This wikiHow teaches you how to clear your router's system log using your Internet browser. The system log records your router's activities, system events, and processes.
Step 1. Open an internet browser on your computer
You can use any browser, such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera.
Step 2. Enter your router's IP address in the address bar
Click on the address bar at the top of your browser and type in your router's default IP address.
- Most routers use 192.168.0.1 as the default IP address. If this doesn't work, try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1.
- If none of these IP addresses work, try restarting your router or disconnecting it from the Internet.
Step 3. Enter your router administrator username and password
This allows you to log into your router's management interface.
Step 4. Click the Sign Up button
This will log you in to the administrator interface of the router.
Step 5. Click the Status tab in the menu bar
Look for the button Status in the menu bar in your router's management interface and click on it.
- Depending on the model of your router, this button may also label Advanced or have a similar name.
- With most routers, you can find the menu bar at the top of the page or on the left side of the screen.
Step 6. Click System Log or Administrator Event Log in the menu bar.
This button opens your router's system log on a new page.
Step 7. Click the Clear Log button
This button will clear your router's history.
- When prompted to confirm your action, click OK or Yes.
