Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on
the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an
ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers
id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and
press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for
example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such
as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and
downloading a manual.
a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given
to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up
some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field
blank then press OK.
you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most
probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your
not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that
you can follow.
everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try
the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is
on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the
application that came with the router or windows wireless
configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view
available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not
setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct
icon in the tray.
in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network
Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the
encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or
OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.
is your router connected to your ISP ? (does your dsl led light up ??)
if no! check your wires from phone to router!! and check your SPLITER !!! (i had the same problem, i got bad spliter !!! NEW BUT FAULTY !!!)
Hello, Good question..Phone line to DSL modem, Ethernet cable to WAN port on Router. If connecting a PC wired to Router, connect Ethernet cable from 1 of 4 LAN ports on Back of router to ethernet port on PC. This would be Physical connection...
It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1. This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. EnablingWEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!
I'll try and help you out with this but I need to ask you these:
1. Is the firmware of the MT880 compatible with the MT882? Have you checked their website for the correct firmware for the MT882?
2. Do you know how to access the routers web ui? If Yes, then try to go to Tools > Firmware Upgrade
