All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).
Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.
The router's IP address can be changed by:
1. Running the router's setup CD.
2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.
If you forgot the router's IP address you can:
1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

NOTE: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
