Plug an ethernet cable from the router into the ethernetport of a computer and type in the router's ip address in the browser. For example the ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1
Once you have the correct ip address ( you can google your router'smanufacturer for the ip address if you don't know it), then the routers guiinterface will open up for you to configure the router. It will ask forthe user id and password. Most times this is the default password set bythe manufacturer unless whoever installed your router changed it. You canalso google your router's manufacturer for the default user id andpassword. In fact you could go to the router's manufacturer's website andlook at the manual for your router which will have the ip address, userid andpassword.
Once you are in the router you can go to the Wireless Settings and turn on the wireless and set a password for it.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
For that you need to enable dhcp on router.
Then set in your computer network adapter property to ip get automatic.

hi, tele you router show concocted internet if yes, cheek your cable and the common thing abut your system what this show in the network concoctions is there Local Area Connection concted show you sent received bytes R cheek your router configure for internet
First never post your user login info anywhere on the net that is not secure. A good hacker can always back track your connection and then they have access to your network and your personal files stored on your PC. So.. that being said when we get the problem solved, please be sure you CHANGE your Username AND Password on the router.
If you can't get logged in, my first question is are you on a Wireless Network? If you are, and you can, please make sure you are on a direct wired connection if possible.
On your router you will have a small hole that should have the word RESET around it. Usually near the power plug, on on the front near the lights. Take a paper clip and CAREFULLY push it into the hole. You will feel the resistance and the router will power off and back on.
This will put your router back to the factory default settings that it came with. If this is your presonal router use the manual you got with it for the user name and login. Usually ADMIN and Password, but can be different depending on the brand.
If this router came from the DSL Company and you are directly connected to it, then you should not have to do anything but reboot your PC.
Please let me know if this solves your problem. Thanks//Don
