, by default, use the IP address of 192.168.1.1. If a PLDT router is to be integrated into an existing LAN network that uses a different subnet, then, we need to change the IP address of PLDT routers.
PLDT routers provide two accounts for logging into the web admin page for setting the router’s configuration. One of the accounts, the “admin” account, will not allow you to change the router’s IP address. The second account, the “adminpldt” account, is the real administrative account that gives you the power to change almost everything, including changing the IP address of the router.
The problem with the “adminpldt” account is that it is disabled by default. Before you can use the account, you need to first log in using a super admin account to switch on the “adminpldt” account. After that you log in as “adminpldt”.
In short, to be able to change the IP address of PLDT routers, you need to know several key information. First, what is the super admin account username and what is its password. Second, what is the password for the account “adminpldt”. And third, you need to know the IP address of the web admin interface. PLDT does not freely share this information in order to keep people from breaking their routers through mis-configuration. As a matter of fact, they have changed the passwords several times in the past.
Here are the key information that we need:
IP Address: 192.168.1.1/fh SuperAdmin Username: f~i!b@e#r$h%o^m*esuperadmin SuperAdmin Password: s(f)u_h+g|u Admin Username: adminpldt Admin Password: z6dUABtl270qRxt7a2uGTiw
Step by step guide on how to change the IP address of PLDT routers.
Open an internet browser. Type the address “192.168.1.1/fh” on the address bar and press the “enter key”.
Log in using super admin account.
Username: f~i!b@e#r$h%o^m*esuperadmin Password: s(f)u_h+g|u
Enable the admin switch, then click the apply button. Then click the “logout” near the top right corner of the window.
Log in using the “adminpldt” account.
Username: adminpldt Password: z6dUABtl270qRxt7a2uGTiw
You can now change the IP address of the router and you change other router settings that you need to change.
